Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and small group of no more than 8 people in central Bordeaux and travel by minivan into the Medoc wine region. Follow part of the scenic Route des Chateaux en-route to your first destination – a Grand Cru wine chateau in the Margaux and St Julien appellation.

    Uncover the secrets of Bordeaux’s famous red wines and hear about the importance of ‘terroir’ on a guided tour of the chateau, then sample a variety of fine Cabernet Sauvignon wines during an expert-led wine tasting.

    Next, expand your knowledge of French wines with a tasting experience at a family-run winery, where you’ll learn about the complex classification system of Bordeaux wines and discover the art of producing ‘Grand Cru’ wines. Depending on the day of your visit, take part in a wine blending workshop (on Wednesdays), where you’ll have chance to create your very own unique wine, or indulge in a wine and cheese tasting (on Sundays), featuring Haut-Medoc appellation wines.

    With your appetite sated and a newfound appreciation of French wine, return to Bordeaux, where your tour ends back in the city center.

    This was a typical wine tasting experience. Some things were very good and others average or below average so I’m rating it in the middle. The tour guide “Camie” was very sweet and knowledgeable; and was born and raised in Bordeaux. Her family owned a vineyard for many years but

    Hello Anne, Thank you for your feedback. I’m really sorry to hear that you didn’t fully enjoyed your wine tour with us. The Medoc wineries are very traditional and rare are the ones that serve nibbles with their wines. This is why we bring some locally sourced produce to match the wines at the end of a tour. Although, unlike other local operators, we only serve locally made produce for more authenticity and...Taste. You had 6 wine tasting on this tour and during the 'apero' you could have asked for more if needed, our guide would have topped you up for sure! Regarding your comment about eating food in beetween each wine, I have to slightly disagree. It would actually mess up with your palet (espacially cheese) and would alter your senses and so your judgment. Just imagine, a wine critic can taste up to 100 wines a day during Bordeaux primeurs, having food each time would...well I guess you see where this is going :) Next time, book a private Bordeaux experience with us and we will prep a food & wine feast that you will remember!!! Kindly, Jonathan

    This was an enjoyable and informative visit to two contrasting Chateaux, including tours of each winery, discussion of their wine making methods and a tasting at each of 3 wines, including the premium Chateaux label in each case. Tours and tasting were lead by a member of each
