Wine Trips

Visit vineyards, taste the wine and experience the local culture on a wine tour

Auberge du Vin - Rhone Valley

Not all wine tours are the same! We have put together an amazing Wine Tour for you with local expert Linda Field of the Auberge du Vin - a beautiful Auberge in the heart of the Ventoux vineyard. 

Linda, who runs Rhone Masterclasses across the Local Wine School network, has lived in the region for many years and is able to select some of the best local restaurants for your delicious lunches and dinners.
Your accommodation will be in the luxurious rooms of the Auberge (with swimming pool), with its own purpose built wine teaching facility overlooking Mt Ventoux and the surrounding vineyards.

Our group sizes are small and intimate
The group size is small and intimate enabling us to visit higher quality small artisan producers that larger tour companies just cannot arrange. The maximum number of guests is 12 and you will taste some truly stunning Southern Rhone wines. 

"Your relaxed and professional way of explaining everything makes it all seem so easy and uncomplicated. And in a beautiful setting too."
- Wine School visitor to Auberge du Vin
