Frequently asked questions of the Atelier Oeno'ludique
Here you will find the most frequently asked questions relating to our Workshops.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any other question.
Is there an age limit for participating in an Oeno'ludique Workshop?
For the Initiation Workshops, anyone of legal drinking age (16) is welcome. They are suitable for everyone, whatever your age.
For the Animation Workshops, even children or people who do not consume alcohol can participate. It is enough to warn us at least 3 days before. However, we recommend a minimum age of 5 years. Before this age, children have less vocabulary. Please note: no drop of wine will be served to children under 16, even accompanied by their parents.
I am not a wine connoisseur, can I participate in the Workshops?
Our "Discovery & Initiation to Wine Tasting" Workshops are made for anyone wishing to learn more about their senses and about wine. Both beginners and initiates are welcome.
Our Animation Workshops are accessible to all and are classified by level of difficulty.
Where do our Workshops and Animations take place?
The Initiation Workshops take place in Lavaux (Riex) in places steeped in winegrowing history or outdoors with a view of the vineyard if the weather permits. These Workshops can also be privatized at the location of your choice. We travel throughout Switzerland.
Our Animation Workshops can take place according to your request with our partner winegrowers depending on room availability. They can also be done at home, in a room you have chosen or in a restaurant. The principle of L'ATELIER Oeno'ludique is to be itinerant, take advantage of it.
I received a gift voucher, how can I attend a Workshop?
You just need to register here . You can also subscribe to our newsletter to receive new dates regularly.
Who will be our facilitator during the Workshops?
Constance, an oenologist by training and working on a family estate in Lavaux, will be present at all events except in exceptional cases (illness, last-minute prevention, etc.).
For events with more than 25 people, Constance has to call on other professionals (winegrowers, oenologists, sommeliers or people trained in-house) to ensure the smooth running and interactions with the participants.
