Overview
The Bordeaux wine region is one of the most famous in France and produces some of its most prestigious wines. This tour visits two wine chateaux in the St-Emilion or Medoc appellations, where you enjoy guided wine tastings, and learn all about French wine, including an explanation of “terroir” and its complex classification system.
Highlights
  • Visit wine chateaux in Medoc, St-Emilion, or Sauternes
  • Two wine tastings: sample a variety of red, white, or rosé wines
  • Guided tour: Learn more about the French winemaking process
  • Convenient round-trip transport from Bordeaux
What to Expect
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 the 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.

The tour guides on each vineyard were friendly and informative. The sample was very minimum and hardly enough to taste. The guide on our bus could have been more interesting.

We went on an a half day trip to Saint Emilion. The morning was well organised and there was enough time to really enjoy the experience. A visit to the St Emilion village, free time to wander, the winery tour and tastings plus informative conversation as you travel to and from

On our tour today we visited the St. Emillion village followed by Chateau de Pressac. Each had beautiful offerings. The guide had plenty of knowledge about the region. However, the size of the group was very large which meant the pace of the tour was extremely slow. This may

It was a really pleasant trip to two vineyards where you learn about wine making and at the same time see the French countryside. Definite value for the money.
