Welcome to the Untours cafe, Sheila. I know you will love your Provence Untour and the wine growing region there. I, too, have an interest in wine and my daughter and I devoted part of our stay in Provence to finding wonderful dry rose wine. We enjoyed limiting ourselves to one varietal and learned alot.
Even though Frank and I have not been to Provence yet, I know you will love it. We have had 13 French Exchange students from Aix en Provence over the years and Have some dear freinds who live there. One of these days we will do that Untour too. Last June we did the Paris Untour. We found the French to be very hospitable. I do not speak French but would try a few words with a smile and they always responded well to it. I understand that Provence area is very beautiful. June should be a great month to go there.
My daughter was invited to go with me because she speaks some French. It was a huge help! You will never regret whatever time you spend learning the language - that and a smile can really open doors for you. Some of our favorite day trips were to Cassis, sampling the rose' in Gigondas, a panoramic lunch in Crestet and our most memorable meal in Chateauneuf des Pape. The aged goat cheese is like nothing I have had in the US - I would go back for that alone! Is your mouth watering yet?
My husband Clark and I will be at the Oasis property at the same time. You will love the Untours experience. I really look forward to meeting you and we will have to share a bottle of wine some evening.
