The name “Bélingard” is said to have come from the Celtic language and oral tradition, “beleen garten”, meaning the garden of the beleen or belin god”, the god of sun and war.
This idea was reinforced by the presence of a sculpted rock on this site, with a magical horizon that leaves no visitor indifferent, which served as an altar of sacrifice some 3,000 years ago. Of course, the Druids did make sacrifices but this story would be far too long to tell.
At Château Bélingard, you will have all the time you need to listen to the legends of mistletoe, oaks, wild vines, barrels and all about wines and the pleasure of sharing. Today, we no longer speak of the young virgins and soldiers consumed by the Celtic god, Beleen or Belin, but of Laurent de Bosredon’s passion for wine.
While the owner so spontaneously and enthusiastically loves to tell the story of the Celts, the Hundred Years War and Plantagenet in Aquitaine, he even more warmly and poetically speaks of his land, the different grape varieties, harvest and the art of winemaking.
