Médoc vineyards

Discovering the Médoc vineyards

Would you like to discover the art of the vine? Go to the Médoc vineyards, between prestigious estates and bucolic walks.

The Médoc wine region is without doubt one of the most famous in the world. With its 16,500 hectares of land, its châteaux and its privileged location near the Atlantic, the reputation of the Médoc vineyards is well established.

There are several appellations behind the words "Médoc vineyards": they are divided into Haut-Médoc, Médoc, regional and communal AOCs. Médoc wines are recognisable by their beautiful ruby colour and fruity smell with spicy and vanilla notes. They are the fruit of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes, which make for well-balanced and above all tasty wines.


Vineyards and heritage

From Bordeaux to the Pointe de Grave, set off on the Médoc wine route to discover the region's vineyards and heritage. Along the Gironde estuary, discover the Haut-Médoc and its vineyards. The Bas-Médoc is home to some unmissable towns such as Soulac-sur-Mer and Lesparre-Médoc. Finally, the Landes forest, with its two lakes, lends itself to hiking and other outdoor activities.

Along the Médoc vineyards, explore a region full of treasures. Visit points of interest such as the abbey and abbey church of Vertheuil, the basilica of Notre-Dame-De-La-Fin-Des-Terres, or the archaeological site of Brion, the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa from the 1st century. Don't miss Fort-Médoc, built by Vauban to protect Bordeaux from river attacks. As for nature, the Hourtin Nature Reserve and the Contaut lagoon offer magnificent opportunities for walks between the dunes and the ocean. The nature reserve of the Cousseau pond is the ideal place for a picnic in peace and quiet.

Vineyard Castle d'Agassac

Preserved site and sustainable approach at Castle d'Agassac

The Château d'Agassac wine estate is located on a preserved site in the Haut-Médoc. The vineyard has been made up of two neighbouring estates since the end of the 19th century: D'Agassac and Pomiès-Agassac. The vineyard produces Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc on its 45 hectares. Château D'Agassac has undoubtedly always had viticultural ambitions, as evidenced by its elegant cellars adjacent to the 13th century fortress.



The Vignole du Médoc benefits from a temperate oceanic climate, thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean but also to the Landes forest which protects it from the winds. Temperatures are mild most of the time, which makes it a pleasant tourist destination in all seasons. The ideal period is undoubtedly the Indian summer, to make the most of the mild climate. At the beach, too, the water is still warm: perhaps this is your chance to try surfing?
While it is easy to explore the Médoc by car, the region can also be discovered on foot or by bike. The many marked trails, the wide variety of landscapes and the pleasant climate make it a paradise for hikers and bikers alike. There are more than 400 km of cycle paths in the region! Get on your bike and ride through the Landes forest and along the Atlantic coast.

The Médoc vineyards can also be explored on horseback. Observe the magnificent landscapes of the region at the pace of your travelling companion, along the beaches or under the pine trees of the Landes forest. Some riding schools offer multi-day packages.

For an even more surprising experience, take to the skies in a hot air balloon. Admire the Médoc vineyards from the sky by experiencing a hot air balloon flight: unforgettable!
