WE LOVE

  • Falling asleep in the utter silence of the immense vineyard. In the morning, open the window and face the jaw-dropping sun drenched panorama.
  • The vertical tasting: discover the domaine du Chateau d’Arche through the tasting of its 5 most characteristic vintages.
  • Being just a leisurely walk away from the small village of Sauternes.

DON'T MISS

  • Bordeaux is just a 30 minutes’ drive. The sixth largest city of France and the wine industry’s world capital is now best known as little Paris. After years of neglect, the city became the country's new hot spot, with a number of cafés, gardens and museums springing up all the time.
  • Nearby medieval village of Saint Macaire. For a gourmet lunch (or dinner, you’re just 10 minutes drive from the chateau) head to the restaurant l’Abricotier for south-west cuisine. Best enjoyed on the lovely shaded terrace.

THE BEST BIT

The workshops of Le Relais Chateau d’Arche. In the winter (from January to March) take part in the most important operation of the year: the trimming of the vines. The rest of year, the assemblage workshop allows you to create your own vintage and have it tasted by professionals.
