Classic Vineyard Share

A Chateau Feely classic vine share includes:
1. Rent of a set of 6 vines in Chateau Feely’s vineyards for a year and a case of 12 wines for your 1 year of membership to be collected at the Chateau (they can shipped to members in UK/ France at extra cost please email us for details of the price)

‘Thank you so much for making our visit to you so enjoyable’ George and Cherry, UK

The share runs from the purchase date for a full year. The vintages you get lag the year of your share by at least three years because our red wines are released 3 years after vintage. Your wine must be collected or shipped within your year of membership or it expires. Unfortunately we cannot hold wine as the storage and administration is too costly.

We are sold out of white and Hillside red so these are not available anymore.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Vineyard Share

Why are there different options ?

There are share options for collecting from the property (the ‘classic’) but we found many of our shareholders flew since fly-drive was less time consuming and often cheaper than ferry-drive so we created the ‘delivered’ half-case Voyager option for European shareholders (although if you are driving and stocking up on wine the tax savings can pay for your trip).

How do I add shipping to the classic wine share?

Shipping doesn’t come automatically with the ‘classic’ share as many people collect or wait to see if they are able to collect then organise shipping later if necessary. If you want to ship please email us.

When are the events ?

We run two events for shareholders. Shareholders can visit us and their row at any time (with a few days notice to make sure one of us is available). You are welcome to stay on in the area and organize activities like a wine class or visit to St Emilion with Caro to complement the day (see details of Caro’s tours and classes at www.frenchwineadventures.com ).

Our Harvest weekend is the first weekend of October. Harvest Day is on the Saturday.

How much does the Harvest weekend cost ?

The harvest day is free for shareholders. The dinner is €60 per person. We also offer optional extras like a walk in the vineyard with gourmet lunch on the Sunday and a visit to St Emilion grand crus on the Monday with lunch in St Emilion village so those who can stay and are interested in Bordeaux wines can make the most of the trip. Email caro@feelywines.com for details.

Where do we stay?

There is great B&B accommodation in walking distance and a little further from around €90 per night for 2 sharing.

The places we recommend to stay are (please tell them you came on our recommendation):

Our own self-catering holiday houses: the Gites at Chateau Feely

www.laqueyssie.com a super place an easy walk from us.

We have options on five gites easy walking distance from us for the weekend (sleeping 2 to 10 people). If you are interested in booking into one of these and happy to share a house with others that are booking for our harvest weekend please let us know. Email caro@feelywines.com for details.

What is the deadline for collecting our wine ?

Within the year of your vineshare. We cannot hold stock beyond this period for space and admin/ accounting reasons.

Do we get the wine that we have picked ?

No, you get the most recently bottled vintages. There is a lag at least 3 years for our red wines and its impractical to wait. The good news is you can drink what you pick if you renew! Shareholders that have renewed each year are drinking several vintages that they helped make

Can I give the share to a couple ?

Absolutely – our shares can be for a couple. In fact many are given as wedding gifts. If it’s for a single person they can attend events with their partner as our invitations are for the shareholder and partner.

How far is Cherbourg or Le-havre from Saussignac ?

About 8 hours drive.
