We started with hearing and seeing how the grapes are grown, followed by a visit to the casks where the juice is fermented and aged. The tasting at the end was informative and our hosts were very knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth a visitMore

I'm not a big fan of Bordeaux in general, but Bernateau produce some excellent wines in the St-Emilion appellation that are really well balanced and not to austere. They just converted to organic, and the staff is super-friendly. I strongly recommend it.More
