On the programme

9/9.30am : Meet at your place of residence and depart for the first estate.

10am : Arrival at our first vineyard. An authentic and totally charming family vineyard, now managed by the next generation and who produce some of the most interesting and highly rated wines in the Bellet appellation. A wander through in the vines and a guided tour, is followed by an exploration of the cellars and the winery where you’ll learn all about making these wines – red, white and rosé - in a relaxed and informal way.

Then we’ll have a tutored tasting of some of the latest vintages and best wines from the cellar. You may even get chance to taste some of Grandma’s home make treats and the estate’s own olive oil...

11.30am : Visit the second vineyard. This château, truly the historic heart of the Bellet, has stunning views over the sea and mountains – and itself a fascinating history going back to La Belle Époque and before. We’ll have a guided tour of the grounds where you can appreciate the beauty of the environment and of course taste some of their long-aged wines in the special tasting room.

12.45pm : Lunch break in the medieval village of Saint-Paul de Vence, where you will have time to visit its ancient, narrow streets filled with some of the best art and modern art galleries to be found anywhere.

3.15pm : Visit the third vineyard. At this amazing property, with a real human story and a wine history like very few others, you’ll encounter a true artist. Freed of the constraints of an appellation, this winemaker relies on ancestral methods and nature to produce some remarkable bottles in very limited quantities

5.30pm : Drop-off at your place of residence.

(Itinerary may vary according to weather, traffic and availability of the vineyards).

Beth

Group wine tour.

Commenté le 22/05/2024

Our guide, Peter, was very knowledgeable and personable. He made our experience appropriate for the various levels and expertise (& lack thereof) of our group. The three wineries we visited were each very unique and interesting. We highly recommend.

Exceeded our expectations!

Commenté le 07/09/2023

We loved our wine tour for so many reasons! We really enjoyed seeing the small batch, family owned/operated wineries. Exactly what we were looking for! Our tour guide, Peter, was amazing. So knowledgeable and welcoming. He went above and beyond to cater the experience for our group providing us memories we'll never forget!
