Who are we?

Azur Wine Tours is a small company whose aim is to help visitors of the French Riviera discover the wines of Provence, while enjoying the picture postcard scenery.

Erwan, our guide, is totally found of wine !

In Erwan’s family, there is wine – a domaine Champagne several generations back (which he never got to enjoy!). Burgundy – his family name is that of a village located near Chablis. And the Berry and Sancerrois, where part of his family roots are.

When he talks about wine, Erwan speaks from the heart. It has been a passion of his for years – Burgundy’s reds and their infinite elegance, the Côtes du Rhône, for their power and spices, and of course, Provence. Because Provence wine is fresh, full-bodied and supple. And it offers so much variety, that one could never get bored.

Having organised several events in the wine world (in particular, for the Côtes de Provence and the Maîtres Vignerons of Saint-Tropez), Erwan noticed a growing worldwide enthusiasm for the wines of Provence, especially for the famous Rosé. So he decided to creat his own wine tour company !

Douby, our guide also ! is just like a good Provence wine. She is the perfect assemblage! She’s the best of several cultures. Born in Croatia and brought up in Dubrovnik, Douby fell in love with a Frenchman after completing high school, and followed him…to Burgundy! There, she studied oenology. Upon graduation, she joined a big estate in Burgundy. She worked her way up the ladder and eventually became head of production. She therefore vinified the biggest appellations in Burgundy, Premiers and Grands Crus for 30 years.

Today, Douby is keen to live her passion for wine by sharing it in a friendly setting. To her, wine is a feast. A feast for the senses and a feast of connection!

And Paul ! His uncle is the famous Yves Canarelli, owner of the Clos Canarelli in Figuari. Paul spent his childhood in between Provence and Corsica.

A lifelong wine enthusiast, Paul worked as a sommelier in several prestigious restaurants around the world: in the United States, Bermuda, Brazil, as well as in London’s famous Mirabelle restaurant.

On returning to France, he managed the restaurant and cellar of the Abbaye des Capucins in Montauban, where he also organised the Wine and Business Club, much to his delight.

Presentation of some of our partners:


This winery has been in the family for generations. Over looking the bay of Frejus, the Chateau produces a whole number of great wines including a Côtes de Provence Fréjus. It is a great place to learn about the importance of terroir!


The Domaine du Jas D'esclans was one of the first certified organic vineyards in Provence. The philosophy of sustainable wine making is not limited to the vines but is applied to every aspect of the winery. For those looking for great quality organic wines, look no further.


The Domaine du Dragon : a pretty unique terroir with a pretty unique history. This has to be the only vineyard I know of that used to be home to a Dragon. Unfortunately the Dragon has gone but the vines remain, producing excellent whites, rosés and reds.


Château de Saint Martin is one of the most historic wineries in the region. Winemaking has been taking place on the premises for over 2000 years and the vineyard has belonged to the same family since the beginning of the 18 century! One of the Cru Classé wineries of the Provence region, a try of their amazing wines is a must-do!
