Ok folks! Sometimes topics are too serious on snooth. Not that I don't appreciate the profesionnalism of snooth but sometimes I like to play, don't you. Here's this weekend challenge. What is the name of this winery? And what is somewhat special their that you don't find anywhere else?
Bonsoir à tous,
Je trouve que les sujets discutés sont parfois intenses sur snooth. Quoique j'apprécie énormément le professionnalisme de ce site j'aime aussi beaucoup m'amuser. Alors, voici le défi de cette fin de semaine. Quel est le nom de ce vignoble? Et qu'est-ce qu'on y retrouve de particulier comme nul autre vignoble?

C'est Château Smith Haut Lafitte.
I believe they have mineral springs and a health spa there.
Do I win a prize? ;)

Kudos, Hexley. Would have been easier if Stratego had posted the photo on this page:
When I first saw the photo above, I was thinking more Burgundy (a la Les Hospices de Beaune) than Bordeaux, from the architectural style. Though the feeling of open space around the building is probably more Bordeaux...

Oh, well actually I didn't even think to check to link to the photo, I just recognized it from an article I read a few months ago. It's pretty distinct looking, after all.

Of course if you guys cheated and you copy and paste the URL of the picture it was easy. Don't forget that it's a game and only you know if you cheat.
I'm certain that Hexley didn't cheat though and he's our winner for this week. He wins a bottle of wine the next time he's in Montreal. Just contact me on snooth prior to your arrival to get your prize.
The answer was right but what is special (unique) about this winery is not the spa. It's the art! Indeed statues and sculpture are located across the terroir. Something I have never seen before.
See you next week!
