Visited with the family for the English-speaking tour and wine-tasting. The tour gave us an insight to how the grapes are grown right through to the actual production and storage of the wine itself. Very knowledgeable staff and a nice variety of wines to try (and buy if you so please)

Booked via Jonzac tourist office ( excellent) and although a tiny bit sceptical about the advertising we weren't disappointed. 28€ covered Horse carriage return trip - Citadelle to Château- lunch (4 courses) with 3 wines....

It was good to go back to Blaye and the Chateau de Marquis de Vauban. We were treated very well and had a great meal of local delicacies accompanied by the Chateau's own wines. The introduction to each wine was most clearly and pleasantly presented by the knowledgeable staff. We took advantage of the offer of a horse drawn carriage... More

The tour and tasty unexpected lunch represented excellent value for money. Would go again. The trip to the citadel completed the wonderful day.

We visited the Chateau for the wine growers lunch. The lunch cost 27 euros and was excellent value for money. We had four courses plus tasting of four different wines. We were the only English couple in a group of 20 French and we were made very welcome. A young lady who spoke very good English looked after us and... More

The Journee decouverte included an interesting and educational day combining a tour of the vineyards with a lunch of delicious food served with the wine from this welcoming chateau. The selection of wines was excellent and good value.

We were greeted on arrival with a refreshing aperitif of delicious chilled claret, followed by a fantastic 4 course lunch with a different wine with each course. This was then followed by a very informative tour of the vineyard and tank rooms. It was a most enjoyable day out with very hospitable hosts in beautiful surroundings.

We spent the day at this Chateau where we were guided around the history of the place, the vinyards and the process of wine making. This trip finished off with a sumptous lunch and the tasting of 3 of their wines during the meal. Very professionally presented and friendly from start to finish.

We stayed in Blaye for 4 nights in early September 2013. We booked in to Chateau Marquis de Vauban for lunch through the tourist information centre in Blaye. Lunch was amazing although we were not sure what to eat first as there was so much on our table. So we simply followed what a large group of French tourists did... More
