Excursion

Chateaux & Terroirs, on the Bordeaux wine road

From 45€ / pers

Do you have only a few hours to discover the Bordeaux wine country? Then this "flying visit" is just for you! Are you interested in seeing mythical châteaux in the Médoc? Famous estates in Saint-Emilion? The "golden" wines of Sauternes? Yes, but there is so much more! Bordeaux also has plenty of lesser-known appellations, small family estates, affordable wines, etc.

  • Tour conducted by official guides with professional card, in French and in English
  • A good overview for a first visit
  • Wine tasting at each chateau (quantity according to the French law)
  • Large group, depending on the season

With this tour you will discover this diversity during an afternoon session on Saturdays during the summer of the tourist season. The destination is Saint-Emilion, the name of a famous charming village and of delicious wines.

The tour includes a visit to one wine estate where you will learn about the winemaking process by discovering the vat room, the cellars with all the barrels, etc.. A tasting of 2 wines will be offered. Your guide will remind you at this point that you first of all taste wine with your eyes and nose!  The tour to Saint-Emilion includes one wine estate's visit and the underground church in the Saint-Emilion village.

 Departure at 1:30pm / return at 6:30pm

Bilingual tour

I loved this tour. It provides interesting information on the history of Bordeaux and its sites. The bilingual nature was especially good for me because I am studying French. The guide was knowledgeable and helpful. I definitely recommend it.

Good overview of right bank Bordeaux wines,
Peter Flynn 09/30/2021
The tour was easy to book and well organised. The balance of the visit to Saint Emilion village, and a chateaux to hear about the wine making process, was good. At the village there was the option of a walking tour including looking at an underground church, or exploring on ones own. It would have been useful if the second option had been known in advance, along with the time available. We would certainly have used the time to have something to eat, and sample the wine. St Emilion like similar places in many countries has become ‘Disneyfied’. It is very attractive but consists almost entirely of opportunities to sell wine and crafts to tourists. The chateaux visit was very good with wine production being explained very clearly, and with an informative tasting to illustrate the effect of different terrors. The tour guide was excellent and provided a lot of background on the way to and back from St Emilion. Overall a very enjoyable and informative tour, which we would recommend particularly if you don’t have time for a longer, small group option.

Nice way to explore St. Emillion
Jason White 09/30/2020
Good guide and comfortable bus. Guide was knowledgeable and professional. Short but concise tour and wine tasting. You must chose from following the guide in St. Emillion or doing your own thing. Would recommend for those without car that want to do a wine tour.
