Description

Begin with pickup from your accommodation in Nice in the morning. Relax in the comfortable and air conditioned van on the way to Biot. Learn about the manufacturing of Biot glassware which is known for its quality around the world. Continue to the hillside village of Opio which is nestled between olive groves, pines, cork oak, and strawberry trees. Head to a rare 15th-century mill that is still in operation. Savor some regional products paired with some delicious olive oil. Travel to the breathtaking hilltop village of Gourdon which offers exceptional views of the entire French Riviera. Capture pictures of its 9th century castle and its sumptuous garden which was designed by the Versailles landscaper André Lenotre. Be awed by a 40-meter-high waterfall in the Gorges du Loup. See the village of Tourrette sur loup which owes its fame to the violets, which have been its main crop since 1880. Unlock the flavors of the countryside at a wine estate in Saint-Jeannet. Sample 6 wines with red, rosé, white, and sweet options. Listen as the winemaker tells you about how the wine is aged by harnessing the power of the sun with glass carboys. Sit where you can admire superb paintings by Remy Rasse who also produces wine labels. After your tasting, return to your accommodation in Nice by van.
