Suggested Itinerary

We have listed an example itinerary opposite but this is by no means set in stone. If you are coming to Chateau Lagorce’s Culinary School as a group, we will be delighted to adjust the programme to suit your particular wishes. However, we do feel that the suggested itinerary offers you a perfect mix of lazy time relaxing at the chateau, learning about local food and wine, excursions exploring the local area and all it has to offer … and a few hidden surprises! There are five hands-on cookery lessons, various wine tastings – including a lesson at the Wine School in St. Emilion, a visit to a prestigious chateau, a market visit to purchase the local produce for lunch and various other tastings! We never forget this is your holiday, so every effort is made to ensure that you have the best possible time during your stay!
