Welcome to the south of the Rhone Valley where the green of vine cultivation predominates and sublimates the blue of lavender fields, the grey green of olive groves… These hilly and colourful landscapes inspire many painters…
Push the door of the winegrowers’ cellars, they have plenty of ideas to pass on their passion. They offer many activities related to wine tourism that develop in an original way around warm encounters.
In the heart of the Rhône Valley wines, the Drôme Provençale is a land of vineyards par excellence.
It thus obtained the label “Vignobles & Découvertes “ in 2014, becoming the 50th French destination recognised for the quality of its wines.
The AOC of Grignan-les-Adhémar, the Côtes du Rhône Méridionaux, and the Cru Vinsobres, make the reputation of our terroir. Further east, it is the Coteaux des Baronnies that express their belonging to the Mediterranean mountain. Up to 12 different grape varieties can be grown here. The hot and dry summers, favourable to the good ripening of the grapes, and the balanced soil give this character typical of Rhone Valley wines.
The flagship of professional training, the Wine University also opens its doors to the general public by offering numerous weekend and summer internships, in the sumptuous setting of the Castel of Suze la Rousse offering a brand new museum tour dedicated to the cultivation of the vine.
