Visiting, Tasting
& Enjoying

The experience at Château La Dominique starts with the wonderful panoramic terrace overlooking the vines. A unique viewpoint over the prestigious Châteaux surrounding the estate: Figeac, Cheval-Blanc, La Conseillante, L’Evangile, Petrus, Gazin, Jean-Faure. Discovering the history of the domain and the architecture of the contemporary cellar, enjoying the view over the vineyard from the panoramic terrace, understanding the process of wine elaboration and tasting the various wines of the Château… That’s the program we offer at La Dominique.

And the experience doesn’t end here! To all the Epicureans, we imagined a unique place where you can combine the regional gastronomy and the wine tasting: take a chair at the terrace overlooking the vines and let yourself be tempted by the restaurant’s menu.

Willing to extend the tasting after your tour? Visit the shop of the Château, where you will find all our wines, as well as some La Dominique gifts.
