Visiting Bordeaux in August - Medoc chateau visits possible?

Postby joann.pham » Wed Jul 06, 2016 8:01 pm

After discovering this great website during my research for our upcoming vacation to Bordeaux in August, I noticed most chateaux in the left bank are closed. Is it possible to see any of then mid August or are we screwed? Thanks!

Thank you for the post. You will have to contact the one at a time ask. Most of France, especially Bordeaux is closed for summer vacation in August.

I think you would find that in many if not most wine areas in France if not Europe that a lot of places (wineries, restaurants, etc.) are closed in August. Europeans tend to take vacation in August. We have had much better luck in July.

You may find some. We traveled the South of France many years ago in August on a motorbike. It was FANTASTIC!! I'd love to do it again :)
