Spring in the Medoc (Printemps des Chateaux) in the Medoc on 4 – 5 April 2020 . In this famous and celebrated wine region numerous chateaux will be holding open house in the prime appellations of Medoc, Haut-Medoc, St Estephe, Pauillac, Moulis-en-Medoc, Listrac-Medoc and Margaux.
This prized area which stretches north from Bordeaux up to the Pointe de Grave between the Atlantic and the mouth of the Gironde is home to some of the best wines in the world, so any opportunity to visit and taste is a great opportunity.
However, you are unlikely to be offered a sip of the finest old vintages, but samples of the latest vintage will be available in its very young and rather green and tannic state.
Many of the Chateaux are also hosting other events alongside the tastings – music, art or photography exhibitions and food in various forms. Just visiting these chateaux should be an experience, and tastings should be interesting!
