Wines from everywhere. Wines for everyone.A N E W A P P R O A C H TO W I N E www.winery.fr
Welcome to la WineryWine’s principal lesson: it’s good to share.My family have been growing grapes and making wine for four generations, and I had always dreamt ofcreating a new and exceptional space dedicated exclusively to wine.There’s something magic about wine: it is brewed up from the soil and the seasons, the violence of the rain,the softness of the Sun, the labour of love of those who work the vines and even, sometimes, a lucky combi-nation of all these. And yet wine, imbued with the Sun and the soil, whether savoured alone or enjoyed withfriends, is not a complex mystery to be decoded with long words but a living encouragement to happiness,conversation, knowledge and recognition. La Winery is designed as a learning trail to help you discover theessential nature of wine, as a joy to be shared. The park and its picnic areas, the wine boutique with its1001 fine wines from everywhere in the world, the restaurant, the exhibitions of contemporary art andprogramme of cultural events all go to make La Winery exceptional. Leave your prejudices and preconceptionsbehind and come to learn more about wine, in a setting where contact and communication come easily.Philippe Raoux
