Workshop Bordeaux virtual reality

Château Pape Clément

Château Pape Clément is one of the most beautiful chateau in Bordeaux named after the property’s most famous owner the Pope Clement V.

Its first harvest dates back to 1252 and this makes Château Pape Clément one of the oldest wine estate in Bordeaux. The estate’s vineyard was estabilished by the family of Bertrand de Goth,  archbishop of Bordeaux, who was later elected to be the Pope and who we know under the name of Pope Clement V.

The Pope Clement V was widely known for his interest in wine and vine – growing. He grew up on a vineyard and when he later became an owner of the estate he himself was managing the chateau and enjoyed working in the vineyards. When he became Pope, he considerably contributed to the developement of viticulture particularly in the Rhône Valley, in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and all around Avignon, where he resided as a Pope.

Throughout the years, quality wine remained at the heart of the château’s history. However, we had to wait for 7 centuries for the quality of this great wine to be renown with the Grands Crus de Graves classification in 1959. This classification ranked Château Pape Clément in the top 18 estates in Bordeaux – Graves.

Thanks to the workshop you too can visit this magical winery and its stunning surroundings!
