Please note that we will do our best to book the wineries chosen but it will always depend upon their availability at time of booking.

Choose among a selection of Family friendly Options
Option 1 - From age 6 to 11 years old : First steps at the chateau ! Discovery game in the vineyard and the Cellars, before tasting the little gourmet menu. 

Option 2 - The ghost of Pierre Merman, first owner of this Château, is a real prankster : he stole the « recipe » of the wines ! With a map, children and adults share this fun experience that leads them all over the property. A captivating and unusual family adventure which will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories ! 

Option 3 - Equipped with an audio and video I-pad, you can explore the estate, its history and its wines in an original way by answering all the questions asked throughout a discovery tour. You will then participate in a wine tasting session.

Option 4 - Petit Marquis takes our guests' children into a world that matches their powers of imagination and their capacity for wonder. Many surprises and old-fashioned games await them as they discover the estate. A journey into a universe where everything is designed to spark children's curiosity and sharpen their senses.

Option 5 - Another great option is to visit a barrel making facility. Visit the production area where the coopers create the wine barrels, enjoy a tasting at the end of the visit ! This is a unique visit for both parents and children alike.
