    We’ve just come back from the tour and picnic which we really enjoyed and would recommend. The tour is around an hour and a good introduction for beginners. The wine tasting and picnic were great. The guide spoke good English and was very helpful. The facilities were very clean as well.

    Très bonne activité qui nous a permis d’en connaitre un peu plus sur le vin et une guide au top sachant répondre à toutes nos questions. Également la fin, avec le pique nique accompagné et d’un bon vin comme touche finale avec la vue sur le vignoble, c’était parfait !
