15h00 - visit of a beautiful medieval castle (1306), which is very well preserved thanks to the fact that the same family has lived here for already seven centuries! With a tasting of a superb white wine in the Graves appellation produced by the owner of the castle, Monseigneur le Vicomte, from vineyards on an area of only 10 hectares. Private visit done by Monseigneur le Vicomte in person, who will be happy to show you his property and talk about his wine during a private tasting. We highly recommend!!!
