My girlfriend and myself treated ourselves to the introduction to the Wines of the Rhone Valley as part of our recent holiday to Provence.
Our only regret - we didn't come earlier and stay longer.
Linda and Chris were excellent hosts - and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything from sandwiches, to booking a restaurant in Carpantras for dinner, through to a wonderful breakfast the following morning - everything was thought of and was really excellent.
The wine course itself lasted a morning and provided an excellent insight and introduction into the local wines and how to taste - something that Anna and myself have taken to doing a lot since we returned! But all in all, this was thoroughly recommended. A brief introduction by aid of a powerpoint, we were treated to a lesson in history, geography and ecology of the local area. We then visited the vineyards just outside the Auberge, and saw the different grapes undergoing their growing process, before having a tasting session. All of which was exactly what we were looking for - our only regret was that we only stayed one night - we will be back, and for a longer period too!!
