Our Enchanting World

A glimpse in our present pursuits and warm invitation to join our harvest team 2024!

Welcome to our wine wonderland, where grape aficionados of the globe unite to uncover the magic of artisan fine wine! Amidst the peak of summer, Therese and her squad of wine wizards invite you on a wild ride, offering tantalizing tastings and fabulous tours that breathe life into our nickname, 'Chateau La Tour' 😉

At the heart of the wine revelry stands the maestro himself - Hans Herzog. Alongside his enthusiastic assistant Cyril and a crew of casual helpers, they embark on a leaf-plucking odyssey, ensuring VIP treatment for the grapes, ensuring optimal air flow and just the right exposure to sunshine. With continuous warm, dry weather, the berries mature faster than you can say ‘cheers’, heralding the grand spectacle of veraison, our grape metamorphosis. The looming task? Netting the entire vineyard to defend against feathered grape enthusiasts.
