"Atelier du Vin"

"Oenological dinners
or stays to discover
the wines and enjoy allthe Château de Curzay's charms..."


 Located on an old cretaceous atoll, the grounds of this vineyard are made of acids; they are rich in argillaceaous flint and sandstone with strong contents of minerals and locally calcareous. This specific ground allows the cultivation of four different grapes: Cabernet, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

In Poitou, and more precisely in Marigny-Brizay, the visitor will have the opportunity to discover a local wine:
the Ampélidae.


This charming town could have been known for its salt trade, but today it is by its own brandy, the COGNAC that gives the town an international aura.

The COGNAC History :

 From the 17th Century, so as to travel under the best conditions by boat, people from Cognac had the idea to use a double distillation to an alcohol they were already producing. At the origin, this alcohol, stored in oak barrels, was to be diluted later. It is by chance that they discoverd that pure, this Brandy improved with time while in contact with oak; it is thus that they started to drink it and named it "COGNAC".
