Know More about this tour

Leave Aix-en-Provence in the morning, and travel east with your guide by minivan to the foothills of St-Victoire Mountain, a stunning peak that rises some 3,317 feet (1,011 meters), dominating the Provencal landscape. The landmark was a source of inspiration for the painter Paul Czanne in the late 19th century, featuring in many of his Post-Impressionist masterpieces like Mont Sainte-Victoire and the Viaduct of the Arc River Valley.

A popular winemaking region, the softly sloping hills are home to countless vineyards that thrive with the temperate climate and fertile, yet shallow, soils. In turn, this produces some of Provences best wines full bodied with abundant minerality.

Visit two of the renowned Ctes de Provence St-Victoire wineries, and sample glasses of their prized reds and ross during wine-tasting sessions with your guide. Learn about the region, the different wines and their subtle complexities that afford their winning flavors. After each wine-tasting session, explore the wineries to see where the wines are aged and bottled and to soak up the rustic Provencal ambiance.

Return to Aix after your second wine estate tour, and then end your tour with a drop-off at the start point.
