Organic winemaking and wine tasting tour at Chateau Feely in Saussignac
I was invited by Caro Feely to check out her organic farm and vineyard in a small village of Saussignac during my trip to Bordeaux. What a joy that it was!
The train journey is about an hour from the city of Bordeaux and you are transported through the wine country and famous appellations of Saint Emillion and Pomerol. The views are breathtaking even from the train.
Upon arriving the station, I'm greeted by a representative from Chateau Feely to take me up to the Chateau. The whole day tour covers a walk around the property, wine tasting of the different wines that Chateau Feely offers, the journey to creating the wine, the organic and biodynamic methods used, lunch with wine pairing, tour of the machinery. The love and passion of the land, the wine, organic and sustainable methods, really shine through.
What a great day to spend in the French countryside!
