France has long enjoyed its worldwide recognition for fabulous cuisine, but the wine and food of the South has rightly earned a reputation of its own. Whether you’re dining in style at Ducasse or heading to the hills for a casual lunch at an out-of-the-way brasserie, every season of the year offers special delights.

Feast on towering seafood platters at a legendary café in the heart of Nice’s old town, savoring a glass of Château Roubine rosé, or enjoy a traditional bouillabaisse on the port in Marseille, accompanied by a crisp white wine from nearby Cassis. Head to Opio and Grasse to sample some of the region’s finest olives and olive oils at family-run mills, or take a guided tour through a private olive grove, followed by a delectable Provençale lunch prepared by the proprietor, an English Lady, and served on the estate’s sea-facing terrace.

Discover the magic of Côte de Provence rosés on a wine route from Nice to Saint-Tropez, stopping for private tastings at Châteaux along the way, or treat yourself to an exclusive tasting in a private villa, hosted by a Master of Wine. Join a professional chef for a walking tour of Nice’s Marché Provençale, followed by a hands-on cooking class and lunch. Or spend a leisurely Sunday morning browsing through Antibes’ open-air market, sampling fresh goat cheeses, spicy saucissons, and delicate macarons before stopping at a local café for an aperitif, accompanied by oysters or a slice of socca, the traditional chickpea “crêpe”.

Tailored to your personal tastes and timetable, our Riviera Wine and Gastronomy experience is designed to introduce you to all the wonderful sun-drenched flavors of the Côte d’Azur.

  • Market visits in Nice and Antibes
  • Optional hands-on cooking classes
