Dining in pitch darkness, hosted and served by visually impaired people, may change your point of view about many preconceived ideas of the world. As with the original dining in the dark concept, this unique experience will focus and sharpen your senses and enables you to taste a surprising wine & food experience adapted to this unusual context.

Not only will you discover a complete sensory journey, but also a brand new way to socialise.
