Exhibitions: long live contempory art
Another way to discover the vineyards, another way to look at the works on display… a great experience admiring paintings in the atmosphere of an ancient wine cellar at a chateau such as Lynch-Bages in Medoc. You can also wander around the gardens and the rooms inside the château Guiraud in Sauternes, or even visit a garden full of ornate sculptures, such as Vertheuil Abbey close to Saint-Estèphe.
Château Lynch-Bages and the village of BagesThere’s always something a little magical about entering a château, but this ancient 19th century wooden fermentation room where an exhibition by an internationally acclaimed artist is held each year, is sure to surpass your expectations. Just a few metres away, take a free tour of the hamlet of Bages, a village that has been entirely reconstructed and is devoted to the flavoursome delights.
Browse the thousands of items and gift ideas available in the wine-themed store, rediscover the taste of your childhood at the traditional bakery, Le baba d’Andrea, and finally, visit Café Lavinal, where a mouth watering menu offers dishes made using regional produce.
