Not all wine tours are the same! We have put together an amazing Wine Tour for you with local expert Linda Field of the Auberge du Vin - a beautiful Auberge in the heart of the Ventoux vineyard. You will also be accompanied by your own local wine school tutor, selected for their passion & wine knowledge, who will be on hand to answer any of your wine questions!

The Group size is small & intimate enabling us to visit higher quality small artisanal producers that larger tour companies just cant visit. You will taste some truly stunning Southern Rhone wines. The maximum number of guests is 12.

Linda has lived in the region for many years so has been able to select some of the best local restaurants for our delicious lunches and dinners. The £599 price includes all local travel, accommodation, wine tastings and meals (see list below).

Your accomodation will be in the luxurious rooms of the Auberge (with swimming pool) with its own purpose built wine teaching facility overlooking Mt Ventoux & the surrounding vineyards.
