- Wine tasting at a winery in Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Start your afternoon wine-tasting tour with the village of Gigondas. Located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail hill range, the vineyard covers an area of 12 km² : the wines produced belong to the Crus of the southern Côtes du Rhône. The Grenache noir expresses its full flavour in glimmering red wines with pronounced tannins, a robust body, and a solid propensity for ageing.
Continuation to the following destination, the famous vineyard of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The ruins of the Pope's formal summer residence dominate the typical medieval village.
The 13 varieties of grapes combined with the various soils create a large palette of complex red wines and elegant white wines. Enjoy a wine-tasting in one of the numerous cellars of the village before going back to Avignon.
