  • The tour was fantastic, especially getting to sit and talk with Sebastian about his family's history with the winery. The tour is given by Sebastian's wife (whose name I sadly can't recall) is a native English speaker from Canada and did a great job explaining their process. The wines (both white and red) were fun to taste, and quite reasonably priced (about $10 to $20 a bottle). The food served with the tour was a delightful assortment of local meats and cheeses along with fresh bread making for a top notch picnic.
  • Sebastian (owner) was fantastic and the wine was delicious. Had a brilliant day out, so much history to this vineyard. Definitely want to go back one day!
  • Wonderful winery tour experience. Highly recommend the friendly and informative tour and tasting! Just what you want from a winery tour in France.
  • Beautiful place with great wine. We came for a picnic and a tour. I highly recommend visiting.
  • Outstanding, intimate tour on a beautiful hillside vineyard of award-winning wine. The 30 minute tour with owner and winemaker Sebastian was followed by a wine tasting of about about 7 different wines (mostly reds), as well as a picnic lunch (we paid for the Picnic experience). The food was served in their Renaissance-era indoor stables because it was so hot out, which slightly took away from the "picnic" experience, but the food was plentiful, wine was delicious and company was interesting and top-notch. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Sebastian stateside!
