A lot of real winemaking behind all the flash and sizzle

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 :)

Fantastic place, and we were so glad we visited. Having hired bicycles from the tourist office, we went on a tour and this was our favourite stop. The magic tricks were a brilliant way to break the ice, and the video of the wine process was a good balance of what was needed. The wine itself was also fantastic. I... More

This was our third wine tour in the region and we loved the wine and the owners. This is a family owned winery for seven generations. The tour was fun because of the owners - but the wine was excellant too.

Loved it. We came from Australia and found the tour, and the magic tricks and entertainment provided by the owner, unforgettable. The owner also goes to hospitals to do magic tricks for sick people, which says it all really. What a kind, entertaining and lovely man. He also gave us a free DVD and we were so impressed we ordered... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit at Chateau Laniote. The owner of the winery (Arnaud) was clearly very passionate about his wine and he is a wonderful host -- very entertaining! He also took the time to explain his winemaking process, which was a nice addition to the tour. The wine was delicious and I ended up purchasing a few bottles... More
