Provence Discovery Trip

If you’re a journalist or professional sommelier, the Provence Wine Council invites you to apply for our annual fall Provence discovery tour. The five-day trip will take you from one end of Provence to the other, introducing you to exceptional terroirs and vineyards. Here's what you can expect to do along the way:

  • Meet with producers
  • Taste an array of red, white, and rosé wines
  • Deepen your knowledge of Provence as a wine region
  • Soak in the beauty and diversity of the region's wines, food, and culture
Applications for this year’s trip (Oct. 5-10, 2014) are now closed.

Interested in next year's trip? Please contact Carlene Hastings at the Wines of Provence U.S. office (trade@winesofprovence.com or 202-499-4263202-499-4263) for more information!
