Southern France Winery and Vineyard Tour

WSU Viticulture & Enology Program Director Thomas Henick-Kling, VE student alumni, and other wine professionals traveled on a 12-day educational tour that began in the beautiful and historic city of Aix-en-Provence. From there, they traveled to wineries and vineyards in some of the most celebrated wine regions of Provence and the Southern Rhone Valley, including Chateauneuf du Pape, Bandol, and Hermitage, where they went behind the scenes with the winemakers and grape growers. They also strolled through the medieval villages of Avignon and Arles, and visited the exciting coastal towns of Marseille and Monaco.

The tour was not only educational, but rich with culture, wonderful food and wine, and many memorable experiences.
