Google Streetview to Share Inside View of Bordeaux Estates

Decanter and others are reporting that Google Streetview will offer virtual, 3-dimensional visits of Bordeaux and individual châteaux once reserved for on-site tours. The filming is part of Google’s plan “to document UNESCO World Heritage sites.” Château Lafon-Rochet in Saint-Estèphe is one of the first estates to join the program. The Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion, which was inscribed as a World Heritage location in 1999, is to be filmed as well.
