Via Sensoria, a Sensory tasting journey

Via Sensoria is a relaxing experience, a sensory interlude in which 4 immersive and dreamlike spaces mirror 4 surprising tastings of world wine or non-alcoholic beverages, combined with visual, sound and poetic creations.

This is not a tasting workshop, nor a traditional exhibition or an immersive exhibition. It is a unique sensory experience!

The visit takes place over an hour, accompanied by an animator-sommelier.

From complete novices to wine-lovers and true connoisseurs, adults or children, there is something for everyone in this experience which takes visitors off the traditional wine-tasting track to offer fascinating pairings between artistic atmospheres and a selection of wines from around the world and alcohol-free beverages.

Six original poems, specially created for this experience, also punctuate the route, to complete this dreamlike work.

The first edition of Via Sensoria, As the seasons pass, take visitors on an immersion in nature. From sunrise to sunset, we experience a spring, summer, autumn and winter day from a new perspective.
