Saint-Hippolyte, 33330 Saint-Emilion
The Ferrand Chateau has been an integral part of the Bordeaux wine history since the 17th century. One of its most remarkable attributes is that the chateau has remained within the same two families for 300 years, the present owners being the Baron Bich family.
The estate has its own unique charm, with a spectacular view over the Dordogne valley, elegant architecture and caves hewn out of stone that defy time as a tribute the “eternal glory of the Great King Louis XV”.
The Baron Bich family presides over an estate spanning 42 hectares, of which 32 hectares are vineyards. They value the quality of their wine but are also very conscious of the environmental impact of their production. Each plot is analysed and exploited differently based on its individual attributes (soil, grape variety, year of growth…). In addition, herbicides have not been used on any part of the estate for more than a generation now, earning the chateau the title of Terra Vitis. In 2012, the INAO committee awarded the Ferrand Chateau with the title of “Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion”.
Adrien, official sommelier of the estate, will take you on a tour of the grounds and the cellars before guiding you through a tasting session of the vintages. Another activity is a wine blending workshop where you will have a specially selected variety of cheese platters and charcuterie plates.
