Come discover and taste the wine of the south area of the Northern Rhône Valley!
Morning: From your location, you will be heading to the famous burned soil of Cornas vineyard. The south-facing steep hillsides have the shape of a natural amphitheatre that keeps the cold wind away from the vines.
The Syrah, the only grape variety used in this AOC shows here its full power.
Cornas is a very dark red wine, almost black, with nice purple highlights when it is young and amber-coloured when it gets older. It is one of the most full-bodied wines in France. You will taste this powerful wine with roasted chocolate aromas in a local winery.
Not far from here, there is another authentic AOC wine area that makes a very original white wine.
The AOC Saint-Péray wine is the southernmost of the Northern Côtes du Rhône and one third of its wine is sparkling!
You will visit another wine estate to taste his delicate and fresh, aromatic and well-balanced wine that has mineral and floral flavours.
You will absolutely like the toasted bread, honey and almonds taste.
Lunch: Free. Your guide will be happy to show you good local restaurants.
Afternoon: You will go further north, just a little bit, to meet a legendary Cru, the Hermitage. Planted on a granitic soil since the Roman times, this wine is mostly red, are powerful and fleshy and at the same time very round and soft in the mouth.
The white wines have instead, creamy and honey hazelnuts, peach and apricot aromas. They will inevitably seduce you during the tasting!
