Wine tour by electric-powered bicycle: this wine growing region will have no more secrets for you.
What better way than the electric bike to discover our fabulous terroir of Chateauneuf du Pape. The geological diversity of the soils here is really surprising, in most wine regions where you will visit the surrounding vineyards, you will have to go several miles before finding different soils. Here nature has drew the soil so that it can changes several times in a few tens of meters. This, of course, gives Châteauneuf du Pape’s wines such complexity and singularity. Come discover with me the relationship between the soil, the climate, the variety, and the winemaker, the 4 components that explains what Terroir is. With a native like me, the terroir will have no more secrets for you. Enjoy my privileged relationship with the winemakers who trust me and give me the keys to their Chateaux so that I can open doors which are usually closed.
