Sauternes

Open-Door weekend in Sauternes-Barsac

Over the second weekend of November, around 50 estates in the 5 communes of the Sauternes and Barsac appellations hold open-door events to let visitors explore the world of the wonderful golden wines that are grown and made between the River Garonne and the Landes forest, to the south-west of Bordeaux.

The winegrowers and winemakers of Sauternes and Barsac invite you to embark on a journey into fragrance and flavour. Notes of fresh fruit (citrus and white peach) and acacia blossom in the lighter-coloured wines, fragrances of candied or dried fruit in the more golden wines, becoming increasingly complex in the older amber-coloured wines: learn how to identify and - most importantly - enjoy them all!

In addition to tasting these famous wines, you will - of course - meet their friendly and welcoming makers. Share in their love of the soil, hear them talk about their latest harvest and the promise of the year’s vintage, and learn a little of their expertise as you walk through their vines and tour their cellars.

Throughout the Sauternes-Barsac Open-Door weekend, the entire area comes alive with food events, concerts, entertainment and learning opportunities. Make sur you also take maximum advantage of the discovery tours organised by the Sauternes Graves Landes Girondines Tourist Office (booking strongly recommended)!
