As the vines gradually lose their leaves and get ready to fall asleep until spring, the end of the year celebrations are fast approaching. And this year, certainly more than any other, the meaning that will be given to them will be to come together in the hope that we can even do so in a select committee, to congratulate ourselves for always being there thinking of those who will unfortunately leave us, to take care of each and every one of us so that 2021 offers us a better perspective, always uncertain but perhaps a new vision of things.

So what are our tips to change our mind for this end of the year? First of all if these festivities bring you to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez we would be delighted to take you on a private journey around the area and from an inside perspective : enjoy the almost virgin roads, virgin beaches of restaurant and bathers, and be welcomed at the many wine estates staying opened and ready to receive you, or at restaurants where to warm up by the fire with a good glass of red wine from Côtes de Provence.

We have reserved a few new items for you for this holiday season and we are pleased to share them with you:

Christmas wine shopping in the Golfe de Saint-Tropez:

You want to offer wine to your family, your friends but you don’t know which one or where to buy it? What if you buy live from the producer with our help? Give and do yourself a treat! We organize a morning or afternoon shopping in the wineries of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez!

Taste before buying!

Let us lead you where your tastes tell us to go. No cellar visit, we will taste the wines that should suit you and you can if you wish to buy them (no commitment of course) to offer to your friends, your family or to receive your guests at Christmas. We take care to select for you the best domains related to your tastes and transport you from one domain to another. We can also deliver you or take care of shipping your wines. 😊
