The newly built regional wine association building in the heart of the vineyards in Apremont has opened an 'Oenothèque' to showcase its producers' wines. A really light space with innovative interior design of wood and copper, and a view to vineyards and mountains, it stocks three wines from each of around 60 producers across the region. Several wines are avaialble for tasting on a rotating basis, and if you plan to buy, then they are usually willing to open any other bottles within reason. The wines are sold at cellar-door prices, so this is an ideal place to go if you are short of time.

Useful information: Open all year Monday-Friday 14.30-18.00, but if you go there in the morning, there is usually someone who will open up for you. In July/August open Tuesday - Saturday 10.00-13.00 and 16.00-19.00.
