Tours and tastings are available by appointment. Visits consist of an intimate, unrushed educational session led by a knowledgeable member of the Dodon team.
We allocate a portion of our wines for guests who wish to have a tasting experience while learning about the farm and vineyard. During these visits, we tell the story of the site, including a description of the 500 million years of geological evolution contained in each bottle. We offer two levels of tours.
Tours and tastings are available by appointment only on Thursdays through Sundays. Introductory tours typically begin at 1 pm, and Collectors tours typically begin at 3 pm. If you are interested in booking a tour and tasting for a large group at other times, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tastings take place rain or shine.
