What do you think about become a Master Blender? You too can create your own wine or your own cognac!
Have you ever dreamed of creating your own wine? Many producers offer you the chance to make your dream come a true experience as they show you round their vineyards.
Thanks to the Bordeaux”Pass Vin”, visit châteaux which organise introductions to blending, “wine and cheese” or “wine and chocolate” workshops, as well as “olfactory cinema” visits. Introductions to blending are also offered in Champagne by J. De Telmont, Tanneux-Mahy, Champagne Devaux or Morel Père & Fils. You can also try your hand at being a Cognac Master Blender for two whole hours thanks to the great Maison Camus, and leave with your own bottle adorned with a label in your name.
In Languedoc, you can leave Villa Limonade with a souvenir after the vintage blending workshop. As for the Riberach estate it offers you a variety of oenological activities
focusing on wine and cooking. Find out everything about the various steps in wine production as well as the different tools used at the Musée régional de la Vigne et du Vin de Savoie (Savoie regional vine and wine museum) open all year round. It even runs harvesting and grape pressing workshops using the freshlypicked grapes during the harvesting period.
In Provence, the Maison des Vins, Château de Trets and the Abbaye de la Celle welcome you to their “vinothèque”, wine centre with introductory tastings and workshops where they can teach you how to recognise different grapes. Wine sale, guided tours and shop areas will take you on a voyage of discovery of a whole host of local crafts and regional produce.
