I enjoyed trying the wines, white, rosé and red varietals... for some reason I fancy their cheap "rosé fruité" in the summer heat... but get ready for some great surprises with their reds. Organic could be enhanced...

We went here as part of a Noble Caledonia cruise tour and was very dissapointed...........how the garden can be "garden of the year" admittedly in 2008 I will never know. Maybe went too early (try May onwards) but it really is not much at all and lacking TLC. Then the wine was awful altough the presentation by a lovely German lady was excellent but not the food or wine! Avoid

I was very pleased to meet with Ludovic such an enthusiastic fellow. His guest approach could be an inspiration for other less eager staff members. Kudos for their daily event magazine which came out in June covering local and regional events.... the chateau is also interesting...

A small-scale Organic wine producer with a small degustation/vistor shop. The two ladies appeared to be very knowledgeable about the winery produce and their mid-range 3 year old whites and reds were particularly good for not a lot of coin (about €9 a bottle). They also do a superb rose wine, essential mediterranean summer afternoon drinking!
