visit and taste

Located in the northwest part of Saint-Emilion, next to the Pomerol appellation, Château La Dominique has been a well-reputed estate for many years. Bordered by prestigious neighbours in a "cultural landscape" designated a UNESCO world heritage site since 1999, this 29-hectare estate is extremely well-situated. A Saint-Emilion grand cru classé, La Dominique has never stopped reinventing itself. For instance, an avant-garde cellar designed by world famous architect Jean Nouvel was housed in the traditional 18th century château in 2013. The vat room is now an integral part of the historic building, perfectly illustrating the estate's desire to respect the past while keeping up with the times. After renovating the vineyard and modernising the winemaking facilities, the Fayat family felt that it was also important to make Château la Dominique a place for social interaction, tastings, etc., and opened a convivial restaurant there.

La Terrasse Rouge, Château La Dominique's rooftop restaurant, offers magnificent views over the vineyards.


Nearly 50,000 people visited La Dominique in 2017. The château is open every day from April to October (10 am to 7 pm) including weekends and public holidays, and Tuesday to Saturday (10 am to 6 pm) from November to March.
