The Park

An incredible journey into the world of vines and wine.

The Hameau Dubœuf is the first theme park on the vine and wine in Europe, unique in its kind. It reveals in a playful, educational and immersive way all that the vine and the wine are to our heritage.

This theme park is for amateurs, connoisseurs, tribes as well as families.

Over 30,000 m2 and 40 themes, throughout the day, visitors will wander from exhibition rooms, with 3,000 collection objects from the regional wine heritage, to interactive shows, with an extraordinary flight over the Beaujolais and Mâconnais landscapes, then an immersive experience in the cellar of a winegrower who will tell them about the history of the vineyard, thanks to a time machine. The little train will transport the visitors for a last technical meeting in a real vinification center, followed by an olfactory walk and a ride in a rosalie through our aromatic gardens.

An extraordinary experience that will seduce the curious and delight the most knowledgeable.

After having shared with our visitors the secrets and the backstage of the universe of the vine and the wine, the history of its women and its men who made the vineyard and who continue to write it, the invitation to the tasting will be borrowed from all these marvelous experiences.
