Very nice enriching visit with Ana who was very generous in her comments. We learn a lot in a relaxed context where we are in contact with nature. In addition, the tastings are excellent and numerous. We recommend this visit without hesitation. Serge and Gaétane, Quebec City

Although we were there a little later, admission went smoothly. It wasn't that crowded at 10:00 a.m. The entire complex is of course impressive, especially the gardens.

We were very enthusiastic about our competent and very informative guide. A very good English speaking young man
