WEEKEND – WINE ROAD – THE WINEYARD AROUND MARSEILLE – 3 DAYS

DAY 1: MARSEILLE – CULTURE DAY

 

1-MONUMENT-AUX-MORTS-MARSEILLE-PROVENCE-FRENCH-RIVIERA-TOURISM
Marseille was founded in 600 BC by Greek sailors of Phocaea, it is the oldest large French city, the most complex and the most endearing.
Marseille is a cosmopolitan city with an accent, a picturesque Old Port, bouillabaisse and popular folklore. We help the visitor to discover the real Marseille.

 The 24 hour City Pass allows you  to discover the city of contrasts with its old districts (Le Panier near the old port), the abbey of St Victor and surrounding neighbourhood, Notre Dame de la Garde (little blue train), patron saint of sailors is enthroned at 162m above sea and watches over the city : Your City Pass gives unlimited and free access to the entire public transport network in Marseille (Tram, Bus, Metro), the boat to the Chateau d’If , and its legend of the Count of Monte Cristo , the little train to Notre Dame de la Garde, entrances to museums and many discounts …

To discover the true baroque beauty of Marseille, do not hesitate to leave the heart of the city, to discover each neighbourhood (there are over 100). Each neighbourhood is a small Provencal village with a church, trees, bowling … plots and stalls of flowers or fruits and vegetables (the most famous are Cart, Square Lenche, the Vallon des Auffes, Our Lady of Mount with his Cours Julien, the Goudes …).

To alternate visits using your city pass, you can go to the Estaque and walk in the footsteps of Cézanne who lived there for 2 years with other painters friends Dufy and Braque (walking tour) without forgetting to taste a “fregi fuss ”among Magali …

Marseille has an accent that sings, a marine breath of fresh air with a “Mistrale” Sky, exceptional deep blue transparent coves with turquoise blue waters, white coves with trees overlooking the sea in the Cassis Creeks. Many small fishing ports are hidden around the city which are spread along the coast and on the sea side Niolon the Vesse, Figueres, Mejean, Carry Le Rouet and its famous Oursinades weekend of the month in January and February and in Sausset les Pins ….. Not forgetting the summer Sardinades in Martigues

Free lunch at your discretion (restaurants selection in travel notes)

Dinner at L’Estaque in a typical restaurant with the accent

Accommodation in Marseille depending on the option 3 or 4 ****


DAY 2: MARSEILLE – CASSIS – BANDOL – DISCOVERY  BANDOL WINES

The Bandol Appellation

Bandol has the top three colours of Provence. Between Marseille and Toulon, the vineyards of Bandol is not just limited to the success of rosé de Provence. The best winemakers have tamed the Mourvedre grape that produces red wine.

Morning: Field of The Christian, Saint Cyr / mer

“A small area animated by a great passion: which always produces good wines. Led by a winemaker atypical as well as endearing, this area Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer produces good and true Bandol wine.  The treasure is however perhaps also in the vineyard which admits as much character as its creator. It is a wine of a great variety. His name? The Indomitable. What a program …”

Discovery of the area: a guided tour (in French or English) of our cellars (winery, aging cellars, bottling …) and tasting of 5 wines production.

Afternoon:

Visit the Wine House in Bandol:

What you should know!

Red wine:

The Bandol, resolutely red comes mainly from the Mourvèdre grapes which are a variety which dominate the appellation. Pillar of the assembly (minimum 50% up to 95%), it is harmoniously combined at the discretion of each winemaker with Grenache and Cinsault, one bringing the generosity, the other finesse. Powerful, racy, and of great character, red Bandol is combined with the plural Mourvèdre thread. The red of Bandol expressed its true nature: on a mineral substance which may flourish accents of the beautiful Havana, in leather, under-wood, and the more complex notes yet, with the subtlety of each vintage. High in the cask wood during a minimum period of 18 months, the temperament of the tannic Mourvedre will reveal a complex design, ample and elegant. Wine of custody by excellence, it is also appreciated young in its power and its generosity; it is quite the paradox of the Bandol red. At each stage of its evolution, it issued a share of its immense potential. A Bandol from 10, 20 or 25 years, provides, for those who wait, all its enchantments!!

White wine:

Unlocking the secrets of Bandol is also about discovering the white. Winemakers take pleasure in surprising in this colour, discreet by the volume product. Clairette, Ugni Blanc and Bourboulenc form the basis of the plantings.

Made from vines often exposed to the North, quickened by marine inputs that exacerbate its freshness, white Bandol reveals a sharp attack giving way to a complex aromatic harmony (white flowers, citrus and exotic fruit orchard …).

Rosé wine:

Bandol Rosé will put you under its spell, with their roundness and generosity which cultivate their differences. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault given by direct pressing, a structured and elegant wine with a delicately pale salmon colour. Dressed in their subtle nuances, they express pleasure with the character of their terroir. They are drunk young and impress with their cool; the presence of Mourvèdre however exalted their typicality and encourages custody, as is traditional for red. They then have a temperament and exceptional flavours that are favourable on tables. Wine passion, complexity allows a wide range of food and wine associations

Tasting of 3 wines of Bandol

Free lunch (restaurant selection in travel notes)

Dinner Bouillabaisse in Marseille
