Ardèche gîte and guesthouse owners are happy to share their passionate interest in wine-growing. Each in their own way they will help guests find out more about their activities: tour of wine cellar or vineyard, description of different grape varieties and tasks involved in wine-growing, helping with the grape harvest for some, sampling the wine (in moderation, of course).
The Vignobles & Découvertes label was launched in 2009. It aims to promote wine tourism. The label is awarded for 3 years by the Tourism and Agriculture Ministries, after recommendation by the Conseil Supérieur de lOenotourisme (president Paul Dubrule) to destinations which combine tourism with wine-growing and offer a number of complementary tourist facilities (accommodation, restaurants, wine cellar tours with tasting, museum, special events, ), enabling clients to organise their holiday easily and to enjoy good quality services provided by skilled personnel.
