ADOPT OUR VINES

 

Dear customers,

Adopting or sponsoring a vine stock from our vineyards is a new way to buy our wine.

Whether as a gift or for your own personal pleasure!

It’s a client-winemaker exchange that allows you to discover the other side of the bottle through a personalised and enriching annual experience.

By becoming a sponsor of the Mayard Family’s vines, you will experience the profession of winegrower by proxy for the time of a growing year.

You follow the evolution of your vines every month thanks to our newsletter with photos of your vines.

And at the end you receive your own wine with bottles personalised with your name, which you will enjoy tasting with family or friends!

You will then be able to renew your subscription at a preferential rate to remain among our benefactor customers or to end the experience.

And thanks to you, we benefit from a cash advance that helps us invest in our estate.

Adopting a vine plant is a good process to help us in our investments (replanting, cellar modernisation, acquisition of vines and equipment).

Très belle surprise : Nous avons été accueilli assez chaleureusement et surtout nous étions seul... Notre dégustation... s'est donc très bien passée avec de nombreuses explications, une dégustation rallongée de quelques verres pour nous faire découvrir la panoplie de cuvées disponible. Je recommande donc très chaleureusement, mais hors-saison 🙂read more

Great experience! Most wineries won’t show you everything during busy harvest season, but this one does because it is... more educational to see harvest in ACTION! You meet at the retail/store front and hop in your car to follow the very friendly guide to the vineyard a few minutes away. She showed us the vines and all over the production facility. Then headed back to the shop for 5 tastings. We tried a white, rosè and three reds. Bottle prices were very reasonable for purchase. Had a good time.read more

Nous avions réservé une visite pour 2 sur le site « rue des Vignerons ». La réservation nous a été confirmée par mail... et sms. Lorsque nous sommes arrivés devant la porte du vignoble, il était fermé. Un post-it était collé sur la porte. Dessus il était écrit « ré ouverture à 15h » alors que nous avions réservé pour une visite à 14h... Nous avons tenté de joindre à 4 reprises le vignoble par téléphone, en vain ... Nous avons finalement reçu un mail à 15h01 nous prévenant que notre réservation était annulée ... Bref, mauvaise expérience !read more

Quelle déception ! Après une magnifique visite et dégustation effectuée avec la propriétaire il y a deux ans qui nous... avait enchantée, aujourd'hui nous revenons dans cette cave avec plaisir pour se faire refouler dès l'entrée par une employée apparemment débordée. Non seulement, elle nous a fait sentir que nous n'étions pas les bienvenues mais en plus s'est à peine occupée de nous et ce de la manière la plus irreespectueuse qui soit. Pour finir, en plus de manquer de savoir-être avec ses clients, elle s'est mise à dénigrer le vin qu'elle vendait, nous recommandant même d'aller chercher notre vin au supermarché! C'est bien la première et j'imagine dernière fois que j'entends un caviste nous recommander une telle chose...read more

Great store for same name vineyard (no, it's not the vineyard - the store is a small place inside the town, and is... really beautiful and charming, but very small). The service is superb, providing good information and explaining each wine you taste. Again: tasting (to know the wine), not drinking. Do not expect a full glass...The wine was excellent in my opinion. So far one of the best ones I had tasted so far. Many of them can be aged for 10-15 years (around EUR 30-40 and over, way over). And have some younger ones good to be drinked now (around EUR 25-30).read more

Reviews & Endorsements

Jeb Dunnuck Selection

 

“La Crau de Ma Mère 2018 – This beautiful classic Châteauneuf du Pape is ideal to drink over the next 10-12 years, if not longer”.

– Jeb Dunnuck

The Wine Cellar Insider

 

“Medium-bodied, spicy and fresh, with a touch of earth and bret on the nose, the wine clearly offers depth, richness and layers of ripe, red and peppery fruit on the palate and finish to end things quite nicely”.

– Jeff Leve

The Wine Advocate

 

“Hints of garrigue and crushed stones are bound togethher by threads of raspberries and dark chocolate in the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau de Ma Mère, wich is largely derived from old-vine Grenache grown in La Crau. Full-bodied, generous and silky in yexture. It’s a ripe, seamless effort that should drink well for up to a decade.”

– Joe Czerwinski

Guide Dussert-Gerber 2021

 

A pretty Châteauneuf du Pape 2017 La Crau de Ma Mère, made from a selection of very old vines dominated by Grenache, supplemented by Mourvèdre and Syrah, marked by its terroir, all in colour, very aromatic, with connotations of pepper, humus and over-ripe red fruit, fat, combining finesse and structure”.

– Patrick Dussert-Gerber

Nicolas Bria's blog

 

“La Crau de ma Mère – 2017 (Red), complex and racy but at the same time very fresh and chiselled. Definitely a great wine.”

– Nicolas Bria

WeinWisser Magazine

 

“Complex bouquet, cherries and blackberries, cinnamon, cardamom, notes of garrigue. Surprises with fruity freshness, fine body, elegant tannins and a mineral note..”     17/20

André Dominé

Wine Enthusiast

 

“While demure on first whiff, this bold, concentrated wine seems to amplify in richness and extract on the palate. Ripe black cherry, fig and mulberry are lavish and spicy, streaked by layers of anise, vanilla and smoke. It’s an opulent but elegantly integrated wine edged by fine, densely packed tannins. The explosion of fruit should gain finesse through 2040.” 

Anna Lee C. Iijima

Frequently asked questions on the adoption of our vines

 

 

What does the agronomic initiation of the "privilege formula" consist of?

This is a half-day during which you will take part in the work in the vineyards, established according to the season in which you will come.

What do I need to bring for this half-day initiation?

Your smile and your good mood! These moments of life are pure moments of happiness. It is advisable to come with the right outfit and shoes above all! Don’t forget that the famous Châteauneuf du Pape rolled pebbles are the perfect solution for all city shoes.

How can I take part in a ½ agronomic initiation day?

All you have to do is buy our privilege formula which also entitles you to a 15% discount on the price of your stay in the accomodation of your choice on BonSejourChezNous.eu.

Are there fixed dates for the ½ introductory days?

Yes, there are several ½ initiation days scheduled over a growing year where you will need to register in advance.

You will be informed of the dates several weeks in advance via our newsletter. And you will be invited to register as soon as possible for an optimal organisation.

How do I get my coupon code for -15% off the price of my stay in Châteauneuf du Pape?

Just buy our “privilege offer”. As soon as we receive your payment, you will get your personal promotional code by e-mail. This will allow you to benefit from a 15% discount on the total amount of your stay in a holiday rental, in the accommodation of your choice on BonSejourChezNous.eu.

The privilege offer is ideal to come with family or friends to discover your vines, visit our cellar and taste our wines! Your personal promotional code is only valid for one year and for a single stay.

How do I collect my personalised bottles?

Your 6 bottles of Crau de Ma Mère personalised with your name and surname on the back label, will be given to you during your visit to the estate (whatever the period of your subscription).

However, if you are unable to come and visit us, we will organise a shipment by carrier, but the shipping costs will be at your charge. You will need to contact us to proceed with the shipment of the wines. Beyond one year, the bottles will be considered as abandoned.

How do I renew my vine stock adoption subscription?

Your subscription ends 365 days after you purchase one of our formulas. However, if you wish to renew the experience of being a winegrower by proxy for another year, simply place your order again.
