First, discover a traditional winery with an authentic cellar and typical architecture of Saint-Emilion, producing a traditional style of wine for the region. The second winery is a forward-looking one with modern cellar. Discover how the winemakers use new technology and viticulture techniques to perfect the wine making process and produce a different, innovate style of wine. Learn all about the vines, the varietals, and the ageing process. After touring the wineries, visit the Cellar Master’s space and learn how to use your senses to identify a wine.

    Super moment passé dans ce domaine ! Une visite guidée des plus enrichissante grâce à une guide plus que professionnelle et sympathique, un cadre magnifique à la fois traditionnelle et moderne , un décor à couper le souffle.. la dégustation d’au moins 6 vins dont deux en général pour comparer étaient très intéressantes elle aussi ! Les 2h sont passées très vite et le plaisir était au rendez vous ! Un grand merci à eux.
