The viticulture, winemaking and barrel ageing,
The tasting of our wines.

Because kids are also important at Château Castera, the tour is also adapted to children.
Simple, entertaining panels enable them to learn alongside their parents.
In addition of the Discovery Tour programme, this tour focuses on the estate’s most famous owners and includes a private tour of the tower housing the château archives going as far back as the 15th century. This trip back in the time will delight history lovers and includes a number of anecdotes.

Awards and distinctions
Château Castera, a front-runner in the field of wine tourism in Bordeaux, has received the “Best of Wine Tourism” award for the past several years thanks to the warm welcome, beautiful château, and well-tended parks and gardens.
This much-respected award (especially abroad) recognises the efforts we have made for several years and which are appreciated by all our visitors.
As this award can be earned every year, we are doubling our efforts to earn it once again.
Château Castera also earned Vignobles & Découvertes certification in 2016 upon recommendation from the Conseil Supérieur de l’Œnotourisme.
This proves that Château Castera is firmly committed to quality wine tourism. Furthermore, the estate is part of the new Route du Vin de Bordeaux en Médoc created by Gironde Tourisme.
