Lunch
amidst the wineyards

Welcome to our Cadole (or winegrower’s lodge)

Ours is not a traditional cadole. It is more spacious, more convivial and can welcome up to 10 people.

It is a unique place for a gastronomic lunch served with Champagne while admiring a spectacular view of the surrounding vineyards.

You can visit our domain before or after lunch if you wish. The visit lasts about an hour and a half.

NIGHT
HARVEST

During harvest time, you can arrive at the estate late in the afternoon. The cellar is a hive of activity with the pressing of the grapes.         
For the aperitif, you will taste 3 different cuvées and have dinner with our grape pickers in the exhilarating, happy atmosphere of the harvest!   
At twilight you will be accompanied to the Clos Rocher.

There you will be given a pair of gloves, a bucket and a secateur. Then it is up to you! But, fear not ! An experienced grape harvester will accompany you all the way.

Seminars and celebrations

For your festive or professional events, we have a  function room with a capacity of 120 people.

It has been created by using the tools of our trade: the tables are made from barrels, the doors are sculpted out of old wooden vats and vine branches decorate the walls.

A warm fire is lit  in cold weather, cocktails are served outside in warm weather. The cosy atmosphere is conducive to conviviality.
