  • We’re asked to wait, then asked to wait, then asked to wait. Then we waited a bit more. If you’re a glutton for punishment and enjoy being lied to very completely, then definitely visit this place...

  • A beautiful chateau & Gardens , plenty to see in the castle which inspired the fairytale of ‘sleeping beauty’. The tale of sleeping beauty is told in the round tower . The gardens were full of colour....  more

  • We dropped in unannounced after a scheduling mix-up with another winery and had a great tasting. Got to try through the lineup, she opened some older vintages and overall great experience with wines that we dont get in our market. Thank you for accommodating last minute!
  • We drove out during regular business hours, and arrived as they were starting up a group. They asked us to wait 15 minutes. After that they asked us to take a self guided tour for another 30 minutes. We did that too. Then we waited another 20 minutes to speak for just one minute to the girl who kept us waiting three times. She couldn’t be bothered. I lived in Paris for ten years and am fluent in French. Very fluent. If you like being punished and lied to for hours, definitely go to this place. I’d suggest not even dreaming of a visit without a prior WRITTEN reservation, which is not mentioned anywhere on their brochures or website. I’m not even sure that would help, but I like to give the benefit of the doubt. Epic fail.
  • A really interesting and informative tour and a good tasting afterwards in which we learned a lot from the growing and tasting process. The only negatives are the wine itself. We liked a rose but only the most expensive red we tried was any good.
  • We recently hosted a group wine tasting at Chateau de la Grille and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the tasting and the beautiful, sleek, modern space.
  • Superb Castle, a pleasant surprise at the turning of the roads of our trip, what a beautiful castle which does not benefit from the indications of the tourist guides ... It is however magnificent, it is about a vineyard domain. Do not hesitate to go for a ride, next time we will taste!
