Please note that we will do our best to book the wineries chosen but it will always depend upon their availability at time of booking.
Château Phélan Ségur: From age 6 to 11 years old: First steps at the chateau! Discovery game in the vineyard and the Cellars, before tasting the little gourmet menu.
Château Le Crock: The ghost of Pierre Merman, the first owner of the Château, is a real prankster: he stole the « recipe » of the wines! With a map, children and adults share this fun experience that leads them all over the property. A captivating and unusual family adventure which will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories!
Château d’Agassac: Equipped with an audio and video I-pad, you can explore the estate, its history and its wines in an original way by answering all the questions asked throughout a discovery tour. You will then participate in a wine tasting session.
Château Marquis d’Alesme: Petit Marquis takes our guests’ children into a world that matches their powers of imagination and their capacity for wonder. Many surprises and old-fashioned games await them as they discover the estate. A journey into a universe where everything is designed to spark children’s curiosity and sharpen their senses.
Another great option is to visit a barrel making facility:
