Appreciative of wine tour put on by the Tourism Centre in Bordeaux

The people working at the Tourism are super - they are friendly and knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to go in several times to book a tour, obtain information and buy the City Guide for 72 hours, worth every penny. The driver on the wine tour navigated the roads well, and the guide spoke throughout the whole road trip, very knowledgeable. I was really pleased that the Wednesday tour was for the wines in Sautern and Graves section of Bordeaux as I like sweet and not dry wines and specifically had asked for a sweet wine tour, so I couldn't believe my luck The only flaw is that we did end up going to a dry wine chateau near the city of Bordeaux, which is not what I had been told, and to one sweet wine chateau. The tour of the Sautern wine grove was interesting, well orchestrated and we had the actual tasting in the store area, where they have a well-lit room, and many different varieties on display for sale. The wine was also good. The second wine grove/chateau is going organic next year, good information, but they did not sell much and that could be that they need to re-vamp their store so that tastings can take place there. The actual store is dark, small and had 3 bottles of wine under plexi-glass, so it was not inviting. So, I appreciate the experience for such a reasonable price, and the people on the bus tour, the guide and driver were nice.
