Set off from Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Nice or Monaco in a private helicopter for an exclusive wine tasting experience in the arrière-pays.
Begin your day at the beautiful Château de Berne in Lorgues, a 600-hectare estate with 80 hectares devoted exclusively to vineyards. Enjoy a tour and tasting of the Château’s remarkable Côte de Provence wines, harvested from Provençal varieties including Semillon and Rolle for the whites and Cinsault, Grenache, and Mourvedre for the reds and rosés. Optionally, take time for a hands-on cooking class or lunch prepared under the masterful direction of the estate’s Michelin-starred chef or, for the ultimate gourmet indulgence, follow the wine tasting with an extraordinary all-truffle tasting menu at the legendary Chez Bruno.
Accompanied by your licensed driver/guide, continue your wine tasting experience at nearby vineyards including Château Roubine, Domaines Ott Château de Selle, one of the most famous names in the Côte de Provence region, or at the highly-respected and relatively new Château de Rasque, just a stone’s throw away in Taradeau.
For a day that combines spectacular scenery with fine wine and dining, head directly to the Verdon Gorges for a birds-eye tour over its breathtaking canyons and turquoise waterways, and—depending on the season—the beautiful amethyst fields of the Valensole lavender plains. Touch down near the charming village of Moustiers-Saint-Marie, famous for its lovely faïence pottery, to relax over a gourmet picnic by the riverside or feast a gastronomic lunch at the Bastide de Moustiers featuring Beauregard lamb, Banon cheese, Riez truffles, Cavaillon melons and other local delicacies.
