The wines of Bordeaux are renowned throughout the world for their elegance and complexity. Such finesse and structure are often achieved through the complex process of "assemblage": blending different grape varieties.

After a private visit of a wine estate in the Lalande de Pomerol or Saint Émilion appellation, you will put on your lab coats for a wine blending workshop.

Examine and taste the different grape varieties with a member of the technical team on the property - you will understand the importance of the local 'terroir' (soil & climate) and how to achieve perfect balance in order to make a perfect wine.

After the presentation, create your own cuvée, blending the grapes according to your preferences. Possibility to take home a sample of your own creation.

A fun and interactive activity that you will remember for years to come!
