The garden was officially opened to the public in 1996 and they now offer educational events, tours, walking trails and yearly egg hunts for Easter. This is also a great stop for anyone who is enjoying a wine tour because it is situated between the Bordeaux and Rhone wine regions, so it would be a nice little pit stop between the two, while you’re there in the gardens make sure to stop by the restaurant on the grounds for some authentic French cuisine to complete your visit.
