The last weekend of January, on Saturday, an unforgettable adventure awaited us at Château de Crémat in Nice. A bike tour followed by a wine tasting in a prestigious setting promised a memorable day. With an easy 30 km route and 300 m of elevation gain, our international group of 5 people + 1 (including Diana, our non-cyclist companion) was ready to experience unique moments. Let us take you on this enchanting escapade, where cycling, wine, and conviviality merged to create memories that will stay etched in our hearts!

A Diverse Group

Our group was a true melting pot of cultures, languages, and personalities. We were five cycling enthusiasts, hailing from different parts of the world, bound by our love for nature and cycling adventures. We also had the pleasure of welcoming Diana, a curious and enthusiastic friend who, though not a cyclist, was excited to join us for the wine tasting. This diversity created a friendly and enriching atmosphere from the start, where exchanges and laughter set the tone for our upcoming day.

Early Departure: On the Road to the Excursion

Early in the morning, we gathered at Café du Cycliste at the Port of Nice, where we began our ride, excited for the adventure that awaited us.

The sun was slowly rising, casting a golden glow on the castle and surrounding vineyards, creating an enchanting atmosphere for our departure.

The Bike Tour: Discovering Picturesque Landscapes

Our 30 km route offered us a varied panorama of the beauty of Nice. From verdant hills to picturesque villages and winding paths, each pedal stroke was a revelation.

We took the time to savor each moment, immortalizing the spectacular landscapes with our cameras and sharing knowing smiles when the challenges of the climbs brought us even closer together.

Encounters and Sharing: United by the Passion for Cycling

On our journey, we encountered other cyclists and locals, all equally welcoming and friendly. Cycling is a mode of transportation that fosters connections, and we made the most of it. Greetings exchanged in different languages, sharing anecdotes about the best bike routes, and mutual encouragement strengthened the sense of camaraderie between our international group and those we met along the way.

Château de Crémat: Wine Stage

After a morning of cycling, we arrived at Château de Crémat for the second part of our day. The majestic and historically rich castle provided the perfect setting for an unforgettable wine tasting. We were warmly welcomed by the château’s team, who guided us through the vineyards and the wine-making process, immersing us in the secrets of creating Crémat’s prestigious wines.

The wine tasting was a sensory experience, where enchanting aromas and delicate flavors delighted our palates. Diana, our non-cyclist companion, was pleasantly surprised to discover the nuances of different grape varieties and to savor these divine nectars in such an enchanting setting.

Conviviality and Celebrations: A Glass in Hand

The wine tasting provided the perfect opportunity to extend the shared moments and celebrate our cycling adventure together. Around a well-laden table, we toasted to our success, the stunning landscapes we had discovered, and the new friendships we had forged. Laughter and smiles were contagious, and we were grateful for this day rich in emotions and unique experiences.
