Château La Dominique

A standout among Bordeaux’s many wine producers, this 29-acre, Grand Cru Classé estate in Saint-Émilion is a mix of old and new, with a stately, 18th-century chateau and a sleek, glass-and-steel cellar designed by starchitect Jean Nouvel. Come for the “Blind Tasting Tour” and sample three of Bordeaux’s finest wines, or opt for the “Wine & Food Tour,” a private, 90-minute experience that pairs La Dominique wines with gourmet fare. Visitors can also dine at the La Terrase Rouge restaurant, which boasts regional specialties like foie gras, black truffles, and Bazas beef along with sweeping views of the surrounding vineyards. Château La Dominique is a sought-after destination so be sure to book your visit in advance.

Château La Dominique

After a dizzying day of wine touring, each château may look identical to the last. Château La Dominique stands out for its très cool wine cellar, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel: a streamlined block dressed with mirrored stainless steel panels in six shades of red. Above the vat room, grapelike glass pebbles cover a rooftop terrace (a nod to harvest-crushing activities) where you sample La Dominique’s grand crus and take in village and vineyard views.
