There is  a large dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, a sitting room with stairs leading to the three bedrooms on the upper floor.

The vineyard is one of the oldest in the region, albeit with modern ideas and techniques. The vineyard is converting to organic status which should be a member of the Vigneron Independant organisationcomplete by 2014.

wineThe vineyard produces some excellent Côtes de Duras AC, especially the crisp dry white Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a whole range of red, white and rosé wines.The reds tend to be based on the Bordeaux mix – Cabernets and Merlots but with a distinctive style of its own!
