Come & stay with us

We’re keen to attract as many people as we can to visit the vineyard, and there’s no better way than staying in the vineyard properties which are great for holidays for groups of 2 to 12.

We can arrange all sorts of activities including cookery lessons, hot air balloon flights, golf and horse riding to fill in the time between tasting the wines and relaxing around the pool.

There are still weeks and half weeks available this year, and we’re booking in to 2019 with discounts available at La Maison for smaller parties. Shareholders and customers will always enjoy priority booking but we’re also now releasing dates to a number of new agencies, so please contact Richard on 01256 772898 to book your stay as we want to give you priority. You can see availability and prices here.

2017 Vintage Tastings

Winemaker, Mathieu Crosnier, will be in the UK for each of the tastings of our (fabulous!) new vintages which will be on the evenings of 30th May in Bristol, 31st May in London and 1st June in Oxford.  As in previous years there will be plenty of opportunity to taste the new vintages and find out more about how things are progressing in the business at each of these events. You can access full details of all events here.

Pruning in the snow

It’s cold, it takes weeks and weeks for the team in the cold and wet, but it’s really important to get right because the making of great wines starts here each year!

At Domaine du Grand Mayne we have different grape varieties, a mosaic of soils and vines of different ages. It’s great for the end product but as a result we have to adapt the type of pruning and training:-

-“La taille en Guyot” works well where we need to help the quantity of grapes per vine which is important for us on some terroir without a lot of vigour.

-“La taille en Cordon”is very good to control the yield and reduce the production to be sure to have very good grapes with even maturation.
