Northern Rhone valley
The Wine Safari in the north permits you to visit the wine areas, situated on this map. It is called "Le Dauphiné" or "Rhône Septentrional", and it is located between the cities of "Vienne" and "Valence". The vineyards are characterized by red wines for a unique variety, Syrah.
You will discover some famous appelation like Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Château-Grillet, Saint-Péray or Cornas.
Mike Rijken will conduct you into one or two wineries (you can indicate preferences).. during your journey you will have a lecture about : the region, vineyards and viticulture (grape, soil, pruning...)
Once arrived at the winery you can be welcomed by the winemaker/owner and eventual guided by Mike through the cellar. you will get information about the wine, how to tasted, how to serve and gastronomic advise. Possible purchases in the winery.
Our Wine Safari permits you to know a lot about specific winery and region. it is therefore that we visit "one" wine region and one winery per half day. As Mike says: "It is better to know a lot about one winery, than seeing a lot of tasting rooms and do not remember the first wine that you had."
