In the morning you walk through the vines, alongside tracks packed with the red rocks that were deposited here 15 000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age. They absorb the heat during the day and emit it at night, keeping a constant warmth in the vineyards, and helping produce powerful and spicy reds. The full loop option passes by the famous estate of Château Mont Redon.
In the afternoon you will have some free time in the lovely Chateauneuf du Pape village, to wander from one wine shop to the next all the way to the castle OR enjoy a half-day wine tour with a local wine expert (3h) Our wine specialist will unveil all the secrets of these vines, taking you on a tour and leading you through a wine-tasting session. You’ll learn the concepts of terroir and appellation while perfecting your wine tasting technique. Night in Chateauneuf, dinner on your own.
