The great wine route

The wines of Bordeaux Metropole :

45kms from the campsite Aux Couleurs du Ferret, discover the wines of Bordeaux Metropole and in particular the Pessac Léognan appellation.

There are ten or so estates, including a Bordeaux monument, Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion. Under this appellation, you will also find the well-known Château Pape Clément in Pessac.

 

Blaye and Bourg :

From the town of Blaye, wine-tourism cruises allow you to visit the islands of the estuary.

The military citadel of Blaye, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the symbolic gateway to the region and its wine and cultural treasures.

Saint Emilion, Pomerol, Fronsac :

Listed as a World Heritage Site, the wine-growing and cultural landscapes of Saint Emilion, together with the neighbouring appellations of Pomerol and Fronsac, form an exceptional group of AOCs and historical sites, which mark out one of the most mythical wine routes of Bordeaux.

The Saint Emilion vineyard counts more than 900 winegrowers. Among them, you will find the very famous Château Cheval Blanc or Château Angélus.

 

L’Entre Deux Mers :

The Entre-Deux-Mers is the most extensive wine region of Bordeaux.
On 7,000 hectares, 17 AOCs are produced. Among them are dry and sweet whites (blends of Sauvignon and Semillon grapes), reds (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon), rosés, Clairets, as well as Crémants and a spirit: Fine de Bordeaux.

Graves and Sauternes:

It is in the Graves, south of Bordeaux, that the first vines of the Bordeaux vineyard were planted over 2000 years ago.

Stop off at Château de Montesquieu and enjoy a unique experience in the vineyard. Vary the pleasures: the power of the reds, the delicacy of the dry whites, or the flamboyant side of the sweet Sauternes wines. Picturesque and bucolic as you wish.

 

Le Médoc :

Cru Artisan or Cave coopérative, prestigious grand château or small family property, grand cru classified in 1855, come and explore some of the thousands of wine estates in the heart of the Médoc, spread over 16,000 hectares and 8 appellations (Médoc, Moulis, Haut-Médoc, Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe and Listrac). The Médoc wine route is less than an hour from the campsite and Bordeaux.
