Create Your Own Wine at Maison Lavau

If you really want to understand what goes into a Rhône Valley red, there’s no better way than making one yourself. At the Maison Lavau, visitors can attend make-your-own wine workshops. Winemakers lead groups of two to six in two-hour winemaking sessions, teaching the crucial differences between the key regional grapes syrah and grenache, as well as the basic principles of how to blend each grape variety to achieve the perfect balance between fruit and tannin. At the end of your lab-tasting session, you’ll leave with a bottle of your very own cru.
