An excellent experience - Alex was very knowledgable and the wines we tried were excellent! He took us through four white and four red wines, including several Grand and Premier Cru. Alex was approachable and easy to talk to, and he gave us time to taste the wines and discuss between ourselves before telling us more on each individual wine.

Group of 7. Very warm welcome. Quality of explanations and cellar visits. Very well designed to make the visit dynamic and interesting. A passionate and very competent guide. Well documented tasting.

We had a wonderful day with Emanuel which was very patient and we learned so many new details from him! The wines were great and the total experience was amazing! Very recommended…

We found it fun, and at the same time very practical for being able to visit at our own pace. With very good descriptions and very well told. Experience to be repeated.

Very enriching visit. Thank you to the guide for introducing us to this emblematic place.
