Wine tasting in the Provence region


The world-famous Côte de Provence wine-growing region covers roughly 50, 000 acres and is best known for its quintessentially Southern French rosé wine (85% of the overall production). The vineyards selected for our Côte de Provence wine tasting tour also produce lovely whites and award-winning reds.

These two vineyards are enchanting, elegant and prestigious and it's always a pleasure to introduce you to them.

Our first stop will be the Château Font du Broc, you will be amazed by the beauty and charm of the place, surrounded by its French garden, its plane tree millennium, its cypresses, its old stones. . .

Lunch in the beautiful Provencal village of les Arcs.

Château Sainte Roseline: Last but by no means least, with seemingly never ending neat rows of vines. A property built on land first inhabited by a 10th century hermit. The first vines were planted in the 14th century, making it one of the oldest vineyards in Provence.

Itinerary

Château font du Broc: An hour's drive from Nice, into the charming Provence region.
Mr Massa, the owner and founder of Château Font du Broc, is a French success-story. Not satisfied with being a talented and accomplished businessman, he also produces wine that earned a place at many Michelin starred restaurant menus.

Lunch in les Arcs Village: After soaking up Château Font du Broc's relaxing atmosphere and taking your time to taste their wine, I will introduce you to the nearby village of les Arcs where you may order a tasty meal at a local restaurant. Followed by a stroll through the medieval streets of the village to help you digest.

Château Sainte Roseline: This Château is not only a prestigious winery, but also a beautiful preserved sacred site steeped in history. Pilgrims still flock here several times each year to the 11th century Chapel and cloisters which are spectacular in their own right. Today the estate covers 108 ha with 11 grape varieties.
