Wine houses

Ideal to familiarise the public with the vineyards, besides their tasting vaults at Duras (Lot-et-Garonne) , “the keys to the vineyard”  is a fun and feeling introduction to the role of the local land and its grape varieties. Same thing at Estaing (Aveyron) with the permanent exhibition “Oh my vine”.
