Perfect Tour!!

We had a tour with Theirry (spelling??) and he was PERFECT! Upbeat, polite, fun and incredibly informative. He managed to even switch our tour around for an additional special winery. I feel like I know much more about Southern Rhone wines.
Fair and more of a shopping wine tour

The wine tour was fair. It wasn’t a Grand Cru wine tour. It should state clearly that it is merely a Côtes du Rhône tour. The first winery is plainly a wine shop with 7 bottles of wine to choose from. No explanation of his wine because the owner didn’t speak English. Few pieces of paper with few photos showing his barrels. You take a sip and decide to buy it or not. Quite disappointing. The second winery is better. The staff there explained detail on the type of wine and grapes they have. The guide showed us the manufacturing process (but he made it real quick because he wastes some time on picking up other guests ).The third one is the best of all. But our guide seemed to arrive there late and Chateau was going to close very soon. We didn’t get a chance to know everything in detail. We did had a look of the vineyard but no detail explanation(soil, humidity, wind, grapes ). Actually, I can see it everywhere if it is vineyard only. We have bought a few bottles at the end. The tour is fair but I would not say it is a Grands Crus wine tasting tour. The guide didn’t tell us anything on which winery were we going, what was the itinerary and what is the difference on choosing these three wineries plus waste some time to pick up other guests who didn’t show up at last. I guess they randomly picked three wines, took us there and earned a commission. That’s how this tour works.
Well worth doing

We had a great time. The tour covers a lot of beautiful Provence scenery. We enjoyed all of the wines. The highlight was visiting the cellar in Chateauneuf and being taught wine tasting by a master sommelier.

Our guide was exceptional; very knowledgeable, understood the history of the area, the geography, and wine making. He was extremely professional, courteous, and safe. He knew the vineyards, the people, and subtleties of the years and various blends. He went out of his way - and time to make sure we had food for an afternoon picnic. In summary, it was a wonderful experience!

We very much enjoyed our tour with a knowledgeable if not gregarious tour guide and would give this 4.5 stars. We visited two wineries Beaurenard in Chateauneuf de Pape and a very small one in Gigondas - both excellent. After Gigondas we were offered a chance to visit either a 3rd winery or additional villages in the area with some history. We choose the villages and were treated an excellent tour with good info on the wine and history from our guide.

JB was a great tour guide. We had a fantastic time on our tour. We visited two vineyards and had plenty of wine tasting. JB gave us a great history lesson in the area and was very knowledgeable of wine and wine tasting. The touring van was cool and comfortable. Additionally, we got to spend the day in the beautiful French countryside. Overall, it was a awesome day.

A really enjoyable and informative afternoon with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Two vineyards visited producing varied types of wine with a degustation and tips on how to get the best from a tasting, with a demonstration of the different terroirs and what they bring to the process. Saw some charming villages we would probably not have visited otherwise. Made our stay.

There were only three of us for this tour and our guide, J.B. picked us up in a nice sedan instead of a minivan. This made our travel time much more enjoyable it was quieter and more comfortable. J.B. is charismatic and professional. His personal and professional experience provided a depth and breadth to the information shared about the tour sites and the region in general. As we talked, he could tailor the stops and his presentation to our level of interest and knowledge. Seguret and Gigondas are beautiful villages it was interesting to see the countryside change as we traveled east from Chateauneuf du Pape. Late May is a wonderful time to be in Provence. It is comfortably warm and the plants and flowers are vigorous and showy. It is too early for the grand fields of lavender, but the poppies more than make up for them.
