This is the epitome of "class" in winery visits. Gunvor, who has been in charge of hospitality for as long as I remember (at least the early 90's) is charming, sophisticated, entertaining and educative. The other guides who are slowly taking over from her are...More

One of the Icons in Bordeaux, the visit of the Domaine gives the exact dimension if the greatness of this wine. Modern premises and tools for making wine, luxury and profession all over. A gem!

Margaux is a stunning chateau with a substantial operation. Of all the chateaux we visited, its scale seemed the most massive. The grounds and building layout give the impression of the operation being a village. Chateau Margaux even has an elegant color of green building...More

Really, unless you feel compelled to join the crowds. Just stop by, look at the "chateau" and continue on you way. A much better idea is to arrange for a visit to a smaller local winery where they will be happy to see you and...More

There is a bus stop in Margaux from Bordeaux. I will try to look for it in my phone and post it. The chateau Margaux is probably a 15-20 minute leisurely walk from this bus stop. Through some chateaus and vineyards... More

You could contact the Chateau directly using their contact page or you could get a wine tour to get you an visit. Slots are of a premium and at a shortage so book early
