Excellent Private CDP Wine Tour
Excellent tour of Chateauneuf Du Pape with Romain. He is very knowledgeable and knows the area and the producers well. Enjoyed visiting small family owned wineries and spent time learning about the terroir and grapes native to the Southern Rhone. He also organized an amazing lunch overlooking the valley. Great communication, timely transportation and he even arranged a wine shipment for our bottles we bought while visiting. Also make sure you checkout his wine cave for a tasting. Highly recommend this tour with Romain.

A fantastic tour of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a winemaking region that needs us now more than ever due to the pandemic, just as we ne
I cannot understate the value of going on tours like these. Beyond enjoying the fantastic wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, which you will have plenty of on this tour, you will gain a greater appreciation for the region, town, history, and people. Romain, our tour guide, was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and passionate. In a tour van, we moved between vineyards and wineries for tastings, stopping for an exquisite lunch (at additional cost), walking among the ruined donjon of the Pope's castle, and finally at Romain's own small "wine cave".

Due to the fact that we were on this tour during the COVID-19 pandemic, I would like to stress two points. First, masks were required for everyone in the van and indoors unless we were in the process of doing the actual wine tasting. Second, as you can imagine, the pandemic has hit the tourism industry hard. These passionate and hard working people need us to get back to traveling and enjoying life again - resume travel, go on these tours, drink the good wine, and ensure that this industry continues to prosper long into the future.

Great experience and a strong recommend
May 2021 • Business
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of going on the first tour since the Corona measures loosened up in France. There were 3 stops during the tour:
- a stop in a vineyard where Romain provided us with some background information on the region, it’s climate, history, location and the grapes.
- a tasting at Château de Vaudieu where you also learn about the steps of wine making
- a tasting in his private cave

Romain is very knowledgeable and brings a pleasant personal touch to this experience. We tremendously enjoyed the tour and are definitely recommending it to everyone whether you’re learning your wine taste or if you’re a wine connaisseur.

Romain is a very knowledgeable and professional guide. The tour does not merely bring you from one tasting room to another but gives a more nuanced insight into the business of several wine châteaux. And there are plenty of tasting opportunities, great wines. The whole day is filled with fun, knowledge, and great taste.

Intimate Wine Tour With Fantastic Guide
Jul. 2020
What a fantastic tour. Romain was kind and knowledgable and always had an answer to any questions we had. The wineries we visited were superb and Romain was very careful at implementing Covid-19 safety measures. He also booked the group lunch at a very nice restaurant with amazing views. We enjoyed ending the day at his wine cellar. Could not recommend this tour enough and we hope to return one day!

This was an amazing experience; highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an authentic experience. Romain is highly educated on his wines and knew all the best places to go. The day finished with the group going to his own private cellar which was a great way to end. Thank you so much Romain, we will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!!!

Excellent trip to Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Jul. 2020 • Couples
Romain was a perfect guide for a half day tour of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wineries.
It was a really personal as R omain was very familiar and could provide the history and information about the one making process with the two wineries we had tastings at.
Learned much about the interesting different terroir in the region as well.
The ride was very comfortable in his modern Van. Coordination of the pick up location and communication made the trip seamless.
This was a very enjoyable half day winetasting trip and would recommend to all.

If you truly want to experience the best of Chateauneuf-du-Pape - do this tour
Jan. 2020
We had an absolutely amazing experience with Romain and booking a tour with him was the highlight of our holiday.
It was our first time visiting the Southern Rhone region - something we’d dreamed of for a long time since we work in wine in Paso Robles, CA.
Since it was our first time, we wanted to experience the true wines of the area and especially Châteauneuf-du-Pape, not just the ones we’d heard of or were bigger production.
Romain built the entire itinerary, so we didn’t have to worry about anything and picked us up in a central location in Avignon.
He took us into a vineyard and explained the AOC system, the unique soils of the region, the history, farming practices and so much more. It was a great way to truly understand the importance of the area and get a better appreciation for what we were about to taste.
When we arrived at our first winery, it became clear that by being with Romain you were going to get access to the wineries you never would’ve had on your own.
Everywhere we went he had set up a meeting with the owner or winemaker, and had full access to their winemaking facilities, cellars, etc.
He walked us through and talked about how that winery specifically made their wines, their philosophy and style and so much more.
We had the opportunity to try more than a couple 100 point wines on our visits and really felt like we experienced the unique flavors in the region.
He also set up a lunch at a stunning restaurant overlooking the area and vineyards, where we enjoyed their plat du jour - a menu of 3 delicious dishes that were cooked perfectly and filled us up for more wine.
We did the tour that also went to Gigondas and Beaumes-de-Venise, which was great because the drive there was beautiful and the wines were very different - so it was great to compare.
Romain is so much more than just a driver. He’s not only a level 3 sommelier, but he’s a born educator with a passion for sharing the regions story, wines and so much more.
You’re definitely going to learn something and connect with the area more than you could on your own, or with just a driving service.
If you’re considering doing a tour, just do this one - you won’t regret it.

Really awesome wine tour
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Me and a mate cruised into Avignon and got aboard a wine tour with Romain... I saw all the great reviews but this truly is a fantastic wine tour!! I have done ones in Argentina, Italy, Australia and New Zealand and this was by far the most amazing... Basically because of Romain and the uniqueness of Châteauneuf du Pape... can’t recommend this highly enough!!! Thanks for the day mate. Can’t wait to enjoy the wines at home....
