"The Original Syrah /

Shiraz & Viognier"

Public Wine Tour nº2

€ 89 / pers.


Welcome to the Northern Rhône valle, homeland of the legendary Syrah & Viognier grapes. Only 25 minutes south of Lyon, discover one of the oldest and steepest vineyards in France with terrace walls built under Roman times! Visit two family wineries and wine-taste Cote Rotie, Condrieu & St Joseph appellations considered among the best Cotes du Rhone wines ...


En route, stop in Vienne to enjoy a spectacular view on the 2000 year’s old roman theatre and the stunning panorama on the Rhone Valley. With your guide, learn about the "terroir" and the different grapes characteristics of the Northern Cotes du Rhone Region.

Then, cross Ampuis town, the world capital of Syrah and visit Cote Rotie vineyards literally "roasted hillside". Drive on the precipitous vertigo inducing terraced slopes of Cote Brune and Cote Blonde and appreciate the 30 to 60 degree angles hills bathed in sun facing the beautiful Rhone river.

Later drive through Condrieu, birthplace town of Viognier grape which produces the world famous white wine. The group will get to know its unique story, how this grape variety almost died a few years ago.

Then, push the door of a first family winery and enjoy a private winery tour: learn some secrets about the unique Rhone wine-making savoir faire and the art of barrel aging. Then, taste 5 different Cotes du Rhone wines among them, some Condrieu, St Joseph or/and Cote Rotie.

Finally, stop at a second winery to delight yourself with another 5 beautiful Rhone wines: take time to enjoy the intense aromatic Viognier and the quasi absolute perfection of Syrah / shiraz grape of the Northern Cotes du Rhone.

A wine tour you will remember for ever !
