Excursion

Chateaux & Terroirs, on the Bordeaux wine road

42 € / adult

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
  • Familal properties with the owner (if possible)
  • Wine tasting at each chateau (quantity according to the French law)
  • Saint-Emilion : visit of one winery and visit of the amazing underground church
  • Short free time in the village
  • Large group, depending on the season
  • Transportation by coach from Bordeaux

With this tour you will discover this diversity during an afternoon session every day in the tourist season. The destination is different every day* and each one has its own special charms!

 You will be welcomed by the château owner in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux & Côtes de Bourg, taste wines of all different colours in the Entre-Deux-Mers and delight in striding along the steep narrow streets of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. Furthermore, you cannot fail to be impressed by a cellar with 1,000 barrels in the Médoc!

 The tour includes a visit to two wine estates where you will learn about the winemaking process by discovering the vat room, the cellars with all the barrels, etc.. Each chateau offers a tasting of two wines. 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 village.

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

A good opportunity to discover a famous wine region of France
Jeff M 09/14/2019
Interesting tour of the region covering three chateaux and an opportunity to taste a variety of wines. The coach from central Bordeaux was comfortable and the bi-lingual tour guide on board was clearly highly knowledgeable and passionate about the region. The setting of the first vineyard was stunning. The lunch at the second vineyard was excellent and we were fortunate to have the host of that chateau on our table who was fluent in both English and French describing how she came to be an expert in this industry. The third visit was also nice but perhaps the day was beginning to stretch at that stage, possibly due to the effect of the long lunch! Nevertheless, would certainly recommend.

Excellent value wine tour

Wonderful afternoon in the Medoc region. Knowledgeable guide. Both wineries we visited were beautiful, with interesting tours and delicious tasting. I really don't think you could find a better value wine tour from Bordeaux. We also had the Bordeaux City Pass which meant we got an additional discount

High expectations, bad results

I've bought a ticket to Blaye & Bourg, ended in Entre-deux-Mers. Apparently every ticket says "Chateaux & Terroirs" without specifying where you should go. From a total of 6 wines we tasted, only one was red. I wouldn't pay 42 euros again for the tour.

Answer from Visiter Bordeaux

Dear Sir, We thank you for your message. As you can see in the description above, the destination is different every day. Your visit was booked for tuesday, September 3. The destination planned on tuesday is Entre-deux-Mers, an appellation famous for its white wines. According to the schedule, Blaye and Bourg is planned on Mondays. We are sorry for this misunderstanding, and regret that this tour didn't fit your expectations. Best regards - Bordeaux Tourism Office Team

A lovely experience with an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide . The trip proceeded very smoothly and the winery experience was very enjoyable and the only difficulty was putting down our wine glasses and leaving! Highly recommended.

Exceptional Wine tour close to Bordeaux city
Tony O'Connell 08/29/2019
The people involved in the tour were most informative and friendly. The tour of the Chateau was most interesting and I learned a lot. The wine tasting was very comprehensive. The visit to the wine bar was a treat. The owner was as amusing as he was knowledgeable. Booking was simple online, with a reduction for holders of the Citypass. It was the best morning I spent in Bordeaux and I didn't want it to end. The highlight of my visit to Bordeaux and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting the city.
