The wine growing region between the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers of southwestern France is called Entre-Deux-Mers ('between two seas'). and it is here that you will find Château Soussac, a gorgeous 19th century château producing fine wines grown in natural conditions without added fertilizers or chemicals. Joe and Nell Beattie, your hosts and the vintners, have a web site that states, "Château Soussac ~ where the great wines of Bordeaux and we are waiting to welcome you." That sums up the warm hospitality you can expect at the château.
Beyond the fine guest rooms for your comfort and an on site masseuse who can help you to relax and forget the stress of day-to-day living, guests can also take cooking courses with a professional chef and have free wine tastings at the château. However, the feature attraction for wine lovers is the opportunity to take organized Wine Courses to discover the world of great wines and to taste and learn about them as you stand in the vineyards among the vines. As Château Soussac is in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers and close to St-Emilion and Sauternes, they have on hand a team of experts who will introduce the novice wine drinker to the delights of wine and show them how to differentiate between wines. For the serious wine lover, the château's experts will explain the complexities of the grand crus and how a really great wine is created.
Wine Tours to the great Chateaux of Bordeaux are available to guest of Château Soussac, including St-Emilion/Pomerol, Sauternes and the Médoc. Tours are priced based upon the number of guests in the party and the regions visited. The Beatties will be happy to arrange tours to their guests' preferred regions and put together an itinerary. Only one region is possible per day.
We hope you will visit Château Soussac on our web site to see this beautiful wine producing estate for yourself, for contact information, to learn more about their offers, or to arrange participation in a Wine or Cooking Course. The château is the perfect venue for weddings and family gatherings in a region of France that has so much to offer both the wine connoisseur and the novice, as well as other visitors who are happy exploring castles and small villages, the Atlantic beaches of the Médoc and the stimulating city of Bordeaux.
