Oenology courses with the "Ateliers au Château"
To fully understand the world of wine!
Be welcomed to the château by a wine professional! Take a few steps with her in the vineyards, in organic agriculture, to discover the terroirs & cult grape varieties of Bordeaux and the work of the winegrower in relation to the respect of the environment.Visit the cellars with the oenologist!
First, the vinification cellar, when the grapes arrive at harvest time. Take the opportunity to taste our organic grape juice! In the middle of the stainless steel vats, we will tell you about the fermentations, the pressing, the wine-making materials...
Once in the oak barrel cellar, taste the new wine, then taste it after 18 years in barrel. What a surprising taste experience, which shows to what extent the wood marks the wines!In the tasting room, be a "wine nose" for a moment by having fun recognising wine smells, then let yourself be guided in the tasting of young and then older Pessac-Léognan red wines. You will then understand why these good Bordeaux wines are left to age!A great moment for your taste buds while enriching your knowledge of wine!
