Gourmet picnic at the Vineyard

Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, France

Experience hosted by Claire

2 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in French, English, Spanish

What you'll do

First I take you to the vineyards see the Merlot and explain all the care that must be given to the plant to get the most quantitative grape possible. Then I take you to our cellars to pierce all our winemaking secrets: first the fermentation cellar and then the barrel cellar where the wine rests and evolves little by little.
Then comes the time of tasting. 4 wines: 3 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and a Pomerol will stimulate your senses. We will discuss in detail the art of tasting.
Then comes the feast time: in the shade of a tree, surrounded by vineyards, a gourmet picnic accompanied by a glass of wine will be at your disposal: foie gras, homemade madeleines, Basque cheese and more still prepared with fresh and local products.
This is where time stops: with the view of the vineyards, the calm, the magic of the place and a good glass of wine :)
Other things to note
You will need a bike or a car to go to Château Panet from Saint Emilion.

After traveling the world and working in different vineyards, I am happy today to share my passion for wines with all those who wish! My knowledge I owe to passionate winemakers with whom I had the chance to work. The world of wine is endless: there is first the plant that must be raised, then the creation of wine to finally arrive at the tasting. Every step and decision of the winemaker is important. It's an art that raises many questions that I will be happy to answer around a nice glass of wine :)

A delightful couple of hours of informative tour of the vineyard and wine tasting, topped off by a feast of a picnic in an idyllic location. Claire was very knowledgeable but also engaging and friendly

Amazing day, location, staff and most importantly wine! We turned up with my 2 children (9 & 5) and were immediately greeted by Claire with a welcoming smile and refreshments. Claire was a fantastic host to me and my kids, she knew everything about the vineyard and local wines which was very interesting for us. We had a great tour of the vineyards, saw where the wine is made and stored and had a taste too with a magical picnic by the lake. Can’t wait to go back! Highly recommended!

Our visit with Claire at Chateau Panet was fantastic! Claire was very welcoming, extremely knowledgeable and very gracious in answering all our questions. (She even allowed us to practice our very rusty French skills with her and was patient as we struggled to find the correct words). Claire has an in depth knowledge of the art of producing great wines and a great passion for her craft. It was an enjoyable and engaging conversation about both winemaking and the specific vineyard that we visited. The two hours flew by, and before we knew it, it was time for lunch! After our dégustation, Claire set us up in a lovely spot for our gourmet picnic, under a beautiful willow tree next to a pond - heaven on earth! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone spending time in this region. You will not regret it!

Claire, the hostess was very interesting and had a lot of knowledge about wine making. It was just myself and my husband so we felt very comfortable asking questions. The lunch was delicious. We ate by a pond with ducks. Claire put out a picnic rug and pillows. I even managed to doze off. We picked up from the train station and dropped back to St. Emiliion. I would highly recommend it.

Ça a été une expérience magnifique! Claire nous a accueillit dans un endroit merveilleux. Un lieu paisible entouré de vignes. Claire a partagé avec nous sa passion pour la culture du vin, elle nous a transmis des connaissances précieuses pendant la visite du domaine et la dégustation. Les vins étaient délicieux, on s'est amusé à associer les bouteilles aux verres! Le pique-nique était copieux et très bon avec des produits locaux. On a eu aussi le plaisir d'échanger avec Claire sur d'autres sujets et on a passé de très beaux moments. C'est une expérience que je conseille! Merci à tout le monde et, en particulier, à Claire!
