What you'll do

Visits will take place in the evening at our wine cellar where you will be surrounded by the sight, smell, and taste of wine. On your visit to our winery, you'll learn about what we do on a day-to-day basis for our small, family-run vineyard. You will receive an explanation about our techniques including how we harvest, press, and ferment the wine in the most natural ways possible.

We'll then lead a tasting of white, rosé and red wines accompanied by local/regional snacks to complement. We'll help you identify different flavors and aromas in the wine in addition to distinguishing the differences in the terroir. Depending on the season, there is also the possibility of tasting the wine at various stages of fermentation/aging.
Other things to note
Both wine connoisseurs and amateurs alike are welcome. Everyone has something to bring to the table.

My husband and I are organic and natural (no added sulfites) winemakers in the South of France. We started our own vineyard five years ago after my husband had been the cellar master of a nearby winery for over 7 years. We do everything from the grapes to the glass to make sure the wine best represents us as well as what our region has to offer. We love sharing our passion with those who are interested in what winemaking entails as well as enjoying a glass or two with our guests. My husband is French, and I am American, so both English and French tastings are possible.

Where you'll be

If you're looking for an authentic winemaker's home, look no further. Our wine cellar is located a 3-minute drive from the center of Vauvert. You'll take a short winding road through grape vines, and parking is available right in front of the cellar (just watch out for the chickens). You'll be surrounded by vines as far as the eye can see along with a pasture with typical white Camargue horses.

Un moment convivial de dégustation de ces vins différents de ceux qu'on a l habitude de boire le tout accompagné du chant des cigales. Edouard aime son métier et en parle avec passion. Attention à l accès si vous avez une voiture relativement basse chemin de terre et de pierres sur un bon gros kilomètre ce qui n est précisé nulle part. Nécessaire de donner plus d indications pour trouver le lieu car avec le point gps donné cela ne correspond pas du tout et nous sommes 2 couples à nous être perdu.

Wonderful experience. It was interesting to hear about the complexities of producing natural and organic wine, learn about the chemistry that is part of wine making. All shared with passion and a true desire to make good products. topped with lovely local snacks and tasting of wine and wine in the making. Can highly recommend and we left with a couple of boxes of wine we tasted.

Édouard est un passionné, et un vrai passionné sait captiver son auditoire. Chose faite lors de notre derniere expérience chez lui et sa femme Lane, où nous avons été conquis par son savoir faire et son puits de science (il sait aussi dire "je ne sais pas" ou "je ne me rappelle plus" je vous rassure). Ils ont récemment démarré leur activité et méritent amplement d'être soutenus. Moment convivial et on repart avec plein de nouveaux savoirs sur les terroirs. À faire !

Un moment authentique et convivial avec ce couple de vignerons qui ne fait que du vin naturel. Du raisin , du travail et de l’amour et rien d’autre. Les explications sont très sympa et les accompagnent sont tous très très bon.
