  • Come with friends discover the area, was warmly welcomed by Charly who guided us through the different times of the vinification carried out at the Castle. The visit is very educational in a beautiful renovated setting. A tasting came the round: a time very friendly without judgment or didactic discourse, but in feeling and sharing.

  • Nice chateau in Saint Émilion to go for a short, basic visit.
  • Awesome place, a castle fully renovated inside, perfect for dinner and wine tasting. Charm atmosphere but keeping the heritage taste of an old country house
  • Best wine tour - Helene is lovely
  • The sommelier was nice for the tour but a bit too quick maybe. Differently from other châteaux we payed the visit for 10 euros. The wine tasting at the end was pleasant and the sommelier explained us how to drink and evaluate wine. That was really appreciated. The wine bottle maybe a bit expensive. The château is big and nice and now under some travel to improve it for visitors.
  • Attended a fabulous concert here, Ishay Shaer pianist, beautiful setting close to Saint Emilion. Set in the tasting room with the opportunity to talk to the pianist and the owner after the concert. Ample quantities of Chateau de Ferrand wine flowing made for a memorable evening!
