Meet your guide near the Place du Président Wilson in the Toulouse city center, where you'll board an awaiting climate-controlled minibus and begin the half-hour drive into the countryside to the Fronton wine region.

The first grapes cultivated in this region were grown by the ancient Romans, making this one of the oldest wine-producing regions in France. Centuries later, Fronton wines were favorites of the nobility. Today, although the Fronton appellation may not be as well-known as others in France, it produces some singular wines using primarily its signature grape,  négrette.

The first stop on this wine tour is at Maison des Vins de Fronton, where you'll meet the owner to learn about wine-making in the Fronton region. Find out about the  négrette grape, which is grown nowhere else on earth, that makes Fronton wines unique. Taste three different wines from different vineyards in the area before enjoying a scenic walk through the surrounding garden.

The next stop is at a winery on one of the highest plateaus in the Tarn Valley, offering excellent views. Meet the winemaker to hear about the local passion for the  négrette grape – this winery is considered a global ambassador of sorts for the varietal – and the winery's commitment to eco-friendly agriculture as you sample some of their wines.

Climb back into the minivan for the return trip to Toulouse, during which your guide can give you travel tips for the area, including restaurant recommendations.
