Two Best Of Bordeaux Wine Tourism awards have justly compensated the dedication of the new team in bringing Château Soutard back to the elegance, deserving of its classified status. The first, in 2012, was for the architecture - hardly surprising given the beautiful gravity fed cellars created by architect Fabien Pédelaborde. As well as being an efficient working cellar it is a showcase for both the history of the property and the unique limestone terroir of the plateau of Saint Emilion on which the vineyard is situated.
Their latest award was for Wine Tourism Services, highlighting how they have put this newly renovated facility to excellent use, opening it up to visitors in so many ways.
On the second weekend in August the Oppenheim wine festival takes place. Wine and culinary treats around the historical town hall as well as a diverse music programme are fixed elements of the festival which is celebrated each year by the idyllic town and renowned wine-growing district with its famous vineyard location along the Rhine in the midst of medieval town walls. Friday till Monday evening wine enjoyment in front of Saint Catherine’s Church is focused on.
Location: Around the historical town hall, D-55276 Oppenheim
