_____________________________________________

This activity is for either those who are beginners and want to discover what is the winemaker profession, or for those who are informed amateurs and want to improve their knowledge.
The visit is personalized to answer at best to each need and questions.
During the walk through the vineyards, you will enjoy explanations about the Graves terroir, its history and the grape varieties of our appellation. We will bring you more specifics insights about the winemaker work in the vines of the period you are visiting us (for instance, the wine-pruning in winter).
In the cellars, we will present you the vinification processes and depending of your profile, we will be able to talk in more precise terms (chemistry - alcoholic fermentation, extraction of the tannins and aromas...). Then, we will go in the ageing cellars to show you the ageing process of our wines in barrels.
Last but not least, you will discover the wines of the winery through a commented tasting of 3 wines of the house, both white wine (Château Vénus) and red wines (Château Vénus and Apollon le Divin).

Nous avons eu la chance de faire la visite aux cotés du vigneron qui s'est montré tres pédagogue, à l'écoute et passionné ! Le résultat dans le verre s'en ressent !
Super accueil, belle visite et dégustation
By Frédéric for Le travail d'un vigneron des Graves a year ago 5
L'accueil, d'Emmanuelle et Bertrand était vraiment parfait. La visite des vignes et du chais, et la dégustation étaient très agréables avec en plus une très bonne cuvée Vénus. Une très belle surprise, je conseille vivement !!!
