Large, impressive investments in Bordeaux, a must see

Share/like this post:

In Bordeaux, the wine chateaux invest. They invest in new stylish wine cellars, new oak barrels, new fermentation tanks, new optical sorting machines. And probably in other things as well. It is not just the well-known chateaux with thick wallets that invest. Though it is only these chateaux that can afford to hire designers and architects with an international reputation, like Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel.

The results are often spectacular. The lesser known but ambitious chateaux construct more modest but still very stylish and functional cellars.

As a visitor you are easily impressed by a beautiful cellar. And as more chateaux open up for wine tourists it is becoming more and more important to impress. And maybe the wine also gets a bit better with a new cellar. Come and judge for yourself! Our spring wine tour to Bordeaux takes place in May.
