Visit the Chateau

Do get in touch if you would like to buy some wine from us at 'the cellar door'. (Updated for Summer 2022.)

You can taste before you buy although any wine tastings are by appointment. If you're a regular customer, come and say hello - again, with some advance notice please!

Cellar door sales

Do let us know when you would like to come, preferably Monday to Friday, though weekends might be possible for collections of 12 or more bottles. With some notice, we can open a bottle or two if you want to try before you buy, though see 'wine tastings' below.

Email gavin@bauduc.com and/or angela@bauduc.com
WhatsApp, text or call Gavin on 00 33 6 42 32 98 53
or Angela on 00 33 6 50 10 85 21

Prices for our whites, red, rosé and sparkling wines range from €7.50 to €16 per bottle at the cellar door. For orders placed at the Château to be delivered in the UK (for example, if you've 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.

Our French prices are shown here.

Wine tastings

We offer wine tastings for one or two wines by appointment along the lines of 'try before you buy', as above. For a tasting of 3-6 wines allow €40 for 2 people or €15 per head for a group of 3 or more people, which can be offset against orders of 12 or more bottles per person. All tastings must be booked in advance. We recommend 11am or 6pm for tastings, Monday to Friday, subject to availability.

If you're looking for a tasting for a group or for a special occasion, we can give you a quote. These are, of course, subject to availability.

Wine tastings

 

Créon market on Wednesday

There is an excellent food market in Créon just a kilometre away every Wednesday morning from 8.30am, if you want to combine the trip.

Recommended by Victoria Moore, the Telegraph

Don't take our word for it. Here are five Bordeaux châteaux to visit, as picked out by the Telegraph's wine correspondent: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/france/aquitaine/bordeaux/articles/bordeaux-wine-guide/

Local restaurants

See below for ideas on where to eat locally. Note that last orders for lunch in many restaurants is 1.45pm. Further afield, Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion are both 30 minutes away by car, excluding parking up time, so do let us know at the start if you need to leave in good time.

Directions

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, and you can park in the yard, such as under the tree near the old Citroen van. The tasting room is there on the right hand side, straight ahead as you come down the drive. If we're not there, call or text us as above.

Local places to eat

We recommend a good local restaurant in the main square in Créon called Chez Titut, tel. +33 5 56 42 98 40. This was formerly La Table, and has a large garden out the back and open from 12pm to 2pm from Tuesday to Saturday, and 7pm to 10pm for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Opening hours change according to the seasons so do check on google. There's a sandwich bar next to Chez Titut, a creperie plus a good café called La Tasse qui fume, all in the square (Place de la Prevoté).

There's a new Bistro Regent off the roundabout opposite Carrefour heading away from the town (see below). It’s a popular chain of restaurants offering a good value steak and chips formula. Modern, tasty and efficient - and open until 2.15pm for lunch. If you're with kids, you may want to know there's a 'McDo' on the edge of the town near 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.

If all you want is a snack, we have two excellent, large boulangeries (bakeries) within a mile of us:

Le Fournil de Créon is near the end of our road, and is open from 7am to 8pm, 7 days a week. In the morning, you can choose from a selection of sandwich fillings and styles of bread.

We also use Maison Catarino, not far away and with similar opening hours, and the sandwiches and salads are excellent. We recommend that you buy sandwiches before our 11am tour, not after, as they often sell out.

Here is a map of Créon showing these and other places of note, taken from our farmhouse guide, 'the local area'.
