    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in the morning in a central place in Cognac or at your hotel in Cognac if within 15min drive from the Cognac Tourism Office. Start your tour with a family of wine growers who owns two châteaux in Bordeaux vineyards : one in Haut-Médoc and the other one in Côte de Bordeaux and will gladly present you their estate.

    After visiting the Châteaux, you will attend an enological workshop where you will learn how to recognize wines from different grape varieties. There, you will create your own bottle of Bordeaux red wine by blending several grape varieties. Of course, you will take back home your personalized bottle.

    Have your lunch (not included). Your guide can suggest a typical restaurant where you will taste local French food.

    In the afternoon, you will visit two cognac estates and meet the producers during a private visit of their wine cellars and distilleries. They will present the vine-growing process and you will be able to compare it with the Bordeaux one. Then you will go to their distillery to understand how wines become fresh eau-de-vie of cognac.

    Finally, after the theory, the practice. You will taste their various products : Pineau des Charentes and single estate cognacs. 

    The tour gives you also the opportunity to discover Romanesque churches, typical sceneries of a very beautiful, discreet and peaceful region, close to the city of Bordeaux.

    At the end of the tour, your guide will drive you back to Bordeaux.
