Morning wine tour to Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire vineyards
Spend a wonderful morning visiting two charming wineries in Provence and enjoy stunning views of Cezanne's countryside!
Your morning tour starts at 9am when you will meet your friendly tour guide in Aix-en-Provence.
Climb aboard our upmarket minivan and set off for the scenic drive to the landscapes of Sainte-Victoire Mountain. See Provence through the eyes of the famous painter Cézanne who found inspiration in this beautiful scenery.
The Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire vineyards like all the vineyards in Provence, are considered to be some of the most natural in France due to the drying effects of the Mistral wind. The shallow soils, formed by limestone and argillaceous sandstone, produce high-quality wines.
Enjoy visits to two Provence vineyards for tours and wine tastings. Both of these estates have been selected by A la Francaise for their authenticity and charm. You might be lucky and meet the owner of the Domain!
Be sure to bring your camera and capture the views of the Sainte Victoire Mountain!
The wines you taste will be wonderful full-bodied reds with excellent structure (typical grape varieties used are Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Carignan, and Cabernet-Sauvignon), and subtle, elegant rosés.
End your morning wine tour of Provence with an appreciation for the wines and landscapes of Cezanne's countryside!
Your guide will drive you back to Aix-en-Provence where you will arrive at 12.30pm.
