Jean-Michel Cazes and his sister Sylvie, owners of the famous Château Lynch Bages, a “Grand Cru Classé” and one of the most reputed chateaux in the Medoc, have created this wine school to offer all wine lovers the opportunity to discover the world of Bordeaux wines. The school, located on the Allées Tourny, right in the historical center of the town, is in a 19th century building with a view over the opera, the “Grand Théâtre” and the central market, “Marché des Grands Hommes”. Thanks to its location, you will have the opportunity to visit the best Châteaux of the most famous wine-making areas such as the Medoc, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol, the Graves or Sauternes.
