When people talk about Avignon, you immediately think of the Palace of the Popes!, the famous bridge spanning the Rhône and the celebrated festival – but we shouldn’t forget that Avignon is also a mecca for wine growing.

Avignon is a real gateway to the Côtes du Rhône vineyards, and plays host to  numerous AOC-themed activities throughout the year.


The programme of festive, cultural and fun activities – always a foodie’s delight – encourages tourists and locals alike to get acquainted with the region’s wines and meet the winemakers who produce them.


Let yourself be charmed by Avignon, its history and vineyards. You’ll undoubtedly return home from your stay in the capital of the Côtes du Rhône “as happy as a pope”, as the French like to say!
