During the harvests, the Médocaines wine producers open their doors to visitors curious to witness the birth of a new vintage.
How are the harvest dates decided? To answer this question, Château Paloumey's team takes you on a tour of the vines, where you can taste the Merlot or Cabernet grapes and be initiated into the art of judging when they are ripe. You then participate in picking some of the grapes, and learn about the important task of sorting the grapes in order to obtain a perfect harvest.
In the second part of the workshop, the secrets of vinification are revealed as you visit the vat room where you will see fermentation and pumping over, and be invited to taste the must.
A unique Médoc experience, this very participative workshop finishes with a tasting of a vintage of Château Paloumey.
Harvest workshops can be organized for a half-day at Château Paloumey or a full day in partnership with Château du Taillan (vineyard lunch included).
Available by reservation only for groups of a minimum of 10 people (prices on request).
