We arrived at our hotel in Avignon and hunted down François from his classy brochure he'd left at the hotel, getting into contact with him later in the afternoon. He was very flexible as it was the low period and shifted his normal tour schedule around to fit us in and to what my mother and I would like to do. I personally work in the wine industry so informed him that he didn't have to be so basic with descriptions so he tailored the tour appropriately. We tasted some fabulous wines and had fun just the three of us for the entire day travelling to three wineries in the CDP wine region and eating a delicious French meal with wine for lunch then a small degustation in the Gigondas area too. It wasn't all just wine wine wine, we also viewed towns from excellent vantage points and visited some ancient castles. François knows his stuff (he was a sommelier for many years in his previous life) and was recommended also by the hotel staff as he only does wine tours, not other fluffy lavender tours too. If you're into your wine, go with him, he speaks excellent English and is a laugh. He also has the best prices as far as I'm concerned so his attention to detail is next-to-none! Thanks François!
