  • Blend your own Wine at a Grand Cru Classé Château

Bordeaux has long been a top destination amongst wine lovers, but this in 2017 we offer something exciting and new! Staying for two nights at the boutique hotel on site of the Château, you’ll enjoy a picnic in the picturesque vineyards as well as having the opportunity to visit the estate and cellars! And after that, the best part of the trip- creating your own blend; forming a personal bottle of your own unique wine to take home. The question is, do you save it to mature, or drink it straight away? The choice is yours, but this is certain to be an unforgettable experience.
