Wine Tastings


Touring the vineyards is a wonderful experience. We should know - we do a lot of it! But it can't compete with a "at home" tasting if you want to experience the broadest possible range of Rhône wines.

We offer private tutored wine tastings wherever you’re staying in the Rhône valley – family home, holiday villa, hotel suite, we've visited them all. We turn up with everything you need: the wine, the glasses, pens, tasting sheets, maps, you name it. We can even bring along a selection of local artisanal bread, cheeses and charcuterie as part of the price. And when it's all done we clear up after ourselves.

Tastings include 8 - 10 different wines and last around two hours. They are tailored to your knowledge level, catering for everything from those who simply like a glass of Rhône wine through to winemakers and importers. Whatever your level, the tastings are a fun, relaxed way to learn more about the region's wines.

Prices start at 250€ for groups of up to 10 people - so as little as 25€ per head. And if the prices aren’t reasonable enough, all the bottles opened during the tasting are yours to keep and enjoy at your leisure over the rest of your stay.

The Rhône produces wines in every colour and style: red, white, rosé, still and sparkling, dry and sweet. It's your tasting so you get to choose! The possibilities are almost endless, but here are some suggestions if you're looking for inspiration:

A Tour of the Rhône - the whole region from north to south, all colours, all styles.

Big Reds - Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras form the backbone of this tasting, but big, bold Rasteau and the north get a look in too

Northern Classics - The northern Rhône is the home of the syrah and viognier grapes, not to mention marsanne and roussanne, giving wines of class and elegance. This tasting covers the whole of the northern sector with wines from Côte-Rôtie, Cornas, Crozes-Hermitage, St. Joseph etc.

Hang the Expense – A very special tasting of the best that the Rhône has to offer – Hermitage (red and white), Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Châteauneuf-du-Pape included.

If you would like to know more please contact us on or call us on +33 (0)6 05 80 29 46. And If you're staying in the Nyons/Vaison-la-Romaine area shorter tastings are available. They may be cheaper but they're just as much fun, just as informative, only with a little less wine.
