Morning

Vienne City, Visit of Cote Rotie and Condrieu wine country:

At 9:00 am, your English speaking driver-guide picks you up at your hotel or appartment in Lyon or close suburbs for a private wine tour to the Northern Cotes du Rhone vineyards.

En route, stop in Vienne city to enjoy a spectacular view on the 2000 year’s old roman theatre and the stunning panorama on the Rhone Valley. With your Lyon wine guide, learn about "terroir", the geography, Cote Rotie, Condrieu and St Joseph wine appellations.

Then, cross Ampuis town, the world capital of Shiraz grape and visit "Cote Rotie" vineyards literally "roasted hillside". Drive on the precipitous vertigo inducing terraced slopes of "Cote Brune" and "Cote Blonde" and appreciate the 30 to 60 degree angles hills bathed in sun facing the beautiful Rhône River.

Later drive through Condrieu, birth town of Viognier grape which produces the world famous Cotes du Rhone white wine. The group will get to know its unique story, how this grape varietal almost died a few years ago.
