There are few things more captivating than a great bottle of wine, but ghost stories certainly run it close. If you fancy a little more chill to your glass, here are five of the most haunted wineries worth a visit.
Château de Brissac
First built in the 11th Century, Château de Brissac has had plenty of time to accumulate some serious history. Situated in the heart of the Loire Valley and originally designed as a fortress by the Counts of Anjou, the Château is actually the tallest castle in France.
Jacques de Brézé was a former owner of this prestigious building, but he murdered his wife, Charlotte, and her lover after he caught them in the act. It is their spirits, and Charlotte (aka La Dame Verte) in particular, who haunt the Château to this day.
Besides a couple of ghosts, Château de Brissac has plenty of other interesting offerings, not least several portrait galleries, a chapel and even a private opera house. Unsurprisingly, it has become a popular hotel destination and, perhaps most importantly, it produces some highly regarded wines from its own vineyards.
