Tour and tasting : From harvest to glass

Vins Marquis de Montmelas, Montmelas Saint Sorlin, Beaujolais

4.9/5 18 ratings

Detailed description

You will discover the Grand Cuvage, built in 1842, located in the hamlet below the Château. This old building, with its diamond-shaped frame, houses the vinification vats as well as an old press with a squirrel cage. It is here that we will share with you our know-how in making our wines.

At the end of this visit, you will taste 3 of our wines with an emphasis on the old vintages which are our pride and joy.
This tasting will reveal the different facets of the king grape variety in Beaujolais, the Gamay, but also the rare pearl of the region, the Chardonnay.

Une superbe après-midi entre amis
By Frank for De la récolte au verre a month ago 5
Une visite agréable et instructive. Delphine nous a offert une visite instructive de son exploitation mêlant tradition et modernité. Le pressoir a écureuil a fait son effet tout comme la charpente en pointe de diamant.
Excellent moment !
By Cléo for De la récolte au verre a month ago 5
Visite très agréable et instructive. Un accueil très chaleureux et conviviale. Les explications donnés étaient très claires et adaptées au public. Nous avons passé un excellent moment entre amis. Nous recommandons sans hesitation.
Superbe visite !
By Sabine for De la récolte au verre a month ago 5
L'accueil que nous a réservé Delphine d'Harcourt a été particulièrement agréable: la maîtresse des lieux s'est montrée souriante, dynamique et heureuse de partager l'histoire des lieux et expliquer la vie de vignerons. Nous n'étions que 2 (novices de surcroît) et pourtant elle a vraiment pris le temps. Bref une belle découverte et un bon moment partagé !
Fascinating introduction to Beaujolais
By Barbara for From harvest to glass a month ago 4.3
The winemakers wife gave the tour. She is very knowledgeable and showed us great detail in the creation of their wine. Winemaking has been going on for centuries at the vineyard. I did think I was going to be on a tour at the beautiful chateau in the picture. This is not the case. It is private. The tour is onsite for the wine production facility. We did not visit a cellar. There is a fabulous and massive old wine press here. Truly worth seeing.
Visite très intéressante

Nous avons participé à une visite très intéressante. L’histoire de ce château est raconté avec passion. Les vins sont délicieux, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.
