Housed in the magnificent 18th century Labottière mansion, standing opposite La Grande Maison, the Cultural Institute Bernard Magrez is a private initiative of arts patronage. The initiative is driven by the will and desire of one man to share his love for art and artists. After building an entrepreneurial career based on excellence, innovation and creativity, Bernard Magrez now wants to “give back to society” what good fortune gave him.
There are four types of tours for you to choose from the wine storehouses to the fermenting room and cellar, all followed by a guided wine-tasting session.

When this vineyard was presented to Bertrand de Goth in the 13th century, the archbishop of Bordeaux, later consecrated as Pope Clement V, devoted all his talent to successfully improving the processes for wine-production. In the 19th century, it was down to Jean-Baptiste Clerc to establish the reputation of the Château’s wines. And when Bernard Magrez acquired it in the 1980s, it was his turn to embark on the road towards excellence in developing the Grands Crus.
This Grand Cru Classé Haut Médoc welcomes you in the medieval suites of one of the oldest castles in the region, a major player in the history of France, especially during the Hundred Years War. With its two beautiful guest rooms and dining-room complete with its imposing table, La Tour Carnet is a unique place you can have to yourself for an intimate, timeless holiday.
This former monastery has retained a certain sacred charm from its religious past. Steadily built up over the centuries, the origins of the Château Fombrauge vineyard date back to the 16th century. Since it was acquired by Bernard Magrez, the Château’s long corridors have echoed with melodies played with Stradivarius’ finest, in concerts and by musicians in residence. You can choose between the spring suite with its stately elegance and a period suite with the charm of a bygone era, for a taste of unprecedented luxury. Its inviting grounds and formal French garden are perfect for a contemplative stroll.
