The Impressive Château de Duras
We visit the 14th century Château de Duras, an architectural wonder, which has been both a fortress and a stately home over its 900-year history. We wander through its 35 rooms and museum. Bordeaux The Bordeaux region, with its special ‘terroir’, has been producing wine for around 2,000 years and some of the château estates have gained worldwide recognition for their superb and long-lived vintages. On your cruise aboard Rosa between Boé and Castets, there will be the opportunity to learn more about the complex science of viticulture on tours to such places as Saint-Emilion, including of course a tasting of some fine wines. We will also explore the countryside surrounding the Val de Garonne and see towns such as historic Nérac and elegant Marmande.
