In the village of Cérons, in the Graves region, the eponymous Château faces a beautiful 12th-century church.
Listed as a historic monument, the Château is an early 18th-century wine-growing charterhouse, built on a terrace overlooking the Garonne.
The estate produces wines of three different colours: red Graves, dry white Graves and Cérons, a sweet golden Bordeaux wine which is one of the most exclusive and oldest Bordeaux appellations.
Xavier and Caroline PERROMAT, the Château owners, welcome guests to an extraordinary tour brimming with authenticity. You start off in the Hall of Honour and get shown round all the buildings on the wine-growing estate, preserved in their original state. Visitors then tour the vineyards clustered around the château, the barrel storehouses and the former cooperage. At the end of the tour, there’s a tasting session of the estate’s three wines in the Château dining-room.
To make this moment last longer and enjoy the magnificent setting of the estate, visitors can put together a picnic or Cérons pre-dinner drinks, from the local produce available in the boutique (foies gras, duck rillettes, tapenades, compotes, etc.), choose a bottle of wine from the estate, sit in the shade of the magnolias and wind down with their family or friends.
The château can also host seminars, receptions and family events.
