Wind your way around the hills with your driver-guide and wine lover, who will introduce you to a rich and varied wine-making region. This complete programme is designed especially for those who want to discover wine and learn about oenology.
You will start with an introduction to wine-making with a tour of the oenosensorial circuit at Château de Pizay. This extremely beautiful estate that offers premium services invites you to discover the culture of wine-making. Increase your knowledge of wine and understand the general notion of “terroir” in order to fully comprehend the treasures of this wine-making heritage. Fun and educational, this interactive itinerary offers you the chance to obtain your first amateur wine expert diploma! The visit then ends 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.
After this, you will take the wine route and continue your itinerary through the vineyards. You will be able to admire the variety of landscapes that constitute the treasures of this region. Your guide will explain why this region produces so many famous wines.
