Experience - Cheval Blanc vineyard tour
Anyone who loves wine should visit a vineyard at least once in their lifetime. Anyone who craves to know more about their beloved red wines, should make a pilgrimage to Bordeaux at least once in their lifetime. We have recently been honoured to visit Cheval Blanc, and what a day we spent there! Cheval Blanc is one of the Bordeaux greatest wines, and it is only one of four in Saint-Emilion classified as Premiere Cru Classe A.
Cheval Blanc has gained a great fame, and many put it next to the greatest labels of the left bank, and with that fame money came in. With the money, the owners of the chateau created state of the art modern wine cellar. The minimalistic interiors, concrete vats, clean lines and impeccable functionality was appreciated by many architects around the world. The chateau is now listed on the Unesco World Heritage site.
We were offered unforgettable meal on the premises, but we are aware these things are not offered to anyone. If you are within the industry and have a visit in plans, talk to your wine supplier to hook you up. If you are an enthusiast, don‘t feel left behind, as most of the Bordeaux wine makers do offer private tours of their facilities. Check this quick guide on how to organise yourself well when in Bordeaux.
