Chateau Soutard, Saint-Emilion
(4.3/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Witness the site of an important innovation in winemaking (and taste the fruits of their labor) at Chateau Soutard. The chateau got into the winemaking business in the middle of the 18th century. It was during those early days that Soutard first began implementing the method of planting vineyards in rows. While it's natural today, 300 years ago it was less common. Visitors can tour the vineyard and castle, and taste some of its more popular wines. There's also an opportunity to learn about cooking with wine. Be sure to call ahead for this opportunity--it's available on a limited basis. Make Chateau Soutard part of your personalized Saint-Emilion itinerary using our Saint-Emilion vacation planner.

  • This place is posh, wow. The building and grounds were just immaculate. The wine was very true to the region, lots of acid. Not our favorite but still a great tasting. 
  • Very nice tour with a hostess who was able to give us the history of this vineyard. The place is just beautiful combining modernity and heritage. Technical and historical explanations were exciting, we learned a lot during this visit! Not to be missed.

  • The Chateau is beautifully appointed and quite impressive. I visited with a large group and our guide gave a lovely tour and handled the tasting very well. I thought it was worth the visit.
  • Mediocre. Having never been to a château, we expected to see vines and grapes. Instead, we saw tanks, barrels and more barrels. The guide was nice, but spoke fast, as if rushing through the process. The wine tasting was decent.
