A visit to the world’s wine capital, Bordeaux
Recognised as the world’s wine capital, Bordeaux is home not only to a UNESCO World heritage capital city, but also to over 120,000 hectares of outstanding vineyards and 5,000 centuries-old châteaux. Philippine Tatler Homes had the distinct pleasure of spending a weekend at one such historical estate, the beautiful Château Siran in the town of Labarde in the south of the Margaux Appellation, as guests of Edouard and Sevrine Miailhe. The family of Edouard has owned the château for five generations since 1859. Château Siran produces close to 150,000 bottles annually of First and Second wine, a fine example of the equilibrium, subtelty and complexity of great Margaux wines. Since 2013, it has been open to visitors who are welcome to tour the property (by appointment) and discover all about the art of winemaking.
