The experience continues in the winery with a presentation on sorting grapes, the vinification steps and then a tasting. A complete programme for your first harvest. Let's bet it won't be your last.

Tasting based around the harvest with Domaine Besancenot

If the secateurs are a bit off-putting, then no problem, as Thérèse and her team of winegrowers welcome you to Domaine Besancenot to discover the work around the harvest. Because cutting the bunches of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir isn’t the only stage of the harvest. At the Estate, little hands patiently await the tractors and trailers’ return to sort the grapes and prepare for the winemaking.

From 15 to 25 September, Domaine Besancenot invites you to go "behind the scenes" of the 2021 harvest. Visit to the winery with explanations on the work in the vat room and how the work is done, so you can discover all the secrets of a wine of excellence.

Also planned: tasting of 6 wines with charcuterie board and traditional gougères (cheese pastries), the little extra from Thérèse Besancenot - she loves gougères!

Practical information:

  • Dates: 15 to 25 September
  • Price: €25
  • Opening hours: from 10.00am to 12.30pm
