We 4 adults visited to taste and buy some of the vinyard's wine, which 3 of our party had drank and enjoyed a few days before at a dinner.
The vinyard is in a delightful setting, the buildings are beautiful and the atmosphere is very classy.
There is a nice restaurant to enjoy a quiet drink in, or to have a full meal (if you can afford it!).
Attached to the wine shop is a chic shop full of homeware items.
You can tell that the owners of the estate are Swiss - there is such attention to detail, an air of elegance and luxury abounds.
The staff in the wine shop were very helpful and courteous. They even provided a non-alcoholic drink for the driver in our party!
If you wish to indulge yourself and buy some expensive, lovely wines, this place is a must.

We went for wine tasting and lunch. It was one of the most enjoyable days we have had so far in France. Loved absolutely everything about this place. We would definitely go back.

I took 26 students and adults to France and requested a cultural component on our visit. This is what the travel agent signed us up for. We completed an very informative tour of the winery and wine tasting before being served a sumptuous lunch. It was truly an amazing experience. Even though we toured much of France, many people placed this attraction as the top on their list of favorites in France!

Pretty place open to the public to wander around, pop in their shop, view the sweet intimate chapel eat and drink. However - it’s a bit ‘style over substance’! We arrived about 2.30 knowing the kitchen closes at 3 told we were ‘lucky‘ as we could still have 3 entrees from the little set menu but nothing more. I would honestly say don’t bother. They’re over priced €21 for 3 and of no real discerning flavours let alone substance. The melon was quite literally 6 small melon balls, the artichokes were 2 small hearts on a synthetic tasting sauce. And the third was Indescribable with a raw fish accompaniment. We had to ask for bread which was stale no joke!! , no water was provided as standard and no napkins - yet others (french) seemed to have these things in abundance along with service.
The wine, their own is fair and fair priced at €4 per (small) glass so my recommendation would be go if you’re passing, have a (small) glass of wine or two don’t make a special trip or if you do go at peak lunch service so you are not made to feel like an English inconvenience by the grumpy non attentive staff. Oh and don’t be too hungry!!

We have lunched frequently at the bistrot over the last few years because it's very pleasant to sit under the big plane trees beside the château, the food was inventive and fresh, presented with great attention to the design of each plate, and the wine good (improving year on year).
We went to lunch today in happy expectation. But there is now a very restricted menu - rotisserie chicken, tuna, four or five vegetarian or vegan items… um… that's it. Well, we were there, four of us, so we stayed out of inertia even though we couldn't see anything we particularly wanted to eat. The food was tasteless, and presented as, er, plates of stuff. They do still serve the bread rolls in a brown paper bag, but that's now just an incongruous folly. It is very expensive for what you get. 7€ for a bottle of Pellegrino, 20€ for a single ball of burrata on a bed of tomatoes and green onion, and so on.
All disappointing and we won't go again this year.

We were disappointed to drive out to the Chateau to find that the paths were all gravel and as such not, as a advertised, wheelchair accessible. Perhaps they have an accessible toilet in which case you can go to the restaurant (when it is open). There is no option for visits inside the chateau itself; only gardens are open to the public

What promised to be one of the great moments of the day , turned out to be a complete failure.
The castel could only be seen from the outside, no explanation , nothing
I can not talk about the restaurant because that was not the purpose of our visit
The ladies servicing the shop were well trained , but frankly their training and education did not materialize in sympathy. The wine tasting was protocolar , and for the rest of the little shop, we had to peruse for ourselves. We spend there 45 minutes maximum, the time sufice to decide on the wine we wanted. Quite different from other places of the same nature we visited

After tasting one of the wines at a local restaurant we to, like others before us set out to find the chateau. The wines are mid range to £££, the staff at the wine tasting were knowledgable, friendly and not at all pushy sales people. Then we found the bistro, and spent a fabulous sunny autumn afternoon eating lunch Al fresco ....a bit pricey but as a lovely treat....fabulous.

We were blown away when we entered the gates...this is what we had come to Provence to see! The grounds and buildings are stunning with beautifully manicured gardens, flowers, and STYLE! Bought several delicious wines, olive oils, and tapenades after an informal, but informative tasting in the attractive shop. Visit the boutique upstairs just to see it! What a surprise - it was like an over-the-top Ralph Lauren store ready for photo shoots....designer clothing and chic gifts and furnishings. Wish we had more time to sit outside in the lovely garden at Bistrot Mogador. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT HERE!!!

Asked our concierge for another stop after our drive to Arles and he recommended this winery and restaurant. It was a truly lovely stop if a bit weird. Stopped first at the restaurant and asked if we could be seated. Gentleman told us they were full and could not accomodate us. My wife is a former French teacher and she was taking care of the conversation. Asked her to go back and see how long it might take if we wanted to wait - ready? - 10 minutes! So why not just say that?!

Spent time at a tasting and found the wines all excellent. The buffet lunch was fine - nothing amazing but sitting outside on a beautiful day in Provence as a jazz combo played and drinking the local wine - well, you get the idea! A very worthwhile stop.
