Come and have a wonderful history-packed time full of great discoveries, with Château de Champ-Renard owners Fabienne Vilain and Denis Garnier, who'll make sure you have an enjoyable wine experience. Here's what's on the agenda:
- Discovery of the Château dating back to the Middle Ages with a focus on its history and architecture, then head for the winegrowing estate.
- Walk through the romantic 19th century park to admire the tradition of picturesque gardens with its giant sequoia and rococo-style bridge. The emotion of a place, a history, a moment, a note... the park offers the opportunity to discovery an exhibition of works by sculptor Fernand Greco, who, as it happens, finds his inspiration in emotion.
