FHS is excited to present this year’s Chairman’s Circle trip to the Côtes du Rhône. Our six-night trip will begin in the dramatic ancient city of Avignon, which is renowned for its majestic Palais des Papes, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We will explore the splendid Provencal landscapes and monuments in the surrounding area, including the gorgeous 12th-centuy Romanesque Abbaye de Sénanques, and Gordes, renowned as one of the most beautiful villages of France. We will be hosted in style at individual homes for private receptions in Avignon and Gordes. 

As we make our way north, we will also discover the richness of the region’s Gallo-Roman ruins, in Orange, home to France’s finest ancient theater, built under the reign of Augustus in the 1st century BC, and the neighborhood of Fourvière in Lyon, where the trip concludes. We will also visit the Hôtel-Dieu, an FHS Grant recipient, and the Cathedral Saint-Jean, accompanied by Didier Repellin, Architect in Chief Of Historical Monuments. In addition, we will have the privilege of visiting the family-owned Château de Septème, a 2019 FHS Grant recipient which once belonged to Adrienne de Noailles, the Marquis de Lafayette’s wife.

Our journey will also take us to the region’s most prestigious wine estates from Châteauneuf du Pape, to Château de La Chaize in Beaujolais and Côtes Rôties, and to exceptional culinary institutions, including la Mirande in Avignon, Paul Bocuse in Collonges-au-Mont-d’Or, and charming, local “bouchons lyonnais”.
