One of the most scenic wine regions with wines,  minerals, troglodyte caves and fairytale castles.   Lyon is known for its rich food and the Rhone Valley for its red wines – tinged with pepper and grapefruit flavor.  We’ll organize wine tastings at Domaine de la Janasse or Domaine Beaucastel, among the best wine producers in the region.  Visit the medieval village of Châteauneuf du Pape, looking over 3,000 hectares of vine fields.
