Château Larose Trintaudon

Château Larose Trintaudon has made a concerted effort since 1999 to produce wines of irreproachable quality while paying total respect to the environment. Well-aware of the fragile nature of the terroir, the estate owners have instituted a management system focusing on sustainable development. This led to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and Sustainable Agriculture certification.  Larose Trintaudon is the first European vineyard to be designated as "exemplary" by the Afnor in their 2010 reference document!

Château du Tertre

Located on the highest point in the Margaux appellation, Château du Tertre overlooks a beautiful 80-hectare estate. This noble château is surrounded by magnificently landscaped grounds and epitomises the elegance of the Regency period. The interior decoration reflects Tuscan and Flemish influences and offers guests a warm, refined atmosphere: 5 comfortable rooms with a view over the vineyard. A guided tour of the estate is included in the price.  

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Discovering the world of wine at Château Larrivet Haut Brion can take many forms, and is always unusual and convivial: tasting of young or mature white wines with caviar from Aquitaine or aged cheeses in an "industrial-style" venue, picnicking on the château grounds, enjoying the works of a local artist thanks to the "1 château, 1 artist” program, and "oenofolies” combining wine tasting and unusual locations such as atop a dune overlooking the ocean, in an art gallery, or in a mysterious Parisian cellar...

A unique tasting experience!

Château Gravas

Wine and art in all its forms are inextricably intertwined at Château Gravas. Cultural events, musical performances, and exhibitions take place in every season: "Printemps de Gravelor", an exhibition highlighting the artists of a given country in July, a Christmas market with craftsman, etc. On a more regular basis, the works of the famous painter and sculptor Paul Flickenger have been renewed each spring.

Château de La Dauphine

Château de La Dauphine, nestled in a curve of the Dordogne, is located in the heart of a 40 hectare vineyard that is the second largest in the Fronsac appellation. Beautiful grounds with majestic trees overlook the river and an impressive drive with century-old stone pines offers a sensation of calm and wellbeing that invariably charms visitors. The 18th century manor house is imbued with the spirit of a royal guest, Marie-Josèphe De Saxe, Dauphine de France and mother of King Louis XVI. The woodwork and decoration give visits a unique dimension.
