If you are looking for a low-cost introduction to the deep-flavoured wines of the Northern Rhône, our Simply break is the package for you. Having settled in your twin or double room at the 3* Hotel les Amandiers on day one, enjoy an afternoon tour and tastings at a local winery in Tain l’Hermitage (located 20 minutes on foot from your hotel). Here, you will see first-hand the wine-making process from press to bottle!
On the morning of day two, after a leisurely breakfast, check out of the hotel. Take a short walk across the river to the quaint town of Tain l’Hérmitage, where you will be welcomed at the boutique of Paul Jaboulet Aîné, one of the biggest names in the Northern Rhône. This estate has been making highly sought-after wines for almost two Centuries and you will firstly taste a Hérmitage white, a Hérmitage red and a Cornas. A traditional three course lunch with a further two Jaboulet wines will then be served.
For those who would like to stay for two nights, both visits will be arranged on day two, giving you a free afternoon on day one and a free morning on day three. We strongly recommend taking a leisurely walk up Hérmitage Hill to admire the breathtaking views across the Rhône valley from “La Chapelle.”
Day Two (Optional)
