Having viewed the Chateau from afar during previous breaks to Sorede, I took the first downpour for two months to be a good prompt to visit the Chateau.
Although I didn't go to the hotel, I did visit the cellar, which has been refurbished over the past year (with more still being done), As not currently in harvest season, the vats were empty and not working, but still interesting to see the machinery.
It is possible to taste all of the wines and even the "entry-level" varieties are very good.
The view from the cellar is fantastic - shame it was a rainy day for me! You have a view of the vines and in the distance the coastline and sea.
There are on-going developments at the Chateau - a new restaurant is being built, along with a conference room, which are both due to open in 2014.
