The Cotes du Rhone region is renowned for its top-class wines, including its robust reds, but exploring its wineries independently usually means renting a car. This small-group tour from Lyon makes it easy with comfortable transport, tastings in the Hermitage and Cote-Rotie appellations; and a guide’s insight for a more rounded perspective than if you were exploring alone. A lunch stop (own expense) and up to 12 tastings are included.
