If you love fine wine experience a special private daytour visiting some of the best vineyards of Châteauneuf du Pape, including a family-run estate, cultivated for 600 years by descendants of Pope Urbain VIII - world class wines. The village of Châteauneuf du Pape is the heart of a region full of history. A magical place that appears on the hill rising out of a sea of vines. At the summit the ruined château built by the popes in 14th century as a summer residence to escape the city heat of Avignon. The popes planted the town's first vineyards. On arrival visit the first local vineyard and learn about what makes the wines unique before lunch. In the afternoon visit two very different vineyards - first a winemaker with a 8ha vineyard based exclusively on the appellation & a 43ha family estate owned by five generations of wine makers. We introduce you to the iconic Châteauneuf du Pape wines established in 1880's where tradition is enhanced by modernism & excellence, & tasting of course.
