Stop at the port of Portets

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

“Port je fus, Vi­g­no­ble je reste” (port I was, vine­yard I re­main): this is the motto of this once bustling port, from where barges loaded with Graves wines headed to­wards Bordeaux. Must-see: the mag­nif­i­cent Château de Portets (www.chateaude­portets.fr), ‘Best Of Wine Tourism 2017’ in the ‘Ar­chi­tec­ture & Land­scapes’ cat­e­gory, and Château de Mon­ge­nan, which is home to an ex­cep­tional botan­i­cal gar­den (1000 va­ri­eties of roses, an­cient, tinc­to­rial and medic­i­nal plants). www.chateaude­mon­ge­nan.com
