Increase your knowledge of wine and understand the general notion of “terroir” in order to fully comprehend the treasures of this wine-making heritage.

Get the chance to obtain your first amateur wine expert diploma! End the visit at the wine shop which presents all the estate’s wines. You will be able to taste twelve wines from the estate, both reds, and whites.

Take the wine route and continue the itinerary through the vineyards. Admire the variety of landscapes that constitute the treasures of this region. Your guide will explain to you why this region produces so many famous wines.

Then, go and meet a wine-maker who will present his estate and wine production. Another opportunity to taste five high-quality wines will again allow you to test what you learned about wine in the morning.

Getting out of the city to see the countryside & vineyards was beautiful. The 1st tasting is Chateau de Pizay was very good. We learned a lot about wine & tasting and we could take our time. I know a this wasn’t a food tour, but perhaps some crackers would be nice to go with the wine & cleanse the palette between tastings. Francois was a very knowledgeable guide & explained a log of things to us.
