The cellar
Tasting and authenticity

The Château Malijay welcomes you to its superb wine tasting vault on the garden level, underneath the main body of the eighteenth century château.

In this beautiful room, the château’s former kitchen, you will be able to taste and buy our various vintages. In winter, you will experience our wine in the warmth of a real fire in the authentic monumental fireplace, and in the summer you’ll enjoy the natural cooling of the thick stone walls.

You will also notice a peculiar feature of mansions of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; an ornamentally tiled stone “tray warmer” where, thanks to the small hearths that collected the embers, trays were kept warm or simmered quietly.

If you are impressed by the authenticity and history of the Château Malijay mansion, perhaps you will have a chance to discover the remains of the small twelfth century private chapel.
