After visiting the family estate, step into the shoes of the cellar master. Start by tasting the different grape varieties in order to fully understand their specificity and their contribution to the composition of Bordeaux wines. The exercise will then consist in creating your own cuvée by subtly assembling 2 or 3 main grape varieties among Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit-Verdot.

This workshop, placed under the sign of pleasure above all, will make you discover the art of blending, the marriages of aromas, textures and flavors… It is your personality that will reveal itself! A beautiful program in perspective!
