La Safranière de Garonne

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes Favourites -

Just as every civil­i­sa­tion since an­cient times has found a use for wine, so it is with saf­fron. As early as the Mid­dle Ages, saf­fron was used in En­tre-deux-mers for its medic­i­nal and culi­nary virtues; the monks also used it to make their il­lu­mi­na­tions. Af­ter six cen­turies of use in tra­di­tional cul­ture, saf­fron dis­ap­peared in the early 20th cen­tury. Chan­tal and Thierry Ar­naud are re­viv­ing this lost her­itage, and wel­come you into their safranière for a tast­ing/tour for a try (sweet, or savoury with a gourmet apéri­tif) in the pres­ence of a wine-mak­ing part­ner.
