Visitors can enjoy a tour of the winery and the vineyards and learn about Biodynamic and Organic farming, the different terroirs present at Chambert and how they effect the grapes and the final wine. During a visit of the cellar the fermentation and maturation process will be explained before a tasting of the complete range of Chambert wines.
