Castle & University of Wine

Today, let’s look at a castle, not a church.

In nearby Suze-la-Rousse, the 12th-14th century Chateau de Suze-la-Rousse towers over the village. The chateau has tall windows, thick buttresses, and storybook crenelated toweres. There is also an interesting park just adjacent to the chateau.

On the grounds of the chateau is a internationally recognized University of Wine. The university was created in 1978, and is a private school giving professional education in the different domains of wine, including growing, commercial management and marketing. It also includes a seminar center, a large documentation center, a specialized library, and, of course, wine tasting facilities.

Perhaps one of our group, who is an avid wine fan, will want to stop by.
