Nice wine tasting, the people we're very friendly and helpful. The wines were all very nice and perfectly served. Its a very nice place, historic and relaxing.

Great wine tasting at Chamonix. The wines were tasted were excellent and top quality. The lady, Denise was excellent and knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommended tasting. Make sure you taste and buy a bottle of the 2009 chardonnay!
