Winery / Vineyard
Tour Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte to see how its eponymous wine is produced and sample the Grand Cru Classé for yourself. The estate dates back to the 14th century with Verrier Du Boscq, who planted vines on a gravelly plateau named Lafitte in 1365. In 1720, Scotsman Georges Smith bought the estate and added his name. Today the vineyard covers 67 hectares (170 acres) and offers tours of its 16th-century tower and cellar, as well as tastings of its wines.

  • Beyond the high quality of the wines, the Winery is superb! A visit not to be missed for the pleasure of the eyes and the taste buds.

  • I went to visit the Castle as part of my honeymoon in September 2016. I had prepared me even a day tour with 4 vineyards (Sauternes, Graves 2 2). I made the mistake of booking the tour "Road to Paradise" on the website, without reading the fine print. This visit is indicated at 39 euros per person, and underneath it is stated that the price is valid for groups of 5 people and more. Otherwise it's a fixed price of 150 euros. So we were two, my husband and I and we were loaded 150 euros for a private tour, with a lady who at the beginning was cold and somewhat condescending in showing us the field. The visit appears to be made to praise the owners family and their wealth. The area is of course very luxurious. However, the final is a tasting of two wines, one white and one red, very young (we were served, 2012 for a wine of this quality, which leaves not really a chance to taste it to its full potential), then a quick visit in the owner's private cellar. For 150 euros, I expect more. We reach the castle of Yquem, or for 120 euros we had a private visit by a friendly and warm, their magnificent field guide, then a very generous portion of their white wine tasting, and a glass of chateau D'yquem. Moral of the story: read the terms of the visits. If you have 150 euros too go somewhere else, and if you like Sauternes and you want a guided private and upscale, I strongly advise you Yquem. If you want at any price do you brag about and spread the riches of an owner, go rather Bernard Magrez at the Château Pape Clément, it's much cheaper and at least there is a more friendly atmosphere, with a collection of millennial olive trees and a canopy of Gustave Eiffel.

  • Beautiful winery. The dinner they hosted for us was awesome.
  • Very interesting visit of the Castle; too bad not having the opportunity also to take a look at the new "stealth" cellars below.
