Oenological workshop Private visit
Available in: French
Armed with a test tube, transform yourself into an apprentice oenologist.
During this oenological workshop, the objective is to create, in small groups, blended cuvées based on "bruts de cuves".
Each group has 4 vintages of blends to be made according to qualitative criteria (Elegance, complexity, balance, length, finesse).
The group, after a unanimous decision, will have to present the selected cuvée to the winemaker Henri Bour.
At the end of the workshop, all the selected cuvées are tasted and the verdict is given on the best-made cuvée.
It's very friendly and fun, in the form of a challenge.

About the host

Grangeneuve was founded 50 years ago by my parents, Odette and Henri BOUR. What a long adventurous way since the beginning of the enterprise; my parents are now almost at the age of retirement! It took us decades of hard work to arrive at the point of making our wines known, since the creation of our vineyard in lieu of the local oak forest, within an very unknown AOC, until the day when our wines are found on the menus of very reputable establishments, including many Michelin-starred restaurants. We owe our success to our high level of demand for quality.At Grangeneuve nothing or almost nothing is left to chance, except the weather!

We practice sustainable farming; we work our soil on a regular basis, and we use the least aggressive products for our vines. We harvest at optimal ripeness of the grapes in correlation with the objectives for each vintage and wine variety. We conduct meticulous and precise vinification, to showcase our grapes, the fruits of our terroir. The vinifications are carried out by grape variety and by parcel, adapting to the potential of each vine and to the objectives that we set for each wine. We regularly invest in materials for the cellar and for winemaking in order to progress each year in our search for quality. We are driven by the desire to make quality wines without any concession, and with a deep consideration for our customers.
