Florence and I went to Cheval Blanc to accompany a Welsh architect and her husband who wanted to visit the new cellar. It has been attracting a great deal of visitors for its aesthetics and its design appeals to various kinds of people, not just wine lovers, but also people interested in art and culture, who may find through this way interest in Cheval Blanc. This is relevant for all of us.
The cellar is already
more than a year old and ages very well. The vegetation on the roof is
remarkable, the sun softened the colors of material, the place is impressive
and the vinification cellars still aesthetic, especially the barrel cellar, which
has the perfect condition: AC, humidity, aromas, the best.
At Valandraud, our “hotel”
venture is starting to work thanks to reservation websites, word of mouth from
customers who already experienced the place and customer from our list, friends,
acquaintances, neighbors. Our rates are very reasonable for the services
offered. Along with our wine shops, this is growing to become a significant part
of our business.
