We had booked wine tasting at this vineyard over the Internet a couple of weeks before coming to the area. We turned up about 10 minutes before the tour started only to be asked if we could come back in an hour as the owner/manager was eating. Needless to say we didn't. Shame as it looked a lovely setting.

During our Wine Tour we visited Chateau Laniote. The owner Monsieur Arnaud de la Filolie, met us and he was very entertaining, most informative and charming host. Chateau Laniote is a Grand Cru Classe and the wine was very good. It is a traditional family estate and most of the work is done by hand with a focus on quality.... More

We visited Laniote in May - this was my husband's second visit. You cannot beat the energy and excitement of Arnaud - he will make anyone laugh! We enjoyed the addition of the movie to his tour. The wines are so-so, but the entertainment makes the visit worthwhile! This would be a great vineyard to tour with children.

The owner, Arnaud, made us feel like guests. He was entertaining and most informative. A charming host. We happened to choose his vineyard by chance, and were delighted we had. It was an eyeopener to see how small vineyards operate - very different than the norm in Australia.

I visited Chateau Laniote following the recommendation of a friend, by chance we happened to be driving through st emilion on the day Arnaud and his family were picking the grapes. Instead of turning us away, his family gave us an apron and gloves and got us picking. We felt privileged to have been part of the process - watch... More

We had such a good time on this very intimate wine tour, conducted by the owner himself, Monsieur Arnaud de la Filolie, who is a true gentleman and also a bit of a magician on the side! His passion for winemaking was amazing and infectious. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

We are a group of three American couples and Chateau Laniote was recommended by the owner of our rental (La Pignarderie, reviewed elsewhere) so we made an appointment and were welcomed by the owner, Arnaud de la Filolie. He could not have been more gracious, entertaining, and forthcoming; our wives all fell a little bit in love with him. He... More
