My dad and I are food and wine connoisseurs, so when my dad announce that he was taking us to Bordeaux, I was so happy and made a list of the Chateaux I wanted to see in Haut-Medoc,  for him to take us there.

The Haut-Medoc is the home of Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Lagrange and more wonderful Chateaux of famous wine.

I strongly encourage to take the car ferry from Royan on the Gironde River, to  Verdon. It is a beautiful 30-45 mn boat ride.

My favorites are Chateau Lagrange, Chateau Belgrade, Chateau Saint-Julien, Chateau Pontet-Canet, Chateau Pichon-Longueville and Chateau Margaux. Those are a must to stop at…
