Château de la Crée & Picnic
Program of the visit
Duration : 1h for the experience & free time for Picnic

The Château De La Crée Experience begins at the Château with a brief history of the village of
Santenay and Château de la Crée, founded in 1431 by Nicolas Rolin, Chancelor to Phillipe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy.

Following our fascinating discussion, we head to our vineyard, Santenay - clos du Château. The vineyard is planted with both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and spans a total of 1.5 hectares, or 3.7 acres. With fabulous scenery as our backdrop the conversation turns to the Burgundy classification and the influence of the terroir with its particular geology, topography, and aspect.

Topic changes to the appellation of Santenay, Château de la Crée vineyards- and- of course, wine growing. Finally, we end the tour in our stunning 15th - century vaulted cellar, where we taste a lovely selection of five Château de la Crée wines, led by one of our knowledgeable wine experts.

Before or after your Experience, enjoy your lunch break by opting for the de la Crée Picnic. Make the most of the beauty and peace of our vineyard. A light-hearted, relaxing time with friends and family awaits you.
