Incentive gastronomy and oenology seminar

Gastronomy and oenology, the Provence-Riviera region is the standard bearer for these jewels in the crown of French culture. From the gourmet restaurants of the Riviera coast to the renowned tables of the hinterland, from the castles of the Côtes du Rhône to the vineyards of the Côtes de Provence, chefs and castle owners wait to share their passion with you, educate your taste buds and help you to discover their secrets and specialities. Longitude 7, a Destination Management Company located in the region will lend its expertise in the bespoke organisation of your incentive event and will incorporate Provencal cookery, an introduction to wine tasting and visits to vineyards into it.

5 good reasons for organising a gastronomy and oenology seminar in the Provence-Alps-Riviera region

  • Creating original recipes as a team, then a convivial tasting of the dishes created together are excellent team building activities

  • Learning about gastronomy and wine combines perfectly with other sporting, fun or cultural activities in the Provence-Alps-Riviera region
