A few days ago I was lucky enough to be tipped off about an ongoing Art & Wine program called “1 Château pour 1 Artiste”.
The program regroups ten Châteaus in eight appellations around the Bordeaux region. Each Château has selected to support one or two local artists whose artwork will be on display in and around the Château all summer long.
How to see the artwork:
The official “season” for 1 Château pour 1 Artiste will run until the end of August. If you would like to see the artwork yourself contact the Château of your choice and stop by for a visit. The program also organizes “tours” of three Châteaus and their art each Thursday from the 12th of July until the 13th of September. For more information on the “Circuit Art&Vin” contact the Saint-Emilion Tourism Office at +33.(0)5 57 55 28 28 www.saint-emilion-tourism.com
Participating Châteaus and Artists:
