This gift from our children was fabulous 2 friends joined us for a modest price and received the same royal treatment we did 2 coupons toward wine purchases - which they used. The ambience setting staff wine and cheeses unique and tasty were excellent. Very interesting and admirable sustainability practices which is one of the reasons we chose this winery. Highly recommended.

My husband and I were given this tour for our retirement. I don't drink and wasn't expecting to have as good a time as I did. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I did taste a little of each wine and it was interesting to taste and smell the differences. Met a lovely couple who also was on the Samba tour and had the wine and cheese portion with them. Very enjoyable time. Would suggest the Chateau des Charmes it was beautiful.

I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift. We were absolutely thrilled with the tour experience. We found Paul to be a very knowledgeable guide very informative. As we drove in the area I was noticing things about vineyards in other vineyards that he had told us about in out tour. He made the afternoon very delightful. We also greatly enjoyed the cheese and wine pairing time and the wine we brought home with us. I would highly recommend this experience and we look forward to more experiences like this.

Reviewer: Kelly

Chateau des Charmes was a wonderful experience We arrived and were immediately impressed by the beautiful mansion surrounded by vineyards. Our tour guide was extremely informative and patient with all of our questions and gave us a thorough understanding of the complexity of the wine making process. After the tour we had a wine tasting where we learned the proper way to really taste a wine. We were then led upstairs to an extra wine tasting that we learned was exclusive to Samba Days customers Here we were served a platter of different cheeses crackers and fruit that our tour guide explained was specifically chosen to enhance each of the new wines we were trying. She left us to ourselves after explaining the combinations and told us to take our time. As we were leaving we were reminded not to forget the two lovely bottles of wine that were included with our Samba Days tour. Great time

It wasn't until we had our personal taste test and I have to say that Sylvie was an excellent hostess.
