One of the best wine tourism visits in this part of the Médoc, there is a wine and vines museum, the only one of its type in the area. It looks at how to make wine but also its history in the Médoc, which was unusable marshland until the Dutch built their ditches a few centuries ago, and has some good interactive exhibits and videos. There is also a wine school, a comfortable bed and breakfast, and they can also organise a helicopter ride from the château. A boutique sells wines direct (and you can also buy wines from their website, one of the very few estates to offer e-commerce).

Useful information: Open daily throughout the year (except January 1). Tours of the museum every hour from 10.00 to 17.00 in summer. In winter at 10.00, 11.00, 14.00, 15.00 and 16.00. Bed and Breakfast rooms from €75.
