We spent the morning wandering around the centre of Bordeaux, which is not far from our B&B. The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List because of its outstanding 18th century architecture. It is very beautiful, with a lovely large park and many pedestrian only streets.

In the afternoon, we drove to Bourg to visit Chateau de la Grave (http://www.chateaudelagrave.com/index.php). We had a very interesting tour of the winery from the owner, and enjoyed tastings of several vintages. It was a very enjoyable visit. The setting is spectacular and the chateau looks like something out of a fairy tale.
