French Wedding Receptions and Ceremonies at the Castle

Chateau D'Agassac, Ludon-Medoc Wedding Venue

"The Château d'Agassac welcomes your private events: weddings, baptisms, anniversaries, communions...
Day and night, enjoy a dream worthy of fairy tales...

There are no gurus here; just a group of men and women who love what they do and are firmly attached to their terroir and its past history.

Graced with one of the oldest vineyards in the Médoc, Agassac has chosen to produce authentic, unadulterated wines - not given to excess concentration, making moderate use of new oak, preference is given to achieving a balance between wood and fruit, and to opting for gentle extraction to preserve that fruitiness and the personality of the terroir."
