Cave du Marmandais
The Cave du Marmandais represents no less than 95% of the volume of the appellation and a dozen vintages to be tasted in one of the two cellars in Cocumont or on the other bank of the Garonne, in Beaupuy.After the tasting, she proposes to her visitors a small tour with Jeannot, the white combi with red interior.
We cross the vineyard by way of the Château de Beaulieu, whose vines have recently been taken over by the winery, and we stop to admire the magnificent panorama under a centuries-old oak tree.The winery also organizes “bop aperitifs”, gourmet markets three times a summer with deckchairs and concerts (glass at 2 $, bottle at 10 $) and aperitif-theatres in winter, in a room near the Beaupuy site, with tasting on the barrels before the improvisation show.Bicycle hire by the day (7 $).ride with Jeannot, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am and 3 pm on reservation.
Domaine Elian Da Ros
Elian is an outstanding winemaker and without a doubt the main architect of the rebirth of the Côtes-du-Marmandais appellation, on the family land where he returned to settle twenty years ago, working his vines organically and then biodynamically.
With his wife, Sandrine, they are among the best ambassadors of the abouriou, an indigenous grape variety used in several wines in the range, including the juicy and vibrant Le Vin est une fête, l’elegant and deep Clos Baquey, and the surprising Outre Rouge at 85% abouriou, summer red or winter rosé, with a dashing and floral clairet colour (10 $).Tasting by appointment.

The beautiful architect’s building offers a lovely view at sunrise over the surrounding hills.The modern and comfortable house belongs to a Belgian couple, great lovers of wine and gastronomy, which explains the beautifully equipped kitchen, a wine cellar in the basement, specialized magazines a whole collection of “Terre de vins” and prestigious (but bustling) bottles on the shelves.
