The eye-catching architecture of Château La Croizille’s new cellar is located in the heart of Saint-Emilion. The cellar also houses a magnificent reception room in the stylish modern building, which can accommodate up to 100 people. Private or professional events (receptions, group lunches or dinners, conferences, etc) can be combined with a cellar visit and tasting. The reception room enjoys exceptional views over the vineyards and the Dordogne River. The tasting area has been designed like a promontory, giving visitors the impression of being suspended over the landscape.
Château Couhins is located within easy reach of the city of Bordeaux. Since 1968 it has been both the property and showcase of the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA). The estate has enabled the Institute to implement innovative vine cultivation and wine-making practices in order to produce high quality wines with low environmental impact. This approach can be highlighted and explained on site to operators in the wine sector and non-professional enthusiasts alike.
Château du Payre proposes an interactive and innovative visit, designed for adults and children alike.

With the aid of a smartphone or touch tablet, visitors can scan the QR Codes on the signposts using a free application, and access information about the château’s history and the activity of a professional wine grower.
Art, poetry and wine have blended together harmoniously at Château Chasse-Spleen for almost 2 centuries. The estate is currently home to an original collection of contemporary works of art, which are exhibited both inside and outside the château. A world of artistic surprises awaits visitors on the walk from the garden and through the barrel cellar to the tasting table. These temporary or permanent contemporary art exhibitions are set in creatively planted grounds, which include one hundred year-old trees and sculpted shrubs.
