Bordeaux

The 14th Best Of Wine Tourism event rewarded Bordeaux region’s top wine tourism locations. No fewer than 22 trophies were awarded, 7 of them Gold. The 2017 awards were presented on 18 October at Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Chateau Coutet is right at the heart of the historical centre of Saint Emilion, part of the classification from 1955-85. It is surrounded by other classified growths on the south and south-westerly facing limestone slopes and plateau of the appellation.

An historical vineyard in so many ways, the preservation of the natural environment that this history has allowed is what earned the property its Great Wine Capitals award for sustainability in 2016, a Best Of Wine Tourism in the category “Sustainable Wine Tourism practices”.

It's not really that surprising that Chateau Lynch Bages was announced as Best of Wine Tourism Grand prizewinner for France, despite the stiff competition. The owner, Jean-Michel Cazes, has been welcoming visitors to his family estate ever since he took over in 1975. He was a pioneer of wine tourism - long before the phrase was invented.

130,000 visitors since June, when the beautiful Cité du Vin opened to public!

Bordeaux Wine Festival 2016: Great Wine Capitals, guests of honor!

Château Soutard

Château Soutard offers all year long a collection of “à la carte” visits, enabling visitors to take their time and fully absorb the magic of the place: become a winemaker for a few hours,  follow a gastronomical recipe with the Chef that will match the finest wine, biking tour in the vineyard or even discover the unique UNESCO heritage of Saint-Emilion. The spectacular winery, the barrel cellars and the orangery are must-do visits. The Château is also a perfect setting for hosting corporate events such as seminars.

 

Château d'Agassac

Situated inside the magical setting of Château d’Agassac, the restaurant La Table d’Agassac opened its doors in June 2015. In a chic and relaxed atmosphere, guests enjoy a  bistronomic cuisine served in the The Renaissance style reception rooms of the Château or on the beautiful terrace overlooking the moat. This “wine restaurant” is runned by Giovanni Curcio, a famous international sommelier who aims to build a strong gastronomic identity around wine. The concept? A “surprise”menus that changes daily with the season and expertly prepared wine & food pairings.

Château Feely

One hour away from Bordeaux, in the beautiful setting of an organic and biodynamic vineyard overlooking the Dordogne Valley, Château Feely offers 2 luxury eco-conscious cottages dating from the 18th century. The ideal place for a nature-rich holiday. A strong ecological spirit guided the restoration of the Wine Lodge and the Wine Cottage, with a special care given to every detail : use of natural lighting, noble material, organic paint...Fully in tune with this philosophy, guests never forget to give the organic waste to their feathered friends...
