When pass­ing through Gironde in the spring of 1808, on his way to re­solve a diplo­matic is­sue in the Span­ish Court at Madrid, Napoleon called un­ex­pect­edly at Château de Portets. He was served a quick lunch and a bot­tle from the Château. The episode is re­traced in the fun specif­i­cally-ded­i­cated sec­tion at Château de Portets, on the Garonne in the Graves re­gion.
