Walk & Wine in Chateauneuf du Pape

375

Chateauneuf du Pape is southern France’s most prestigious wine village : grapes have been grown here for 700 years. The best way to discover these vineyards is by foot, strolling between the gnarled vines from one estate to the next, run by the same families for generations. Based in the heart of Chateauneuf du Pape, you’ll have lots of wine-tasting opportunities.
And above all a half-day’s guided wine tour with a local wine expert.

PLEASE NOTE 
All of the wineries are closed on Sunday : therefore the wine session can not be done on Sundays, and will be switched to the Saturday if needed

  • Morning : Morning walk in the vineyards. With such a prized terroir every square meter is planted with vines, seemingly gnarled hands reaching up from underneath the earth, proudly displaying bunches of Grenache and Syrah. A splendid afternoon loop walk stays within the heart of the Chateauneuf appellation, strolling on farming tracks in between the parcels of vines, which lead from one estate to the next. The itinerary takes you to 3 widely-known wine estates - Chateau Vaudieu, Nalys, and Solitude - all centuries-old, all happy to share their savoir faire with you during a wine-tasting. The reds are deep and heavily spiced, while the surprising whites have notes of almond, spice, and honeysuckle.

Chateau Mont Redon famed vineyards

  • Another day walking through the vines, alongside tracks packed with the red rocks that were deposited here 15 000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age. They absorb the heat during the day and emit it at night, keeping a constant warmth in the vineyards, and helping produce powerful and spicy reds. We recommend the full loop option that passes by the famous estate of Château Mont Redon.
