Ever wondered what really goes on in the vineyard? What are the processes in making and blending wine? Nick or Helen, the owners at Chateau de Claribes, will be your host and personal guide, welcoming you to The Tasting Room at Chateau de Claribes where we'll provide you with answers to your questions on this fun filled tour. We'll take you to the heart of our own vineyards with a visit to the vines to identify the different grape varieties, describe the seasonal vineyard activities, and explain the importance of the environment in farming organically. In the winery we'll give you an overview of the wine making process including blending and bottling. We finish in the Tasting Room where you will have a commented tasting on a selection of our wines. This is a great opportunity to get answers to your questions about vine growing and wine making from the people who do the work!
