Chateauneuf-du-Pape - Tavel - Gigondas, Wine Tasting Sept 2014

I'm staying 4 nights in Avignon and 3 in Gigondas. Touring Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Tavel is top of list, but I'm having a hard time finding a guide that will do both in one-day. I don't need to go to many places, I just one one or two of the best. I've received one quote for 700 EU /day, which I find quite expensive. I would rather eat in a 3-star restaurant for that rate.

In addition, I understand September is a challenge as it's harvest and many wineries don't accommodate visitors ( Chateau de Beaucastel in which I'm a member of their sister winery in California said they're closed).

Any recommendations on where to go? A possible tour guide? I don't mind small groups.

Part two: I'll picking up a car in Avignon for my continuation to Gigondas and plan on touring as much as I can in that area. We're staying at Les Chambres de l'Oustalet. If there is something I shouldn't miss in that area I would love to hear from you.

Merci beaucoup!
