Riviera Vineyard Search

Hello all, I am looking to visit some vineyards on my honeymoon to France. I will be taking a car from Nice to St Tropez for a day and wanted to visit a vineyard along the way. The following day we will be driving to Monaco and I was hoping to find a vineyard around the western side of Liguria. I would not mind driving north to Cuneo if there were better vineyards around there.

Appreciate the help!

Alba in the Piemonte isn't far, all on highways.We enjoyed visiting Pietro Rinaldi outside of Alba.

There re plenty of vineyards around St Tropez. Head towards Chateau Minuty.

Château Minuty is trendy but not good.
My favorites are at la L'onde which makes it further.
I'd just pick one choosing from Michelin wine guide. A real référence since decades.

For Liguria between Genoa and the border, look for whites, pigato and vermentino. Look around Albenga; here are 3 possible places to visit:

The red Rossese wine of the Dolceacqua area is worth checking out
