Chateaux & Terroirs, on the Bordeaux wine road
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.
