Guidelines and Tips

We gladly share the following guidelines and tips with you to ensure that your visit will be enjoyable and memorable. These guidelines are intended for visitors and are not rigidly set in stone. Each cellar may operate on a different system.

 

 

Where do I start?

  1. Decide which cellar you wish to visit.
  2. You will need at least one hour for each wine farm you visit.
  3. Try to join at least one cellar tour, as you will find it most informative.
  4. Consult the provided MAPS.
  5. Decide where you want to enjoy lunch. We suggest you arrive between 12h30 and 13h30 as most restaurants do not serve lunch after 15h00.
  6. Arrive at your last cellar at least an hour before closing time to ensure that you can still taste their wines.
  7. Appoint a designated driver and drive safely.

I'm here, what now? 

  1. Most cellars request that you buy a glass to taste their wines. They usually do not allow tasting out of any other glass other than those sold by them. You can collect glasses as souvenirs.
  2. Each cellar has a limit to the amount of wine you may taste. Ask the tasting room assistant.
  3. Taste dry white wines first, proceed to red wines and sample sweeter wines last. Sparkling wines can be enjoyed in between to clean your palate. The tasting order will allow your palate to progress naturally.
  4. Do not swallow all wines tasted! Spit the wine into the spittoons provided in the tasting room.
  5. Smoking is not allowed in tasting rooms.
  6. Some cellars will serve you at the table and others may only serve at the tasting counter. Ask your tasting room assistant.

How to purchase wine?

  1. Most cellars allow you to buy mixed cases of wine.
  2. Wine can be delivered to your door on request.
  3. Most cellars offer secure packaging for air cargo.
  4. Remember that wine is a perfect and unique gift from the region.
