Obviously you can not pass Saint Emilion without visiting a chateau, so I reserved by mail Chateau de Ferrand, since I wanted to visit a winery that was producing Saint Emilion grand cru (they are actually now also having a classé). We did the tour "La Barrique", which included a tour of the property ( the castle itself is being... More

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this Chateau and the brief history of the Chateau our local tour guide (sorry forgot his name) provided to us. He was very informative, took us around the courtyard and explained the wine making process to... More

We got to taste a few wines at this chateau during our visit to St.-Emilion. It was an enjoyable experience with the wine and great presentation from the guide.

Made a reservation for a Sunday afternoon tour. Small group, 6 people total. Guide was well educated about the winery and the St Emilion wine business. Chateau is being managed by the daughter and son in law of the owner, who is German. Substantial investment in new equipment -- the tank rooms (concrete tanks) and other areas, including the cask...

What an experience! The property, the wines and the presentation of fun, passionate and knowledgeable person like Adrien makes it unforgettable. I'm able to see the quality of wines from completely new perspective. A must visit!

I visited Chateau de Ferrand in June 2016 and enjoyed a 1-on-1 tasting with sommelier Adrien. The wines as well as the cellar and grounds were impressive (the tasting room was gorgeous and modern). Adrien was very informative about the wines as well as the chateau's history and owners (the Bic family). Overall this was a great experience and the... More

Our tour was given by the wine maker who was very knowledgeable of the history, property and process. He was a fabulous host! Before our trip we made it a point to purchase and taste Saint-Emilion wines. We chose to visit the winery because we had enjoyed their wines prior to our traveling to Saint-Emilion. We were not disappointed.

The tasting at Chateau de Ferrand rates an excellent. It begins after is a tour of a modern St. Emilion Grand Cru winery, which won the additional word Classé in 2012. Since then the Chateau is working hard to keep it up with more modern means of choosing the correct grapes after the harvest. André, the sommelier on the staff,... More
