“Staying at Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron was magical. We watched the sun rise over the vineyards of Chateau Latour from the windows of our room. We enjoyed dressing for dinner, sharing an aperitif with new friends in the sitting room recalling memories of the day while nestled among the vineyards. Dinners at the Chateau were more intimate and memorable than at even the finest restaurants.”
- Tom & Lynda Mays, Bluffton, SC | Bordeaux Prestige Tour
