We shall meet at Château Carbonnieux, Chemin Peyssardet, 33850 Leognan at 10.30 for a visit and tasting.

Founded in the 13th century by the Benedictine Monks of the Abbaye de Saint Croix, Château Carbonnieux is one of the oldest estates in the Bordeaux Region and is renowned for both its red and white wines.

In 1956, Marc Perrin purchased the château, that became a Cru Classé in 1959, for its red and white wines. Today, Eric and Philibert, his grandsons, have taken over, continuing the remarkable work of their father Antony.

The cost for the visit and tasting is 7€.
