Bordeaux chateaux open gates to Google Streetview

Chateau de la Brede

Drinking a great Bordeaux and want to know more about the chateau and the family behind it? Google has armed a team of videographers with cameras to go inside select chateaux in the wine capital of France and show armchair travelers and drinkers where their vino is made.

Videographers have captured behind-the-scenes footage of nine chateaux using backpack-mounted cameras referred to as the Street View Trekker, as well as the Googe Street View Car and trolleys.

The wineries include Chateau Lafon-Rochet, Chateau de la Brede, Chateau de Malle, Chateau de Pressac, Chateau d’Agassac, Chateau Guadet, Chateau Coutet, Chateau La Conseillante and Chateau Corbin Michotte. Google street mappers will also be capturing photos of the town of Saint-Emilion.
