Nice – Wine Tour in Cotes de Provence
The Côtes de Provence wine region is famous for its rosé wine and magnificent scenery. On this tour, enjoy a more intimate tasting experience, traveling in a small group of just 8 people. Enjoy wine tasting at three different wineries, including a Cru classé winery; sample a variety of red, white, and rosé wines; and stop for lunch (own expense) in a traditional Provencal village.
You’ll meet your English-speaking wine expert guide at 9 am in front of our meeting point (centrally located) in Nice. Your guide will drive you in a clean, comfortable & A/C minivan accommodating up to 8 people maximum. Around 10 am, you’ll arrive to the wine region of Côtes de Provence. You’ll visit 2 wineries in the morning, get about 1h30 free time for lunch in a quiet village of Provence, and then visit the 3rd winery in the afternoon. You’ll taste some of the finest Rosés from Provence but also powerful and well-balanced reds, and aromatic and lively whites.
You’ll be back to Nice around 5 pm to the place where we met in the morning. We select different types of wineries in order to offer you the opportunity to see different ways to work. We have developed partnerships allowing us to take you behind the scenes: from the winemaking & the aging rooms to the bottling lines: you’ll see everything!
Your guide will also explain you about the soil, the climate, the grape varieties, the famous “terroir” but also the picking, the pruning, green harvesting and many other subjects in a relaxed and educational way.
