This shore tour is currently on a waitlist status. For a complete description and pricing, contact Food & Wine Trails.

In the past, serious wine drinkers have been known to roll their eyes at the mention of rosé wine. If you spoke to sommeliers about rosés a decade ago, the conversation would have focused on the frustration of persuading an unwilling public to give them a try. Now, in the summer the public wants little else. A good rosé, at a lunch served outdoors, preferably seaside or at a sidewalk café table, will transport you to Provence as quickly as you can say Brigitte Bardot. Some of the best rosés come out of the Mourvèdre-dense terraced hills above Bandol, as it is not only one of the most recognized rosé-producing regions, but one of the best in the world.

,Highlights Include:
Guided by a Provence wine specialist
Visits to two top regional wine estates for tours and tastings
Provencal gastronomy wine-paired lunch featuring local ingredients
