What is the easiest way to get to you?

The easiest way to come to us is to fly into Bordeaux. You can then decide to hire a car to drive to us, which is quite straightforward as it is motorway all along and only 1 hour drive. Or you can catch the shuttle bus at the airport that will take you to Bordeaux station, and jump on a train to Tonneins. We will collect you from Tonneins train station at no extra charge.

Meet some of the people we'll visit

Of the many producers we visit on the seasonal french cooking course, Tucked away among the rolling hills of the Lot-et-Garonne, Gilbert has been crafting his wines for many years. As an organic wine producer he grows a selection of grapes including a very special variety unique to the area. His knowledge and experience in wine is what makes visiting Gilbert very special. On our visit, he'll walk us through his grape vines explaining how he uses the natural environment to benefit the vines themselves and the blending methods used to achieve great tasting wine. You'll soon discover his wines have lots of character and flavour as we have a wine tasting over a picnic together.
