Mon­tesquieu: the Wine­grow­ing Philoso­pher

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

It was in Château de La Brède, a listed his­tor­i­cal mon­u­ment in the heart of the Graves and Sauternes Bordeaux Wine Trails, that Mon­tesquieu was born in 1869. As some­one who was in­cred­i­bly at­tached to his roots, Mon­tesquieu liked to re­turn to his fam­ily es­tate to en­joy his sec­ond pas­sion: wine­grow­ing. He would walk among his Graves vines while dream­ing up his mas­ter­piece, ‘The Spirit of the Laws’, which he would go on to write in his room and li­brary.
