Château Bélingard:
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.

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, harvests and the art of winemaking. When Laurent de Bosredon returned to the estate in 1980, after having decided to interrupt his career in Paris, he took over from his father, Pierre de Bosredon, and began to work this clayey -chalky land to give it its prestige of yesteryear. Château Bélingard was already well ranked in the 1903 édition of Féret’s "Bergerac et ses vins", with 100 barrels of red wine and 50 of white wine. In the 1994 edition, it is still the leading wine producer of the famous Monbazillac and Bergerac appellations. Read less
