We offer two classic Bordeaux wine tours: one in the Left Bank, the Medoc wine region, and the other in the Right Bank, including the St. Emilion and Pomerol appellations.
Our Medoc Bordeaux wine tour is designed to reveal the character of some of the world’s greatest wines, produced in 7 districts on the left bank of the Gironde including: northern, central and southern Medoc, St. Estephe, Pauillac, St. Julien and Margaux. We suggest devoting four days to the Medoc Bordeaux wine tour, including one complete wine estate visit (with tasting) in each appellation, which yields the relaxed rhythm of two visits per day.
A Bordeaux wine tour that expends so much time on just a few vineyards may seem extravagant. Taking a tour devoted only to wine appreciation is, in and of itself, a luxuriant act. We believe you will profit from taking enough time to savor each step of the way. If you have more time to devote to your tour, we can make an even more complete itinerary.
Our approach to wine touring gives you the leisure to relish each visit fully, and allows time both for viewing sites of general interest, and for appreciating fine wines in their best context: relaxed meals where the wines are complemented by superb regional cuisine that highlights and elicits the subtleties and complexities of the wine itself. As we suggest only one vineyard visit per appellation during our tours, we can either include your personal favorite for each or suggest ours among first, second or third growths. Don’t be surprised if all our suggestions are not first growths, since there are many less known vineyards that produce wines equal in quality, at a fraction of the cost.
Our excursion can begin in Paris with a 3-hour high-speed (TGV) train ride to the region, or we can meet you in the area at either the airport, train station or your Bordeaux address.
Your knowledgeable native English-speaking guide will then escort you throughout Bordeaux in an upscale air-conditioned vehicle taking you to some of the very best vineyards.
