We enjoy hosting our guests in our newly renovated tasting area. It’s a comfortable and warm environment, perfect for wine tasting and there’s something for everyone.
We offer opportunities to discover both the appellation and our domaine. It’s an informative experience as we explain the history of our Domaine, the terroir unique to Domaine Font du Vent aswell as cover the French appellation system, and the appellation of Châteauneuf-de-Pape.
We enjoy tailoring experiences to suit our guests. We are really flexible and can offer tours on bike or on foot to really experience the terroir and understand the appellation. We also offer guided visits to the domaine, vertical and barrel tasting and discuss the production and aging process of wine.
But if our visitors just want to drop in for a few minutes to taste our current vintage, and possibly pick up a couple of bottles of wine to enjoy during their holiday, they are more than welcome to do so. We can do it all.
Our team speaks German, English and of course French.
We have two visits available:
1. The Tasting Experience: A guided tour of the Domaine and a tasting of our current vintages. The Tasting Experience is free.
2. The Grand Cru Experience: 30€ per personne: A guided visit of the vines, an explanation of the terroir, our organic agricultural methods and the history of Châteauneuf du Pape. We explain the Roman history of the site “Font de Michelle “, as studied by archeologists, and offer our guests the chance to examine some Roman pottery from the site. . The visit continues at the domaine with a guided tour of the production of the wine, with a tasting of the current vintages, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages and Châteauneuf du Pape, plus an older vintage to see the evolution of the wine aged in bottles. If our visitors come during the harvest period, they can even cut the grapes! The Grand Crus Experience is about 1 hour, depending on the number of people visiting.
3. The Grand Cru experience plus light lunch: 50€ per person.
