    Spotted this place on the drive in to Bordeaux from where we were staying during our Summer hols this year. It is located by the D1113 just south of Cerons. Saw it from the road, the red lettering on the side of the building standing out from the undergrowth. Decided it required further attention after checking it out on Google Earth. So early one beautiful August morning set off for this place as the sun rose. The location amongst the vines was really idyllic and made for a relaxed mooch. The place itself isn’t spectacular. It is a former Maison Degustation where people would have come to taste and buy wine. There’s very little on the web and have not been able to fine any history about the place. Clearly though it has been abandoned for some time and is in the advanced stages of decay. The vineyard that surrounds it is very much still in use but this place must have become surplus to requirements.

    The approach to this place was, to say the least, rather beautiful:

    No doubt about what this place used to be:

    This is what caught my eye from the road:

    Nature has very much taken over:

    More hints of the buildings former usage:

    Inside is far gone to say the least:

    With nothing of particular interest:

    Just good old rotting wood and decay:

    Not quite your abandoned chateaux but still quite photogenic:

    Loved the colour of the lettering as the sun finally caught up with proceedings:
