A Unique Experience

Domaine du Grand Mayne has created a unique opportunity for you to make your own personal wine vintage at the Grand Mayne winery.

Staying in our beautiful villa in the Côtes de Duras, you and your guests (up to 12 people) will work with our master winemaker Mathieu Crosnier to create your personal very special wine.

Under Mathieu’s expert guidance you will blend a barrel of wine (300 bottles) from the very best wines currently in the Grand Mayne barrel cellar. Your unique barrel of wine will be bottled the following year complete with personalized labels to your design.

What’s involved?
It’s a three-day weekend event where you will taste extensively from the range of wines available for your blend. You’ll also do tastings of different vintages of Grand Mayne wines across the range of whites and reds.

Mathieu will take you through the theory and practice of wine blending, so that by the end of the weekend you will be clear as to how to incorporate your preferred styles and flavours. Your preferences will be reflected in the barrel of wine you create at the end of the weekend. You will also understand the effects of the mosaic of terroir and the vintages on our wines.

As well as spending some time designing your personalised label, you can determine how much time you set aside to relax and enjoy the house or explore the local area.

How much?
The price for the long weekend’s accommodation and 300 bottles of wine is €6000 (inc VAT). So it’s only €20 per bottle.

A long weekend (3 days) in November for reds and March for whites, dates to suit you and Mathieu.

That’s up to you. The house has six bedrooms (5 with en suite), three doubles and three twins. Why not get a group of friends together!

When can we drink our wine?
Your wine will be bottled in April (reds), and October (whites) and will be available for drinking soon after. But our recommendation will be to take your time. If kept properly, the wine should improve for years to come, depending on the style of wine you choose to create.

How do we get our wine home?
The price includes delivery of your bottles to our warehouse in Calais, where you can currently collect the wine without payment of UK duty. Alternatively we can arrange to deliver the wine to UK addresses at an extra cost per bottle depending on current UK duty and transport costs.
