ART and WINE the perfect partnership
For those of you that have a passion for the finer things in life, we are proud to launch our series of "Art and Wine" days in conjunction with our neighbours Paul and Kirstie at "Chateau La Tour de Chollet", a family run organic Chateau situated just across the vines from Le Peyrail.
This is a unique opportunity for you to see, sketch and paint the beauty of the vines and the surrounding countryside.
Paul and Kirstie will give you an insight into the life of the grape from "bud to bottle".
You can sip whilst you sketch and will have the opportunity to purchase beautiful Organic wines at great prices.
Choose your Subject
After a tour of the Chateau you can decide what inspires you individually, or you can create a masterpiece as a team ....
You will have your own easel, paints and comfortable sketching chair and I will be on site to help and advise you throughout the day.
You will be provided with a picnic lunch of freshly baked baguettes and local Cheeses and Charcuterie and of course liquid refreshments throughout the day. Chateau Cholet is within walking distance of Le Peyrail.
Choose your Medium
you can paint in whatever medium suits your style, though for a "team piece" it may be better to stay within the same medium for a coherent result
For the passionate Connoisseurs of Art and Wine why not follow all the four seasons and enrol on our
"Life of the Vine " four week Art and Wine Course ?
The four weeks are spread across the seasons, so you can follow your favourite wine from "bud to bottle ". You will be able to experience the beauty of the changing seasons and marvel at the never ending circle of life of the vines, which we see unfolding around us year after year.
You will be able to capture all this on canvas, paper, or even wood panel to create your own artistic "Oeuvre," with the chance of an end of year exhibition hosted at our own in house Gallery.
