Château de Ferrand is an enchanting 17th-century château surrounded by vines and overlooking the Dordogne Valley. Located not far from Saint-Emilion, this rare jewel was built during the reign of Louis XIV. The estate's wines have been a leading light among the great Bordeaux wine estates for three hundred years and its wine cellars have recently been elegantly and stylishly refurbished by a renowned Italian designer.

In 2012, Ferrand won recognition for the quality of its wines when the estate was awarded Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé status. This ranking also rewards châteaux that have been able to develop their architectural heritage and make it available to wine-lovers. Ferrand's tasting room is designed to appeal to wine professionals and to visitors from all strata. Authenticity runs through this exceptional estate, from the beauty of the site to the inestimable care and attention brought to the winemaking process. Take a private tour of the estate and its cellars.

Next, a workshop for food-lovers who are hungry to learn combines useful tips with a pleasurable culinary experience. This workshop comes in the form of entertaining lessons to further your knowledge of wine, and also include a delicious lunch at the Château. Your wine-tasting session is led by a sommelier and the accompanying cuisine is perfectly matched to the range of vintages on offer, conjured up by Château de Ferrand's Michelin-starred chef. This is the epitome of French art de vivre. You'll enjoy four dishes and four vintages of Château de Ferrand. Taste, savor, compare, as the sommelier explains the secret behind food and wine pairing. Your workshop-menu end with a café gourmand .
