On Saturday June 8th, a group of Monaco MBA students decided to take a well deserved mini-break from studying, preparing for final exams, and putting the final touches on their various Corporate Projects.

Instead, leaving at 8AM, they went on a wine tasting trip in the Var region, home to some of the finest AOC Cote de Provence wines in the world.  The first stop was the Chateau de la Roseline, where students tasted the reds, whites and roses, and then visited the beautifully restored 11th century monastery on the property.

They then set off to the Chateau de Berne, set in over 100 hectares of woodland and vineyards.  The MBA students following the Luxury career track were particularly impressed by the magnificent five star hotel, restaurant and spa affiliated with the Chateau de Berne.

After a typical Provencal lunch accompanied by still more wine, the students spent the remainder of the day in lovely St. Tropez, where they could sightsee, people watch, and do some shopping.  By 8PM, they were back in Monaco, to hit the books once again.
