The hill of Hermitage if something to be seen. It sits behind the town of Tain l’Hermitage in France’s northern Rhône region. At only 335 acres, what this small appellation lacks in size, it more than makes up for in reputation and prestige. This is the birthplace of Syrah, and without question one of the world’s most important, impressive and imposing winemaking terroirs.

Highlights for this excursion include a sommelier and French wine expert as your guide for the day at a premium winery, a wine-paired lunch, and tour and tasting at a famed chocolatier.
