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.

Associer la dégustation de vins à une dégustation de fromages !
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.
Visite et dégustation prévue sur 1h30 écourtée à 45mn ???
Madame Landry was very profissional and also very kind. Thank you very much for the possibility that you gave us to visit the Chateau.
Fabulous Winery - a MUST in Sauternes
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.
Un domaine très accueillant et un personnel impliqué
The whole experience was excellent! It was private, we learned a lot, the setting was beautiful, the wines and accompanying cheeses were very good. We would definitely recommend it!
A wonderful experience, highly recommended - excellent wine and food pairing.
Extremely well organized visit for our group of 7 people with very different level of wine knowledge. Thank you for a lovely day!
(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!!
Enjoyable informative tour. Complemented by some very good wine
The receiption and guide are both very good. Tasting is set in a quiet elegant room, with beautiful presentation and very delicious food. Beyond our expectations. Thanks so much. Strong recommendation!
Fantastic tour and a beautiful chateau.
Propriétaire passionné avec lequel nous avons passé un excellent moment!
one of the best visits ever!
Since I was travelling back to Canada I could not buy more wine. I did however buy an Chateau Guiraud wine apron which is very beautiful.
Très belle découverte du château Guiraud
Je recommande fortement cette visite très instructive sur le Sauternes et l'histoire du domaine.L'accueil était parfait.
Mathilde was a wonderful and welcoming guide. We loved our tour, and having the opportunity to meet one of the principals [Xavier and his son, Luc] was just an added bonus.
Very good tour! exelent guid!
I was amazed at how much our tour guide know - and she was in intern!
Very lucky to see some harvesting, grape pressing and work with tanks and barrels!
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.
We found the wine tour to be truly exceptional. Incredibly informative, friendly guide. Highly recommend
Plus d'explications techniques, peut-être quelques minutes dans les vignes pour expliquer le terroir, et une visite un peu plus longue
Visite a faire de préférence aux alentours de 11h Mais c était très sympa,nous n'étions que 2 et du coup nous avons pu poser des questions et avoir plus de détail,très intéressant
Trés satisfaits de notre visite. Tout était parfait. Merci beaucoup!
Visite agréable et interésante.
They ran out of one of the wines for our tasting so we were unable to taste all of the wines. Otherwise, the tour was very good!
Visite au château Guiraud avec un accueil très agréable et une visite passionnante, nous remercions notre guide pour sa compétence sa bonne humeur dans ce cadre magnifique .
visite très intéressante. L'approche culture bio a particulièrement retenue notre attention. Envie de commander ultérieurement du vin de ce cru.
Très belle propriété
A good tour. It would have been nice ti try the Blanc Sec as well as the sweet wine and to see more of the vineyard.
We arrived late for our visit but the lady was very helpful and still took the time to give us a full visit which we really appreciated.
