    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in the morning in a centrally located place in Bordeaux or at your hotel in Bordeaux if within 15min drive from the Bordeaux Tourism Office. Begin your tour with the meeting of a family of wine growers who owns two châteaux in Bordeaux vineyards : one in Haut-Médoc and the other one in Côte de Bordeaux.

    After visiting the Châteaux, you will attend an enological workshop in order to learn how to recognize wines from different grape varieties.

    Then, you will elaborate your own bottle of red wine of Bordeaux by blending several grape varieties. Of course, you will take home your bottle for an unforgettable souvenir.

    It's time to have your lunch (not included). Your guide can suggest a typical local restaurant where you will taste delicious 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. Vine-growing for cognac will be presented and compared with the Bordeaux one. Then you will visit their distillery to understand how wines become fresh eau-de-vie of cognac.

    Last but not least, you will taste their various products : Pineau des Charentes and single estate cognacs. 

    The tour is also an occasion 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.
