About: Northern Provence Presentation
Join The Asheville School of Wine and Sylvie Delaunay of Provence Detours on Sunday, May 20th from 3-4pm @MetroWines for a wine tasting with cheese and charcuterie to accompany a presentation about the cuisine and culture and discussion of a hosted tour of the area. 
Sylvie Delaunay, owner and operator of Provence Detours, will offer a power point presentation called "Flavors and Splendors of Northern Provence" with details of the planned trip to the area.
  From Provence Detours: Nestled in the Rhône Valley at the northern end of Provence, our tours explore the riches of Drôme, home of the Côtes du Rhône wines. Relax and savor the charm and peacefulness of rural Provence as you experience Drôme’s sprawling vineyards, brilliant lavender fields, mountain-perched villages, and sunny blue skies. It’s a region you shouldn’t miss — home to its own identity and culture, stunning landscapes, and incredible local flavors. Take the time to stop, explore, and savor parts of France you never knew existed.

Meet the local shop owners and proprietors who have called the region home for generations. Experience sights and sounds off the beaten path — exploring places no other tour does. Taste the food of the region, grown mere steps from the medieval villages you’ll explore. Taste wines from the vineyards you’ll see as you explore the region.

Local farms, olive groves, forests, and orchards provide the quintessential Mediterranean fare you’d expect for a journey through Provence. Explore historic villages, perched atop mountains and cliffs, wandering the cobblestone streets and soaking in the warm French sun.

  Rest easy at the end of each day in a warm and inviting bed and breakfast — you’ll enjoy the same location the duration of your trip — where you’ll connect with your travel companions, share stories, and build relationships with people from around the world.
