Visit the Chateau
Please book ahead if you would like to come to the Château to buy or taste some wine.
Visits and wine tasting
From May to September, Monday to Friday: 11am tour, 11.30am tasting. Please book in advance, and places are limited.
A guided tour, in English, of the vines and the winery at 11am will be followed by a tasting of 6 wines at 11.30am. The tour and tasting costs €15 per person and the tasting only, without the tour, is €10. Well behaved children for €5 for the tour (then water not wine, we’d suggest). Allow an hour and a half for the whole package, and you are welcome to buy some wine at the end of the tasting.
If you simply want to buy some wine, let us know ahead what time you'd like to come. Prices for our whites, red, rosé and sparkling wines range from €7 to €15 per bottle at the cellar door and for pre-orders from our Calais depot. For orders placed at the Château to be delivered in the UK (for example, if you're flown over with hand luggage only), prices will be at the sterling rates shown on this site because of higher duty in the UK, plus shipping and delivery.
We are 15 miles SE of the city of Bordeaux, at the end of Rue Bauduc, Créon 33670. You should find this on Google Maps, GPS etc. Come down the tree-lined drive and go straight ahead, past the pond. The tasting room is the first door on the right. If we're not there, call or text us as above.
Local places to eat
We recommend a local restaurant in the main square in Créon, called La Table (tel. +33 5 56 42 98 40). La Table is open from 12 noon to 1.45pm, except Mondays, and for dinner.
There's a sandwich bar next to La Table and a creperie, and a good café, nearby in the square. Closer still, there's an excellent bakery called Le Fournil de Créon near the end of our road, which is open from 7am to 8pm, 7 days a week. You can choose from a selection of sandwich fillings and styles of bread. There's a reasonable restaurant and pizzeria next door. There's a Carrefour on the edge of town and if you're, ahem, traveling with kids, a McDo. There's also a new Bistro Regent off the roundabout opposite Carrefour.
If you're heading to the famous wine village of St-Emilion or the fabulous city of Bordeaux, allow half an hour's drive, plus time to park up.
