– Entrance tickets to any museum or monument
Start with a short walk through Chateauneuf Du Pape, a medieval village on the side of a hill, guarded by the ruins of an ancient “château” towering above. From the chateau you have an outstanding view of the vineyards, where your chauffeur will drive you next, discovering the most famous names like Chateau La Nerthe or the Domaine de Beaurenard. After that, head further north to enjoy the vineyards of the Rhone Valley. They are a world apart, a shifting landscape which winds and unwinds around a fluid axis: the Rhone, king of rivers, carrying silt and a sense of history. The Rhone is the linking factor, holding together these contrasting landscapes. Gigondas and Vacqueyras, your two stops, are the main AOC statuses of this surprising area.
Offering tastings of some of the best local wines, Les Caves De Saint Charles in Chateauneuf makes the wines come alive, speaking of their personalities and explaining what to look for in the tastings.
