DISCOVER THE FAMILY WINERY DANJOU-BANESSY
sunday october 25th 2020 FROM 10:30 AM
Passionate winemakers, Benoît and Sébastien Danjou have taken over the family winery in the early 2000s. The family property is located in Espira-de-l’Agly, a small village near the Pyrenees Mountains and the Cathars coasts. There, the Danjou brothers grow their vines in the most natural way possible.
The estate is composed of 17 hectares of vineyards and about thirty forests, fields, fallow-land. It has a collection of carefully tended and guided old vines, grown with a hands-off approach to produce the finest, most powerful and representative wines of the region.
Conducted with a respectful method, the production pays particular attention to its environment: biodynamic soil cultivation, reforestation, diversification of the vegetation around the vineyards...
Sharing a lot of similarities with La Chassagnette’s philosophy, we are delighted to welcome Benoît and Sébastien Danjou for a wine-tasting masterclass, followed by a gourmet menu with sublime wine pairings.
