3 stages for 1 festive evening!

You'll be talking wine, terroir, grape varieties, culture and pairings... all with passion and in three stages:

1. A walk in the vineyards

A walk through the heart of the estate's vineyards: the winemaker will tell you all about his work, the soils, the different grape varieties used and his crus. You'll enjoy and admire the remarkable views over the vineyards and the estate of your choice.

Tonneau de vin

2. Visit to the cellars

The tour continues with a visit to the estate's cellars, vinification vats and oak barrels, where you can learn more about the winemaking process, from the harvesting of the grapes to the production of the cuvées.

Verre de vin

3. Tasting and food and wine pairing

Time for a tasting! As the sun goes down, 3 glasses of wine from different grape varieties will be offered to match delicious local dishes. Your taste buds are sure to delight as you savour the red, white and rosé wines carefully produced by our winemakers.

Each winemaker will present his or her wines in harmony with the dishes prepared, allowing you to appreciate the quality of Luberon wines (AOC Luberon, Ventoux and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Gadagne).

At the end of the tasting, you'll have the chance to buy some wine to continue your experience.

6 themes for 13 meetings
