Region – The Ventoux

Region – The Ventoux If you follow the Tour de France you'll have heard of Ventoux. The cyclists have wonderful views of orchards full of cherry, apricot and olive trees and lovely vineyards along this picturesque route. Exploring olive oil mills is a delicious education for your taste buds. Wine too should be explored in depth in this region - home of renowned names such as Cotes du Ventoux, Cotes du Rhone, Seguret and Vacqueras. The best way to explore the wines from Provence is by connecting with the growers and embracing their love story with the land - the flavours are enhanced and wine tasting takes on a new dimension. You don’t have to be a “wine drinker” to appreciate wine tasting. It’s an exploratory experience with your senses. Not a region but a culinary delight on its own – Avignon The gourmet, high-end produce, indoor market Les Halles in Avignon is the cherry on the cake. At the end of a foodie tour in Provence you will be able to synthesize all your culinary adventures at this market.

Just some of the culinary adventures that can be experienced in Provence: When to do a gourmet tour in Provence? June for the still lush countryside and cherries, peaches, apricots, strawberries and melons at the markets (also fewer tourists and less hot than July/August) September for all you have in June but add a grape stomp and grape harvest adventure Summer truffles from May until September Winter truffles from November to March Mushroom hunting in October and November
