Description

Meet your private, experienced wine expert at the entrance of this local winery and let them tell you all about the secrets to making great tasting wine.

We have designed a family-friendly tour, where children will learn just as much as adults about how the grapes are grown and how wine is made. Only the tasting part at the end will differ, as children will not taste any wine (juices will be served)!

The private tour starts with the visit of the vineyards located on top of a cliff. Depending on the season, you will understand how the grapes get their color and taste depending on the sun and the type of ground they grew in.

Then, make your way into the unique wine cellar dug directly inside a cliff (troglodyte cave). This is where you and your children will listen to information on the fermentation barrels and understand the different stages of the wine making process. You will even see fossils dating back from millions of years ago.

The wine tasting part comes last, and for younger children, grape or apple juice is available. Snacks made from local delicatessens such as goat cheese and cured meats are also offered.

At the end of the tour, each adult will be offered a bottle of their choice.

FAQ's

Is this tour private?
Yes, it is. No one else will be participating in this visit, although you might see other people visiting the winery at the same time (very rare).
How can I get there?
The best way is by car. If you want us to handle the transfer from your hotel to the winery and back, please let us know.
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Children of all ages are welcome to visit this winery, but children under the age of 18 (the legal drinking age in France) will not be tasting any wine. Through this experiential visit, everyone will understand how wine is made. Young kids will be given crayons and paper, so they can remain active while the parents taste the wine.
Will my teenage kids like this activity?
It is always very interesting to see a winery, and the teens will enjoy this unique visit. And if they are 18 or older, they will even be able to drink some wine.
