Tour #1 : 1/2 day The wine route tour starts at 1:30 pm finishes at about 7:00 pm. Visited wineries may vary according to availability of owners.
1st Stop at a winery in Vacqueyras Le Clos de Caveau, producing organic wines rated 91 by Robert Parker. These wines have won a gold medal at the Paris trade fair (most famous award in France for wines) Tasting of 3 to 4 wines and explanations on organic wine making.
"This Vacqueyras, Carmin Brillant, which was macerated for nearly three months (very unusual) and then put in two year old barrels, is among the most concentrated wines I tasted from this vintage. A singular effort that must be admired… with extracts and density levels off the charts."
Carmin Brillant 09, Wine Advocate #191,Oct. 2010.
