Cassis And Bandol Wine Tour

Product Image
The outstanding, picturesque landscapes of the Bandol and Cassis wine regions bordering the Mediterranean Sea are not to be missed. Visit typical wineries with vineyards planted on terraces and enjoy tastings from the Cassis white wines to the Bandol rose and red wines, widely praised by connoisseurs.

Cassis and Bandol Wine Tour

Travel in comfort through this mesmerizing and picturesque region with your local wine expert. In a small group of no more than 8 people, learn how the soils and the warm, coastal climate are ideally suited for the late ripening Mourvedre grape, which is the major varietal of the region.

Cassis is a small, charming coastal village of fishermen, and the wine-producing area in Provence in south-eastern France. The landscape around Cassis is classic Provence: clear, blue Mediterranean waters and terracotta rooflines, overlooked by limestone-white cliffs and surrounded by vineyards and garrigue. 'Garrigue' is the southern French word used to describe landscapes of dry herb-strewn scrubland over limestone soils, which is ideal vine-growing terroir.

This stretch of coastline is ideal for wine production. Protected from cool northerly winds by the surrounding mountains, the vineyards here enjoy sheltered, warm growing conditions. Cassis is known for its full-bodied, herb-scented white wines. A small quantity of rose and red wines made from certain grapes are also produced, although they are somewhat overshadowed by those from Bandol, just a few miles down the coast.

Make a stop for the breathtaking view from Cape Canaille, and enjoy free time for exploration and lunch on your own in Cassis.

Continue to the Bandol wine region of France. Located near the coast east of Marseille and Cassis, it is one of Provence's most internationally recognized wine regions. The Bandol AOC is based around the fishing village of Bandol, west of Toulon, and covers the production of 8 communes with distinctive soils.

Your day will be only enhanced as you enjoy tastings of wines from both the Cassis and Bandol regions. A day out for true wine connoisseurs, this tour is not to be missed. Book today as space is very limited and will sell out!
