Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is a luxurious spot near Bordeaux to stay in the wine country, enjoy a spa, haut cuisine and wine.
The story of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, Grand Cru Classe, began in the 14th century, when Verrier du Dubosc signed deeds for this estate. At the time, there were vines planted on the estate. George Smith, a Scottish wine merchant, acquired the property in the mid-18th century.
Later, in 1842, Mayor of Bordeaux, Lodi Martin Duffour-Dubergier, acquired the chateau. It has become an exceptional grand cru.
Florence and Daniel Cathiard, former Olympians, fell in love with the estate in 1990. The winery and the estate underwent a major renovation. A spa and the hotel were added. The chateau produces one of the highest-rated wines in Bordeaux.
