About this experience & host

Meet at the foot of the 15th century mill which gave its name to this prestigious appellation. Through a short walk (about 30 minutes, depending on the weather and your desires) you will discover the landscapes and terroirs of the Moulin-à-Vent cru, as well as the challenges represented by the work of the vines and the soils involved in a ambitious environmental approach. We will then return to the château for a visit to the vat room, our cellars, and a tasting of 6 wines: Beaujolais blanc Clos de Loyse, Morgon, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, as well as two of our plot selections. We always end the tasting with a 10-year-old wine in order to appreciate the potential for development of these wines.
