Experience the wine regions of Provence and the Rhône Valley like an insider! Native Frenchman Jean-Christian Rotagni of Contrast Wines will take you to the best local restaurants, wineries as well as dine with winemakers. You will even tour several wineries during the harvest and crush, a rare opportunity.
But this is not just a wine tour. You’ll also visit Roman and pre-historic vestiges like the oldest cave paintings in Europe, and meet local photographers and artists. For a unique experience, Jean limits the number of guests, books hotels that are four star or equivalent and selects restaurants with quality cuisine.
