Overview
More
A beautiful family run vineyard which offers wine tastings and vineyard tours. The award winning wines on sale direct from the Chateau. The vineyard is in a beautiful part of Dordogne with small woods and streams surrounding the vineyards. Besides the wine many visitors like to enjoy the wild orchids, glimpses of deer and hares and the tranquil views from the shady picnic table.

The visit to the vineyard was conducted by the knowledgeable and enthusiastic Humphrey. It would have been better to conclude our tour here rather than at the impersonal cooperative. Still a lovely day out with a superb lunch too

Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed it. We do speak French but other than that we cannot claim to be fluent in anything else. However luckily the language of wine and wine tasting is pretty international and often needs few words"
