Château Lestrille is a family-run chateau in Entre-deux-Mers, the region between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. This is a region that most people only pass through going from Bordeaux to Saint Emilion. But if you stop you will discover a lot of good wine producers.
One of our favourites here is Lestrille, located in the small village of Saint Germain du Puch. The property is run by Estelle Roumage. She recently expanded the business with a wine bar in central Bordeaux. A good idea we think.
We were there in April and enjoyed some of the chateau’s different wines, including the crispy Château Lestrille Blanc, AOP Entre-deux-Mers. You can have either just a glass of wine or you can order one of the really good charcuterie and cheese platters. You can also buy the wines.
Un Château en Ville, 25, rue Saint James, Bordeaux, open Tuesday and Wednesday 16-22 and Thursday-Saturday 11-23.
