Legacy & Picnic
Program of the visit
Duration : 1h30-2h & free time for picnic

The private Legacy & Picnic Experience begins at the Château with a brief history of Santenay and Château de la Crée, which were founded in 1431 by Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor to Phillipe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy.

Following our captivating discussion, we head to our Monopole vineyard, Clos du Château. The vineyard is planted in both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a total of 1.5 hectares, or 3.7 acres. With this mesmerizing backdrop, the conversation steers to the intricacies of the Burgundy classification system, and the influence of terroir in regard to geology, geography, and aspect.

We then delve into the appellation of Santenay, the vineyards of Château de la Crée, and of course, viticulture.

Finally, the Legacy Experience takes us to our stunning 15th-century vaulted cellar, where we savor and enjoy a lovely wine tasting of a selection of six Château de la Crée wines, led by one of our insightful experts. Weather permitting, the tasting can be held outdoors in the vineyard.

Before or after your experience, enjoy your lunch break with the Picnic de la Crée. Make the most of the beauty and peace of our Clos, relaxing with friends and family, making memories to cherish for a lifetime.

You will find in your picnic basket a delightful cold entrée, cheese and dessert. Ingredients are seasonal, fresh and sourced from our local purveyors.

A junior picnic is also available, for our guests up to 12-years old.*
