Small group full day trip departing from Aix en Provence for a wine tasting tour of the south Luberon wine producing region. Meet at centrally located Tourism Office d’Aix en Provence. There, your English speaking driver/guide will go over the program and itinerary of this full day tour. The wine region of Luberon previously known as the Cotes du Luberon embraces the outlines of the Luberon mountain range. Another specificity of these wines is that they are considered to be mountain wines in a mountain appellation. Because of the variations in temperature, the red wines are crisp and the white wines are elegant and floral.
The main grape varieties that are used in the production of wines include Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah (for red wines) a grape that is also widely used in Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape wines. For the white wines, the main grapes include Clairette, Roussanne or Ugni Blanc.
During your tour visit 3 family-owned wineries that include a technical tour of the installations: vats and aging cellars. During the tour, you will learn about the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle. Finally, conclude your winery tours with tastings of delicate and aromatic reds, whites and rosés wines.
After the visits, we will return to Aix en Provence and that will be the end of our services. For those of you with a bit more time in the area, we strongly suggest our full day wine tour. We also provide wine & food tours in the Côtes du Rhône and to châteauneuf du pape as well as to the local Provence villages such as Les Baux de Provence.
