Rhone Wine Tour
4 DAY Wine Tour of the Southern Rhone - £699.00 (based on two people sharing, or £849.00 for single occupancy)
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, voted "One of the World's Top 10 hotels for wine lovers" by The Drinks Business Magazine.You will also be accompanied by your own localwineschool 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.
