Answer from Carole from OphorusBonjour samejima, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy tasting the Provence wine of the first Chateau visited, they probably wanted to offer you this extra glass of wine to show you what they offer outside of Medoc area. However, we are pleased to read that your second visit was excellent. It is always a pleasure to know that our clients learned a lot during their tour. We sincerely hope having you back on tour very soon. Best, Carole from Ophorus team
