This was our favourite part of our Saint-Emilion visit. Arnaud and Florence were so welcoming, fun and informative. Arnaud is a real character and they make fabulous wine!

We were greeted by the wife of the proprietor who is a trained sommelier and who spoke English well. The winery was very clean and elegant in an understated way. The visit included a tour and a video that explained the whole process, from pruning the vines at the end of a harvest through the bottling of the next harvest.... More

We were greeted by the owner then he wished away one of our gals into the winery. Following, we (8 of us) entered to a small winery with an owner with a wonderful sence of humor. He ezplained his wine and also did card tricks and magic....not to be missed!

By far the most fun and enjoyable wine tour I've ever experienced. And their video is also one of the most genuinely educational on wine making start to finish. Finally, it was the best tasting wine of the trip.
