The wine tasting hall also houses a lovely little museum with... More

My girlfriend and I did the B Winemaker class here, which was brilliant. We were taken around the barrels, cellars, vineyard and our tour host was extremely knowledgeable, it's safe to say I learnt a lot that day. The best part is, I now have my own handmade Pape Clement wine, which I look forward to drinking in the near... More

I'm really glad I've decided to visit Chateau Pape Clement. Chateau is beautiful and wine tour and wine tasting was excellent! Since I work in wine business I'm always sceptical visiting popular touristic wineries but this was really surprised me! First of all it is very near the city centre Bordeaux and if you don't have a lot of time... More

We chose to visit Chateau Pape Clement for 2 primary reasons, firstly the property is perhaps the closest to our residence, secondly we were fortunate enough to enjoy a bottle of Pape Clement 2000 a few months ago, and it was exquisite! We chose the €20 tour, as with 4 teens any more would have stretched their patience too far.... More

The castle itself is very well preserved and carries a beautiful history as it was indeed owned by Pope Clement in the XVIth century. The garden hosts a 2000 years olive tree and a 200 years Lebanese Cedar. It was a guided tour in English but unfortunately I could not understand well what the guide was saying. She gave the...
