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.
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 our vineyard; and how this expresses itself in our award-winning French-style wines? Then our ‘Vigneron Experience’ is for you!
Join Richard & Amanda de Beaurepaire for an informative and enjoyable couple of hours getting under the skin of our 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 our glorious 100,000 vines? It is tempting isn’t it! For biosecurity and safety reasons, exploring our vineyard is an experience not normally available 😊. In this very special opportunity, Richard & Amanda will take you on a guided vineyard walk to explore our terroir, discover our 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 our wine starts, Richard & Amanda will take you on a journey through our range to explore how our terroir expresses itself in our award-winning wines. Your experience will include wines not normally available for tasting, including Reserves and méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines.
‘Vigneron Experience’ participants will meet members of the de Beaurepaire family and hear how passionate we are about the grapes we grow and wines we craft. And for the curious, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
After your experience, why not relax on our cellar door lawns with a glass of your favourite wine from our range, one of our delicious grazing boards, and soak up the stunning vineyard views. The perfect end to a weekend away!
Bookings are essential, and spaces are limited.
Vigneron Experience Information
Meeting Point: The Vigneron Experience starts from the cattle yards at the top of our vineyard at 10.00am. You will find the cattle yards on the right-hand side, about 1.5 km down our driveway. Please park on the hardstand near the cattle yards. Please introduce yourself to Richard & Amanda de Beaurepaire and have your Vigneron Experience participation confirmation with you.
Transport: After completing the ‘Vigneron Vineyard Experience’, participants will need to drive themselves down the rest of the driveway to our cellar door for the ‘Vigneron Wine Experience’.
What to bring: Please wear covered shoes and leave your pets at home/in the car as pets are not allowed in the vineyard. Remember we’ll be outside for part of this experience!
Experience duration: The ‘Vigneron Experience’ lasts approximately 2 hours from 10am – 12 noon. You are more than welcome to then enjoy yourself on our cellar door lawns with a grazing board and a glass of wine, both of which can be ordered from our cellar door.
Cost: $35 per adult. This includes your guided vineyard tour, and your wine masterclass.
