We Are Off To The Rhone Valley in 2022!

This year The WineSellar & Brasserie has chosen to revisit the amazing Rhone region of France.  We are calling this trip Private Rhone as we had a Rhone local expert help us with putting the tour together and so we have insider information!  

Arthur Defail, born and raised in the Rhone region.  You may have met him while in The WineSellar & Brasserie?  He’s the young man with the lovely French accent, great sense of humor, and is a Sommelier.  We feel very fortunate to be working with Arthur.  You also may have had the fortune to be at one of the special wine VIP tastings that Arthur has put together and lead?  Arthur helped us chose wineries and destinations and we are thrilled to offer this tour to you!

For those of you who haven’t been on our tours, they are different from many other tours in several ways.  One is that we listen and make them tailored to our guests who want a more intimate, special, and an upgraded experience all round.  Part of this is that we only take around ten to eighteen guests per tour, so each of our tour travelers get the best experience possible. 

We strive to make our wine tours the kind of trips that bring our new travelers coming back, as with our previous tour travelers, year after year!

~ Gary & I invite you to join us for our 2022 Private Rhone wine tour ~

pdfFirst Tour: April 19 - 29th, 2022

pdfSecond Tour: May 9 - 19th, 2022
