Immerse yourself in the landscape, cuisine and celebrations of fall’s grape harvest by setting out for these flourishing wine regions and some of their most inviting wine-focused hotels.
Domaine de Manville, Provence
With as many as nine different wine appellations, this is a region that’s noted for the diversity of its wine as well as the beauty of its landscape. By coming to Provence in September and October, you’ll see the region when both the olive and grape harvest are in full swing. Base yourself at the Provencal farming estate Domaine de Manville to set out on a cycling tour of the 12 surrounding wineries and mills producing olive oil with the Vallée des Baux de Provence AOC designation, then complete your stay by visiting the daily farmer’s market with the hotel’s Michelin-starred chef Matthieu Dupuis Baumal and seeing the purple saffron that blooms here at this time of year. If you’re here on the third Thursday of the month, try the chef’s special Winemakers Menu.
