B&B and Wine Tasting Tours in Provence
Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat
A superb wine tour :
"This tour is great for those new to wine, or those who already have some knowledge on the topic. Charles has selected some excellent vineyards to visit, and provides great insight into the cellars and how the wine is produced. We would definitely recommend this tour, it was the highlight of our trip, and was topped off with the most amazing gourmet dinner at the Michelin starred restaurant where Charles drove us to share this unique moment. "
"We very much enjoyed our time together with you. And we loved the wines. We are still amazed that we tasted so many wines (28) and so many of them were delicious. "
Educational and fun !
"Doing a wine tasting tour through the Cotes du Rhone region with Charles' knowledge and the high quality wines was a once in a life-time experience for us! "
