Château du Vigneron is an impressive estate set amongst vineyard covered hills in the heart of the Bordeaux region. The old ‘chai’ dating back to the 13th century, and its 18th and 19th century additions, have been painstakingly and beautifully restored to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation of a high standard, overlooking the estate’s historic vines.
Some of the vines are 65 years old and the building itself also has historic significance, as it was once part of the estate belonging to the neighboring Château, which was once the home of King Henry II of England and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine.
Guests will be treated to six en-suite bedrooms, a fully fitted, modern kitchen, wine cellar, media room and conservatory, with many charming features such as exposed stone, high ceilings, wooden beams and large open fireplaces.
Outdoors there are three hectares of garden, vineyard and ancient oak forest to enjoy, as well as views over the vineyards and surrounding valley.
Chateau du Vigneron is a working vineyard and the owners are passionate about their soon to be released first vintage, after carefully breathing life back into the estate’s abandoned vines of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and holidaymakers looking to take advantage of the many local attractions and stunning scenery. Wine tasting and fantastic restaurants are on your doorstep in and around Saint Emilion, Graves and Sauternes, which are all within easy reach.
