This wine yard did not impress me at all. The husband was really nice and held the tour both in English and French. Although many may appreciate a video presentation I do not. I found it to be uninspiring and dull. The tasting was ok and we where treated to some magic tricks by the owner. It's just a short... More

Beautiful home, lovely and entertaining owner, very informative trip, a must do in St- Emilion, it was the highlight of our Bordeaux escapade. We bought wine and the owner signed our bottle, a nice gesture.

Went here in November during an afternoon slot and the tour was still busy. The owner was very nice, walked us around and there was a video explaining the process of making the wine. Everyone had the opportunity to taste two different wines before being given a little information about them and going outside to take photos of the vineyard.

Went as part of a tour group and had a really fun and informative afternoon. The owner is hilarious and kept everyone entertained with his jokes and magic tricks. Tried the wine and bought a bottle! They only take cash no card payments. Beautiful part of the world ♥️♥️♥️ the visit.

The proprietor flirts, sings, and magics his way through the tour and presentation. He clearly loves his work, and he clearly enjoys having visitors. But behind all that is a serious winemaker, and the video of the wine production process that he shows was a real addition to the other presentations we have seen. In particular, you see a lot...

This was the last stop for the day, and what a delight to meet Arnaud and see how this chateau makes their wine. Very informative, charming, and my children enjoyed themselves immensely. He was a congenial host and guide and the wine tasting was very very good. I am looking forward to how the wine will taste after a few... More

I highly recommend booking a tasting at Château Laniote and spending time with the Vintner, Arnaud. Whether you are a first-time château visitor or an experienced connoisseur, Arnaud makes you feel very welcome. He is very entertaining and was a delight to listen to. Thank you for the wonderful wines and memories!

We had a fun visit with Arnaud. He's brilliant, so very entertaining and so welcoming. There were three of us and we laughed and chatted away with Arnaud all the way through our visit. The best part... having a glass of Chateaux Laniote at the end and discovering it is one of the most wonderful wines I have ever tasted.... More

We did 4 wineries / Chateaus on our tour and this one was by far the most informative and the most fun. Arnaud is a enthusiastic and entertaining host. His magic tricks and hilarious flirting with the girls only adds to the differentiating factor of this tour. The biggest USP though relates to his illustration of the wine process. The... More

Arnaud is such a friendly and informative fellow. It was great to talk to a winemaker who is actually the family...the direct descendant over 9 generations. It was the most "personal" wine tasting we've ever had...not to mention how great his wine is! - the magic tricks were just a bonus :)
