A passion for wine – Grace McCrocklin

During our excursion, my favorite aspect was visiting the vineyard at Chateau Lastours. I really like the history of the chateau, as well as the remnants of that history that exist today, like the garden and the pigeon coop. However, the best part of the visit was our guide, the head of the vineyard as well as the patriarch of the family. Both the chateau and the vineyard have stayed in the same family for generations, and when our guide spoke about them, I could hear his pride for his family and the history of his business. The passion of Chateau Lastours, for their vineyard as well as their history, was the most poignant part of the trip for me.
