Itinerary
Meet your group and guide in central Bordeaux and travel by air-conditioned coach to explore the wine regions of Medoc, St-Emilion, or Sauternes (depending on the day). Along the way, listen as your guide explains the history of French winemaking and the wines that put Bordeaux on the map. Hear about different grapes, the importance of “terroir,” and the seemingly complex classification system that includes grand cru, premier cru, and AOC.

During the tour, stop at two different wineries or wine chateaux, where you have chance to stroll the vineyards and explore the underground wine cellars. At each winery, enjoy a guided wine tasting and sample a selection of red, white, or rosé wines. Based on your preferences, your guide can help recommend other varietals you might enjoy.

Your tour ends back in central Bordeaux.

Enjoyable but could be improved

Although this was a fun way to spend an afternoon I’m afraid it didn’t live up to our expectations. Our tour guide was quite strict and told us that we weren’t allowed to eat on the coach (despite the trip being at lunchtime and being...More
