1. Adopt a Vine with the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience

The Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience is a great birthday present idea for all wine lovers that lets your recipient become the adopted owner of some vines for a wine-making year in one of our acclaimed French partner vineyards!  After receiving the Wine Experience gift pack, they will follow all of the key stages at the winery in the making their wine.  They get to choose how they would like to call their vintage, and will receive a personalised bottle of wine for each vine you adopt for them!    

5% reduction for 2 or more Wine Experience Days!

Vine adoption certificate sent by email for last minute gifts

For the more curious, the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience can also be supplemented with one of our Wine Experience Days.  Much more than a typical wine or oenology course, each Wine Experience Day is the perfect opportunity to visit the winery, accompanied by the person of their choice, and to share a privileged moment with the winemakers, to taste the wines from the estate, to look after their adopted vines, to get involved in working in the vineyard and helping to make the wine.
