Cellar visits and wine tastings
Stay in Provence, wine road
With more than 300 owners harvesting in the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, you will have a wide choice of cellar visits!
If you feel a little lost, or if you would like to experience a VIP cellar tour in the estates and châteaux of Châteauneuf du Pape, please contact us.
We will direct you to experienced guides who will show you the cellars of the most prestigious estates of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation.
A family estate for 6 generations, we owe a lot to my father Maurice Mayard who invested in the vines of Chateauneuf du Pape throughout his career.
Maurice inherited 7 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape vines from his father Alphonse in 1976. And he bequeathed to his children (my sister Françoise, my brother Didier and myself) a vineyard of 43 hectares (33 owned and 10 rented).
Our generation, as well as the next with the arrival of my nephew Arthur in the agronomic management of our estate, have helped to develop the reputation and sales of Vignobles Mayard.
We have always been committed to sustainable agriculture, very respectful of the environment.
At the instigation of Arthur and my sister Françoise, we are now labelled Organic Agriculture.
Tastings can be done without an appointment for groups of less than 5 people, but it is still advisable to book.
However, cellar visits can only be made by appointment in the morning. For 15 euros per person, you will discover our wine making and maturing cellars.
Then you will taste our different vintages of Châteauneuf du Pape in a magnificent cellar, under the vaults and renovated stones of a former 17th century castle.
