Award winning De Beaurepaire Wines in Rylstone, NSW has celebrated its official re-opening following Covid-19; and done so in style, showcasing a new-look cellar door and premium wine experiences.
In two 170-year old converted stables, De Beaurepaire Wines’ new-look cellar door offers private, seated experience areas where guests enjoy intimate and knowledgeable wine experiences with members of the de Beaurepaire family. Their premium wine experiences (Explore and Immerse) showcase the family’s single vineyard French-style wines and are available Wednesday to Sunday between 11am and 5pm. Bookings are highly recommended.
“With the current hold on international travel, our wine experiences offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy their joie de vin and savour a taste of France right here in NSW” said Amanda de Beaurepaire
De Beaurepaire Wines also offers two special experiences on Saturdays: Vigneron Experience and Sparkling Affair. Bookings are essential for special experiences.
The Vigneron Experience offers guests the opportunity to join Richard & Amanda de Beaurepaire on a guided vineyard walk to explore where their grapes are grown and discuss how terroir drives their wine styles. Guests then enjoy a private wine experience which showcases the de Beaurepaire family’s French-style wines and explores how their ‘Burgundian’ terroir expresses itself in their award-winning wines.
“The French believe that 90% of French wine is determined by what happens in the vineyard. This is why we enjoy sharing the Vigneron Experience with our guests – it showcases De Beaurepaire Wines as a whole, from grape to glass” said Richard de Beaurepaire
The Sparkling Affair is designed for guests who prefer premium Sparkling and share a love for exceptional Methode Traditionelle Sparkling. As part of the Sparkling Affair, guests delight in a special flight of three De Beaurepaire French-style Sparkling wines paired with delicious canapes; either served on the lawns or inside the cellar door.
