Our historie

A unique vineyard : First Great Classified Growth in the imperial classification of 1855, this is the oldest property of Sauternes (dating from the 15th century), one of the largest (with over 100 hectares of vines), and the only one whose vines are entirely situated within the Sauternes communal limits. A natural wine : Château Guiraud is the only 1855 First Growth to be certified for Organic Agriculture (in 2011), and is the only château committed to a truly global rethinking of its vineyard operations.

Château Guiraud is renowned for its natural approach to noble rot thanks to measures including prohibition of herbicides and chemical insecticides, the installation of « inset hotels », the planting of 6km of hedgerows, the genetic diversity of its vines, a conservatory gathering some 100 vine varieties, and a water treatment station which functions through natural filtration by reeds. The wines of Château Guiraud are marked by their authenticity, freshness, mineral character and exceptional deph.To arrive at Château Guiraud by the long avenue of plane trees is to leave the stress of daily life and enter another world.

Gradually, as you progress through the vaulted tunnel created by the plane trees, calm descends, and you begin to slow down in order to fully appreciate the setting: the trees, the vines alongside and the borders of wild flowers. Then the buildings are revealed at the end of the road. Their appearance is so simple and unassuming that no one thinks that they have arrived at Château Guiraud, an 1855 Sauternes premier cru classé. And yet you are in one of those magical places in Bordeaux, where, over the centuries, the combination of nature and human invention has created a truly exceptional vineyard.

It seems as if the property is cut off from the world, Guiraud is surrounded by vines and then the edge of the forest. You have to approach the winery to take in the view of the open landscape. From there, you can see the steeple in the village of Sauternes below. People come to Château Guiraud unsure of what to expect, but always leave with a special memory.

Tellement heureux d\'avoir choisit de visiter Château Guiraud ! Une première pour nous en Sauternes. Notre visite privée a été un grand plaisir ! L\'expérience était idéale... personnalisée et éducative... merci Maria !!

Maria was just lovely and extremely knowledgeable. The wines were spectacular although we were disappointed to hear that we were unable to have bottles shipped to the USA. We would have loved to have some sent home for us to enjoy with ur guests. Also the food at La Chapelle was out of this world. We’d give it a 5 star ⭐️ rating. Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience.

Je n\'ai pas été informée de vos différentes options. En réservant mes places via Internet, je n\'ai pas été informée qu\'il pouvait y avoir un couplage, déjeuner au restaurant-visite. Dommage.

Extremely well organized visit for our group of 7 people with very different level of wine knowledge. Thank you for a lovely day!

Voyage aromatique

(Things to improve) 1. The reception door was locked when I arrived at 10:00AM. 2. The staff who escorted us was 15-min late to the appointment time (10:00AM). 3. I ordered more expensive plan than usual, but the staff didn\'t know it. Unless I pointed it out, we could not taste the better good vintage wine. Some people may don\'t like things above. At least, I strongly recommend you to confirm the plan that visitors booked. In spite of some bad things above, the overall introduction/tasting quality was really good and I loved your wines. If I have another chance to visit Bordeaux, I hope to visit your winery again. Thank you very much!!

Muirhead Brian - 2016/09/05
Découverte de la propriété

Supposedly the best chateau for wine tourism with a good reputation which led my UK friend to recommend it. However the guide was ridiculously inexperienced and the tour was rapid and of little interest. Despite our substantial wine purchase compared to the other visitors who bought one or two bottles we were not made to feel special or welcome. Poor.

Ambre was delightful and we enjoyed the property very much. We went to Chateau d'Yquem after and everyone preferred their experience at Guiraud.

Plus d'explications techniques, peut-être quelques minutes dans les vignes pour expliquer le terroir, et une visite un peu plus longue
