Chateau La Dauphine is a property at the heart of the appellation in Canon Fronsac. It dates back to the 16th century, its name is inspired by the visit of wife of the Dauphin of France 'La Dauphine' and the Chateau, built in the 18th century, still reflects all the elegance that you would expect for such a prestigious visitor. Here however, tradition meshes seamlessly with the ultramodern and the owners' wish for visitors to understand the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle and a superb wine/food experience.

Discover wines from all over the word thanks to our tasting sessions during Bordeaux fête le Vin, from June the 23rd to June the 26th.

Of course, receiving a Best Of Wine Tourism  is an award for several years of work aiming at creating innovative and welcoming visit concepts.

For small properties as Château du Payre, it is an opportunity to get promotion locally thanks to the several press releases circulated. A heartwarming highlight, especially as our estate is not situated  in a most touristic area. 

2016 will be a great year, with the opening of the Cité du vin, the Bordeaux Wine Festival, and the European soccer championship in July,  all events creating a very festive atmosphere.

"This label allowed us to communicate widely on all our marketing tools. We then welcomed curious visitors who wanted to know more about us and try our services. On a regular base, this award catches demanding customers, looking for high quality experiences. The Best Of Wine Tourism label is definitely one of the best recognition to highlight tourism operators."
