The local wine route
If you have the time and interest, a day of local vineyard touring and winetasting is a pleasure indeed.
A pleasure for lovers of the grape.
Gourmets and lovers of fine French wine will appreciate the opportunity while in Marseille to visit the very characteristic local vineyards of the Côte d'Azur and Provence. There are scores of local outfits that will bring you to the main vineyards to discover their secrets. If your time is limited, we'd suggest a day trip to Cassis and Bandol, which specialise in whites and reds, respectively. But if you have the time and the desire to delve more deeply into the region, there are tour packages which also include visits to local craft markets, cheesemaking, perfume making with locally produced lavender, and even a spa visit. You can choose your preferences and they'll set it all up for you.
