Overview

From the very best Rose wines in the world to fabulous Red wines using the exclusive Mourvedre grape, and some bright refreshing White wines, the vineyards of the AOC Bandol have so much to offer both the newcomer to the world of wine and the serious connoisseur. We will be delighted to show you these and our particular part of Paradise here in the South of France with Bandol Wine Tours, picking you up straight from your Hotel or your Cruise ship. Riviera Wine Tours offer the same with the AOC Provence around the glamorous St Tropez, and the grand AOC of Bellet near Nice. We also offer guided tours of the entire region, showing the lovely and stylish Monaco, Antibes and Cannes etc to your order.

Excellent host. Amazing wine. Visiting wineries on a personal level with Richard made all the difference. Going to a winery that doesn't allow large groups was very special. Lunch could not have been any better, food and view. Don't miss this experience

Hi, this full day tour starts at 9.30-9.45 at the dock in Bandol where your ship's tenders come in. Bandol is too little a port to take your ship so you all come in on the ship's tenders. This is right in the centre of town... More
