Chateau Feely, Terroir Feely is 1 hr 30 drive from Bordeaux airport (direct flights from Ireland, UK, Paris etc) and 15 minutes by car from Bergerac airport (direct flights from the UK). The ferry ports are an 8-10 hour drive away.
How to order and options can be found at the top of this page.
Why are there different options?
There are share options for collecting from the property (the 'classic') but we found many of our Irish 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 options?
Shipping doesn’t come automatically with the 'classic' options as many people collect or wait to see if they are able to collect then organise shipping later if necessary. If you know you want it shipped it's a good idea to do it immediately as this will guarantee it a place on our next delivery. With the paypal screen open with your vine share already in the cart click through to:
Classic vines share delivery options and click on the delivery you want - this should automatically add the delivery to your cart. Sometimes the original paypal page with only the share will still be open so, to avoid confusion, close it before proceeding on your paypal page that has the share and the shipping on it.
If you already paid for the share and want to organise shipping then click the link above, select the delivery you want then proceed through the steps with paypal.
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 organise activities like a wine class or visit to St Emilion with Caroline to complement the day (see details of Caroline 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 in the castle is €50 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 email@example.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 (ie €45pp).

What is the deadline for collecting our wine?
Within the year of your share (but if you want to arrange with us to collect a few months later please contact us). If we don’t hear from you within a year of the expiry of your share your case of wine will no longer be available as we cannot hold stock beyond this period for space and accounting reasons.
Do we get the wine that we have picked?
No, you get the most recently bottled vintage. There is a lag of 2-3 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 renew 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.
