Tour the Quaint Village of Sauternes

The Bordeaux region is large, the village of Sauternes (namesake of the sweet wines of Bordeaux) is about an hour’s drive south from the bustling city of Bordeaux. Our Millesima hosts shipped us off to stay overnight in the village before our grand tour and tasting the next day at Chateau Suduiraut.

Sauternes is one of those beautiful, tiny wine region villages with just enough commerce to be fun (hotel, restaurant for example). If you visit, I highly recommend spending a night in Sauternes. You can have a wonderful meal and stay at Auberge les Vignes.

A special thanks to our Millesima hosts, who sponsored the #MillesimaBA2017 trip for the six blog award winners.

    Sauternes is a favorite place of ours. Not only does the quaint town have good restaurants, many smaller producers of outstanding Sauternes. Haven’t been to Suduiraut yet, need to go!

  2. We spent a lovely day in Sauternes last summer – so charming and, well, Sauternes is always a good idea!

  3. What a great day!!!
