Distributor Winery Trip 2023

Our guests visited Maison Lorgeril in southern France, Domaines Albert Bichot in Burgundy, Champagne Mandois in Pierry, and Joseph Mellot in Loire.

About This Event

Our seven-day trip this year included an incentive for RNDC executives to explore the wineries in our portfolio.

Our guests visited Maison Lorgeril in southern France, Domaines Albert Bichot in Burgundy, Champagne Mandois in Pierry, and Joseph Mellot in Loire.

In southern France, our guests were welcomed at the Chateau de Pennautier, visited the medieval cities of Carcassonne and Minerve, and toured the vineyards of Chateau de Ciffre.

Next, our guests traveled to Beaune, where they spend two days with Domaines Albert Bichot. They enjoyed vineyard tours and wine tastings of major regions:

  • Beaujolais
  • Maconnais
  • Côte de Beaune
  • Côte de Nuits
  • Chablis

They enjoyed a relaxing BBQ and petanque tournament in the evening before departing for the next region – Champagne.

Our guests were welcomed at the Royal Champagne, with a breathtaking view of the vineyards, and a private dinner at La Bellevue. Our guests spent one day strolling the vineyards, speaking in the sky on tethered hot air balloons, and a traditional demonstration of swording champagne and on-the-fly disgorging.

The last stop of the trip was an exclusive visit to Joseph Mellot in Loire. Joseph Mellot the newest producer added to our portfolio, is located in Sancerre, where our guests enjoyed a tour, vineyard picnic, cellar testing, and boating down the Loire river. The perfect ending to the exciting seven-day trip.
