Chasselas’ Castle

Château de Chasselas. Organised around a vast interior courtyard, the magnificent wine making property has been set up in buildings from the fourteenth through to the eighteenth centuries, overseen by three watch turrets. The outbuildings, Dove cot, barn, wine makers’ houses and orchard are ideal for receptions and events. The owners, hailing from a long line of wine makers and art collectors enjoy mixing the pleasure of wine with that of hosting admirably. They organise concerts, theatrical evenings, and sculpture and painting exhibitions throughout their estate and also have guest rooms at the château. At the 2011 Independent Wine maker’s competition, the Saint-Véran 2009 Premium blend won a silver medal as did the Crémant de Bourgogne. Whereas the Saint-Véran Thetys, an exceptional vintage with hints of toasted bread, crystallized and wild fruit, was rewarded by the Michelin Guide.
