The Vigneron Experience at De Beaurepaire Wines
Meet the vignerons, explore the vineyard + experience the wines at the home of 2018 Australian Wine of the Year, with a guided vineyard walk and wine masterclass.
Have you ever wondered what ‘terroir’ means and how it influences grapes varieties and wine styles; how De Beaurepaire Wines’ ‘terroir’ replicates that of Burgundy and Champagne; what this looks like in their vineyard; and how this expresses itself in their award-winning French-style wines? The ‘Vigneron Experience’ is for you!
Join Richard + Amanda de Beaurepaire for an informative and enjoyable experience getting under the skin of award-winning French-style wines. The ‘Vigneron Experience’ includes two special experiences rolled into one:
Vigneron Vineyard Experience: A guided vineyard walk
Have you ever wanted to walk through De Beaurepaire Wines' glorious 100,000 vines? It is tempting isn’t it! For biosecurity and safety reasons, exploring the vineyard is an experience not normally available. In this very special opportunity, Richard + Amanda will take you on a guided vineyard walk to explore their terroir, discover the vineyard in Spring, and experience vineyard life.
Vigneron Wine Experience: A wine masterclass
The French believe that 90% of French wine is determined by what happens in the vineyard. Having learnt where the wine starts, Richard + Amanda will take you on a journey through their range to explore how the terroir expresses itself in their award-winning wines. Your experience will include wines not normally available for tasting, including Reserves + méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines.
‘Vigneron Experience’ participants will meet members of the De Beaurepaire family and hear how passionate they are about the grapes they grow and wines they craft. And for the curious, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
After your experience, why not relax on the cellar door lawns with a glass of your favourite wine from the range, a delicious grazing boards, and soak up the stunning vineyard views. The perfect end to a weekend away!
