Full day 9 am - 6 pm

Morning:

We will head southwards to Cornas, north of Valence. On the right bank of the Rhone, the steep south-facing hills offer wonderful views over the Rhone and its valley. We will then visit a winemaker and tour his estate in a 4WD. This will be followed by an exceptional opportunity to taste seven major wines. We will then return northwards along the Rhone.

Free time for lunch:

We will stop in Tain l'Hermitage for lunch. With the help of our advice, you will be able to savour a meal at one of the many restaurants set around the typical Place Taurobole or on the banks of the Rhone for a more rural atmosphere.

Afternoon:

When the weather is fine, a walk to the Chapel, built on the top of the hill, reveals a stunning viewpoint over the Rhone and its vineyards.

Located in the centre of Tain l'Hermitage for more than 90 years, the Valrhona chocolate factory now invites you to visit its Cité du Chocolat. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse of its manufacturing process and discover its history and its secrets. In this interactive space you will be able to enjoy a virtual tour of the authentic chocolate making workshops. Naturally, there are many things to taste during the visit.

We will then continue our route northwards towards the Côte Rôtie vineyard. The northernmost vintage in the Rhone Valley enjoys one of the best reputations in the world. With its steep hills and vineyards planted on terraces, this wine-making area will delight you with its unique charms.

Finally, we will visit a family estate and discover its production as we taste five of its wines.
