Thank you so much for the kind words Rebecca! We are delighted that you truly enjoyed your visit and we'll be happy to welcome you again should you be in the area! Meanwhile we wish you all the best for the wedding next year!

We visited with a tour group and were greeted as if we were old friends. Ms. Baudet was an excellent communicator and a wonderful spokesperson for the chalet. Her presentation was informative and seemed more than just an often-repeated spiel. She was beautifully interactive when...More
On a recent ''Oldie'" magazine wine tasting tour we were superbly hosted by the owner + his wife at this Chateau. Having previously tasted their excellent, and very reasonably priced, wine I was excited to visit the Chai.
The visit was the high point of...More
