Château de Beaupré, Château La Verrerie & Château Bonisson intensive Provence fine wine experience
Provence is one of the oldest wine regions in France - in fact it was the Greeks in 600BC that first brought vines here, so it's only natural that we pride ourselves on the excellent selection of Rosé wine that Provence is famous for. On this tour you will visit three exceptional wine makers with a unique history and heritage in winemaking - Château de Beaupré, six generations of wine making heritage that began in 1855, Château Bonisson, a destination and source of inspiration & creativity and Château La Verrerie which sits between the Rhône and Provence. The estate covers 48 hectares and produces around 250,000 bottles each year. This is an experience of discovery, Provence is the world's largest production of Rose wine, many of which are regarded as some of the best in the world. Nowadays they also produce some excellent reds and whites - this experience will take you on a journey of discovery.
