From the heart of the Provencal Vineyard between Mountain and Sea, from the Luberon, to the legendary Chateauneuf du Pape, discover the ancestral history of the French grapevine in this magnificent region. The vine was introduced by the Phoceens 2600 years ago, but it was the Romans who really developed the vine in France from 200 BC and organized the Romana Province, today called Provence.
Take a cultural and historical journey under the Sun in the South of France among remarkable sites such as Sainte Victoire, Cassis, the Luberon, Châteauneuf du Pape, Beaumes de Venise, Gigondas and Vacqueyras.
Every day, discover different vineyards and appellations, accompanied by wine experts – More than a wine tasting tour, we propose enriching encounters with winemakers, oenologists, sommeliers, historians, speakers… Embark for an educational and tasteful journey in the heart of the Provencal Vine.
