Great hospitality and friendly visit to tast a smal winery with a great wine
By Rob for Grand Cru Classé - 3 wines 13 days ago 5
Tourguide Louise speaks excellent well understandable English and provides an excellent informative tour of the 7 acres wine property. The winery distinguishes itself by having three different types of ground on the 7 acres. Second wine small piece at the enterance is on sand and the remains Merlot grapes grow on either clay ground or lime-stone. Louise happily answered all our questions to provide a deeper insight into the winery business and production. Chateau Franc Mayne tour provides an excellent opportunity to visit a smaller winery versus the well known slick tours of the bigger wine houses. I warmly recommend it. Especially with the three tastings.
Ravi de la visite

Une exploitation à taille humaine, une guide exceptionnelle qui a su répondre à toutes nos nombreuses questions, des anecdotes tout au long du parcours pour nous faire comprendre le travail dans la propriété, une très bonne connaissance de Saint-Émilion et une dégustation guidée pour nous révéler toutes les subtilités des vins de Franc Mayne. N'hésitez pas !
