The trip starts in Avignon, a Unesco Heritage listed site and finishes in the medieval town of Vaison la Romaine. Wine is a religion in this part of the world, so there’s a feeling of sanctity to this walk, that you’re part of something that is much larger than just wine and the grapevines. The superb walking track works in concert with the most famous and picturesque of the wineries of the region to create one of France’s best walking experiences.
The walk starts in and around Chateauneuf du Pape southern France’s most prestigious wine village (and once home to the Pope). Grapes have been grown here for a staggering 700 years. The walks continue on from Séguret to Gigondas, two medieval villages perched high over the Rhône valley, framed by never-ending swathe of vineyards. The walk continues for 5 days walking from village to village via Vacqueyras, Le Barroux, Malaucène ending in Vaison la Romaine. It won’t take long to come to the realisation that by far the best way to discover these wonderful vineyards is on foot (not to mention all the archaeological and scenic treasures); strolling between the gnarled vines from one estate to the next, vineyards that have been run by the same families for generations. With importantly lots of wine-tasting opportunities along the way. The added 2 days of remote walking at Mount Ventoux are well worth the effort, the walks provide a unique perspective to this journey, with absolutely stunning views over where you came from and a diversity of flora that is unparalleled.
