Great Family Owned Vineyard for Tasting
By Patrick for Discovery of the winery a year ago 4
I really enjoyed getting to meet the proprietor of a vineyard during the tasting. Learning her process for assessing and making wines, made the tour really come to life. Moreover, seeing her decisions from using the harvesting machines through blending the wine was incredible. The wine was quite good. I especially appreciated the 2006 Chateau de Villegeorge.I highly recommend this stop, particularly if the couple is mostly touring the larger vineyards and would like to understand the family-owned, lower yield producers.

Une visite tres instructive tant sur le passé de la famille que sur les techniques de fabrication. Nous avons été absorbés par la passion de notre hôte oeunologue. Vraiment top pour échanger. Merci

Une très belle visite, claire et bien expliquée. Nous avons ainsi découvert en détails le travail de vigneron, et avons eu la chance de déguster plusieurs millésimes.

Une belle visite, intéressante et originale. Par contre, les vins du chateau n'étaient pas à notre gout
