OUR PRIVATE WINE TOUR TO CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. Our guide, Marc Jonas, is very wine-knowledgeable and fun to be with. We pass through the town of Orange, one of the five communes that produce the best known of the Rhone wines, the rich and complex blended wine (both red and white) called Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
First we visit the cellars of Maison Bouachon, where we enjoy a pleasant tasting of several fine vintages of their Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Next we head to a high plateau, site of a large family winery, Mont Redon. we can see the Palais du Pape in distant Avignon. We taste some very wonderful wines and buy several bottles.
