Description: The magnificent Château de Cassaigne is surrounded by more than 30 hectares of vineyards from which Armagnac is produced –at the expense of upsetting any purists Armagnac is similar to brandy, many say it is better! Why not solve the debate and try some for yourself? The visit to the Chateau is free and with the help of a written guide it is possible to visit the vaulted kitchens, associated rooms, a cellar and watch a video (in English) about the estate. Tastings are also free, ranging from Floc de Gascogne (local aperitif), Armagnac itself and prunes soaked in Armagnac. More info from our Specialist Wines section.
Location: Can be found in the village of Cassaigne, 7kms SW of Condom on D208 (off main D931).
General Information: Armagnac tasting. Website.
Our recommendations: Definitely a visit for adults, perhaps slotted in after the children have had their fun. However there are artefacts etc. that may interest the children and the grounds are ideal for running around in, leaving the adults to more ‘grown-up’ pursuits!
