To find out more

Via Sensoria is a soothing experience, a sensory interlude where four artistic universes echo surprising tastings of wines from four regions of the world or non-alcoholic drinks, combined with visual, sound and poetic creations.

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

The experience takes place over an hour, accompanied by a wine expert.

Whether you're a beginner or a novice, a wine lover or not, adults and children alike can get to grips with this journey which, far from the conventional codes of wine tasting, offers surprising combinations of artistic environments and a selection of wines from around the world and non-alcoholic beverages.

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

For its first edition, Via Sensoria takes you on a journey to the rhythm of the seasons, with a relaxing offer that's resolutely turned towards nature. From dawn to dusk, take a day-long journey through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
