Discover Kirwan, one of the jewels of Médoc

Façade Cuvier Kirwan

The visit of Château Kirwan will introduce you to the world of a family involved in the production and trading of Bordeaux wines since ... 8 generations. Its universe is authentic, warm and intimate, but also prestigious, for this 3rd classified growth of the Margaux appellation, in the Medoc area.

In 2017, the wine estate used an architecture firm to highlight the 18th century heritage with a contemporary approach, while offering the best technical response to the estate's viticultural activities. Enclosed between two stone buildings, the renovated winery has contemporary lines with, in front, the steel sculpture of a monumental vine stock.

Several tasting formulas are available on booking as well as sensory approaches: culinary workshop and making of a perfume. If art calls you, other Médoc wine estates have also design cellars, such as Château Lafite-Rothschild and Cos d'Estournel.
