Vineyards have been planted here since 1466. When acquired by Bernard Magrez in 1999, a complete restoration was undertaken to preserve its period style. The generous single floor mansion slumbers down a deep gravel drive, flanked by stately topiary gardens. A long terrace overlooks 300-year-old tulip trees and an infinite expanse of vines, which stretch out over 58 hectares. Guests can take a stroll around this vast estate to take in the wonderful view and architecture.
What is a wine tour without wine tasting? The vineyard is planted with 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. One of the five cellars there, brimming with 900 barrels of resting wine, features bottles from 1871. You know that the older the wine, the better the taste.
You can also have a picnic at the beautiful setting of Chateau Fombrauge complete with a picnic basket from the estate including with an assortment of cold meats and cheeses, fresh vegetables and fruits, and a glass of wine, red or white, according to your preference.
If one day is not enough to marvel at this mansion, you can stay overnight at the prestigious suites. Fine dining in the vast dining room is available where you can enjoy the unique view of the vineyards, whilst being served lunch or dinner by a dedicated chef and butler.
