Looking for gifts, souvenirs and Provençal craft to take home with you?
Jeany Cronk opened her boutique in July 2015 and has impressed visitors with its style and lovely gift ideas. The boutique complements the wine cellar beautifully, so you can combine wine tasting and shopping!
Jeany has carefully chosen local producers of ceramics, art, honey, Provençal cuisine, perfumed candles and fab tealight candle holders.
Didier Romieux is our resident Bordeaux and Burgundy expert and loves sharing a passion for wine. His wine cellar stocks liquid jewels that would not be out of place in Aladdin’s cave, thanks to his personal relationships with top château owners in France.
Groups of 10-12 people can book a private wine tasting Masterclass in his wine cellar with fabulous themes like:
Pairing wine and cheese
Château Miraval, the 3 colours (red, rosé and white)
How to start with Burgundy?
Which wines to pair with pizza?
Magic of Chablis
Rosé wines, which ones to choose and why?
Visiting his wine cellar is a must for any serious (and wannabe) wine collector. Contact him directly to book a private course. When you visit him, also ask about his wine collector’s club called Vinissime…
An inspiring tale of a family following a passion.
Stephen and Jeany Cronk left a comfortable life in London to pursue their dream of making incredible wine in the South of France. Their wine cellar opened in July 2014 on Cours Gambetta, restoring a drab-and-dreary building “La Falaise” into its rightful glory. There are no more traces of its previous life as a car garage, instead they uncovered wine cuves and tunnels from hundreds of years ago when it used to be a winery run by the Penitent Blancs.
Wine tasting is available in the gorgeous wine cellar from Tuesday to Saturday during the busy summer period (opening hours are normally from 10h00 until 20h00). Off season, wine tasting is normally available on Tuesdays (market day) and on demand. If you’d like to organise a private wine tasting for groups of 6 or more, with Stephen or one of his crew, contact them directly via their website or social media accounts.
In July 2015 Jeany opened Mirabeau Maison, her beautiful boutique, adjacent to the wine cellar so you can buy gifts and taste their delicious wine!
Getting ill while you’re travelling or on holiday can be very scary; especially when it’s in a foreign language!
If you find yourself in need of medical care, you can contact our local GP, doctor Christine Biscarat to make an appointment. She can speak a little bit of English. Her rooms are at the entrance of the village, opposite Lou Calen hotel and next the the Cotignac Hostellerie.
