A VISIT OF THE CHÂTEAU IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT A TRIP DOWN TO COUNT DE VANSSAY’S WINE CELLAR, FOLLOWED BY A VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL TASTING OR A GEOGRAPHICAL TRIP THROUGH FRANCE VIA ITS MANY DIVERSE WINES…

CHÂTEAU DE LA BARRE

After a visit of the Château and the wine cellars, congregate around the buffet by the majestic fireplace and with Count de Vanssay begin an oenological trip through France! Travel to Burgundy to taste the Pinot Noir, then to Bordeaux to discover the assemblages, then via the grands Crus of Beaujolais descend the Rhône Valley towards Provence finishing at Châteauneuf-du-Pape, made from 13 different cépages. Or decide on a vertical tasting of various years from your favorite wine. Or remain in the Loire Valley, concentrating on the Chenin whites of Vouvray and Jasnières, and discovering the rare Romorantin, the Sauvignons and Cabernet Francs. Or have fun with a blind tasting and a prize to be won at the end! All accompanied by a large selection of cheeses and terroir products.
