While the wine tour and tasting is pretty much the same as what you might find at any winery, what makes this tour special is where they store their wine. A must see.

Cave tour- great. It's the only reason it's worth going ( for me). commercialised and a lot of tourist, large bus traffic. The person who facilitated the wine tasting learned her lines but wasn't particularly informed about the soil, undertones etc. For me, preferred Ixsir...More

Do not miss seeing the cave that dates back to Roman days. Try their best wine Le Souverain, it's awesome. Enjoy a meal, and relax in a cozy setting.

This is the dullest vineyard visit I've been on to date. All you see is a quick walk around the cellars/caves with barrels in, and a short wine tasting. No vines to visit and no wine making tour or talk. A passable way to spend...More
