Visit to Château Bauduc, Créon, La Sauve-Majeure, Thursday 9 May 2019
10:45 for 11:00. Gather at Château Bauduc, Créon (Angela and Gavin Quinney). Guided tour, in English, of vines and winery at 11am, followed by a tasting of six wines. There will be a small fee for tour and tasting. Reasonably priced wines from this château are served by a number of British restaurateurs, among them Gordon Ramsey and Rick Stein, and can be purchased during our visit. (Further details on wines and full directions at: <https://www.bauduc.com>. Also see Gavin’s blog)
13:00. Lunch at Restaurant La Table in the main square (Place de la Prévoté) of the bastide town of Creón, five minutes from the château. There is ample parking within two minutes’ walk of the restaurant and some spaces in the square itself. (Restaurant website: <http://latable-creon.fr/>).
For those wishing to continue after lunch, the small town of La-Sauve-Majeure, complete with its partly ruined 12th-c. Benedictine abbey, a Romanesque unesco World Heritage site, is 2 km from Créon (http://www.abbaye-la-sauve-majeure.fr/).
We shall need to give both Bauduc and the resto an idea of numbers.
