Château La Tour de Chollet

on Sat 30 May

We are now staying at Château La Tour de Chollet just 30 minutes from St Emillion at our producers in this area.

Paul, Kirsty and family have made us very welcome. They not only run a 8 hectare vineyard but have a B&B which can sleep 7, which is perfect for 2 families. The property is ideally situated for visiting the numerous vineyards in this area of France.

Today Paul has taken us on a tour of the vineyard. He and Kirsty do the majority of the work themselves with occasional help to prune and pick the grapes. Chollet is on a mild, south western facing, slope which leads down to the Dordogne. Both red and white grapes are grown, this is a 100% organic farm with the biggest enemy being mildew, which is controlled by organic sprays, although these are effective they need to be re-treated every 10 days (more often if it rains!)

Once the grapes are picked the wine-making process is 100% completed at the vineyard. Blending is a dual process between Paul and his oenologist, they are a good team and have worked together since the first vintage
