Domaine Castéra

Address: Quartier Ucha, 64360 Monein
Tel: 05 59 21 34 98  Fax: 05 59 21 46 32
Geo-coordinates:  Latitude: 43:17:43N (43.29514)    Longitude: -0:32:53W (-0.54796) 

Christian Lihour is a particularly good-value Jurançon grower, whose wines, both dry and sweet are just as good if not better than those made by more famous names. Hard to find; go East out of Monein and continue past Domaine Bordenaves and don’t give up until the road nearly peters out.

Useful information: Open Monday to Saturday from 9.00-12.00 and 14.00-18.00. Sundays and public holidays by appointment only. No English, but tasting is free and small group visits could be arranged.
