Médoc, wine terroir

Discover the most famous vineyards in the world. We are at the heart of an exceptional terroir that allows the wine growers of the region to make outstanding wine. We are wine lovers, so we'll be able to give you some advice about the chateaux you can visit and where you can buy wine. We also organise wine tasting sessions for beginners at the camp site. An excellent opportunity to try your palate.

You can find excellent wines in the region. There are more than a thousand wine chateaux in the Medoc and the vineyard covers 16.000 ha on 8 appellations. Some chateaux are listed as Grands Crus Classés according to the classification of 1855, others are Crus Bourgeois or small family estates.

Our favourite : Château La Tour de By. This estate is run traditionally by passionate winegrowers and they make a refine wine. La Tour de By offers a signposted walk in the vineyard and the screening of a documentary on the estate. La Tour de By also offers entertaining workshops for children. Tours are free of charge and you don't have to book. The château is open to the public all year round . Camp site customers are charged a preferential rate.

Once a year we organise a week around the theme of wine and gastronomy. To know the next session, please connect and like our facebook page.
