PROVENCE WINE TOURS.
Provence in the South of France is considered as the most beautiful place in France, and it stretches all the way from Arles and Avignon to Monaco, anchored by the Mediterranean sea. The region’s natural beauty, its warm climate, picturesque Medieval villages, traditional open markets, colors, aromas, olive oil, sun flowers, lavender fields and of course its wines make Provence an irresistible destination to both the French and to visitors.
What gives Provence its distinctive character and unique wines is, among other things, its particularly diverse landscape swept by the Mistral wind and its warm dry and sunny weather. Provence is more and more popular and recognized for its wines, especially about its rosé wines (some of the World’s best rosés) but it also produces some remarkable strong and full-bodied red wines which can age several years in barrels, as well as tender delicate and airy whites.
If you want to discover the wines and the beauty of Provence countryside in a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere with an English-speaking guide, then our private Provence wine tours are for you!
We offer several destinations to visit and taste wine in Provence such as Aix en Provence, Luberon, Baux de Provence, Bandol & Cassis and the world famous Châteauneuf du Pape.

I just returned from an excellent wine tour with Brice from Planet Provence. He picked myself and my parents up from our hotel and drove us to two excellent wine venues. The entire trip was very professional and he was happy to translate anything we didn’t understand and ask questions for us. He even pointed out highlights on the very comfortable journey to each venue. Highly recommended.
Our group of four mad Irish and this one American spent a week with Brice in early May. We experienced the beauty, the food, the wine, the history and the wonderful people of Provence, having great fun along the way. Gourmet restaurants, an electric bike ride around Sainte-Victorire Mountain (Cezanne’s favorite subject), a lesson buying food at local markets in Aix-en-Provence followed by our own cooking class with a great chef, exclusive visits to small, family owed wineries, farms, and most importantly, great conversations with wonderful, passionate producers. Brice opens doors for your experience you wouldn’t otherwise know exists. He organized great accommodations, he picked us up and effortlessly guided us each day with patience, flexibility and humor needed with four mad Irish. A trip to Provence couldn’t possibly have been organized better.
What a fabulous time we had with Brice. We were celebrating a friend’s 30th birthday – he took us on a private wine tour and even brought along surprise helium balloons! The car was very comfortable and his knowledge of the region and wines was fantastic. No request was too small. Communication prior to the tour was easy. The tour over ran by an hour, but Brice didn’t mind and dropped us straight at dinner. We laughed all day! What a great way to see the region. I’d highly recommend this tour. We’ll be back!
It was a great experience, I speak french but my parents do not so it was great that he spoke english so well. He had a vast amount of knowledge and it was really nice to learn about the wine that we were tasting. A great experience and I completely recommend doing this! Great for everyone in the family, as long as they can taste the wine!
My wife and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary in France and one of the highlights was our personal wine and olive oil tour with Brice and Planet Provence. Absolutely outstanding service and personal touch made this a Must Do! Brice had extensive knowledge of the region, the wineries, the grapes, and most importantly the Best Rosé! We were greeted by Brice at our Hotel Villa Gallaci and chauffeured by luxury private car to Mas De Cadenet, Chateau Saint-Hilaire and Moulin de Coudoux where we experienced fine wines and fresh olive oil with private personal tours guiding us through the entire process of start to finish with a tasting of the best each had to offer!
