Step into the shoes of a wine maker for a day

How about spending a day making your own wine? At Château Maucoil, Cédric introduces you to flavour assemblage, before letting you compose your own perfect blend, just like a perfume! A wine that’s exactly to your taste :-) The action happens in the cellar, which is transformed into a chemistry lab for the occasion. Between high stacks of barrels stands a small “chemist’s” table, an invitation to taste and select the flavours you like, for use in your custom-made blend. A bit of Grenache, a bit of Syrah… Blending is done with a very big measuring tube and requires great precision – so it’s a proud moment when you come to bottling your blend ☺ As a fitting reward, there’s a fabulous lunch afterwards at the Domaine... Complemented by a good wine of course!
