Les Crus Classes de Graves
Located at the gateway to Bordeaux, the Graves great growth châteaux really know how to welcome visitors – as amply proved by this short gourmet adventure.Considered as the cradle of Bordeaux wines, the Graves and Pessac-Leognan appellations South of Bordeaux are also the closest to the city.

- Learn about the winemaking process
Every Thursday, two châteaux belonging to the 1953 classification of great growths* will provide you with experience matching wine and food. This option has three advantages: it is close to the city, very intense, and also rather brief, since you will be back in Bordeaux by 3 pm.
The red and white wines are suited to just about all foods. The reds are wonderful with both traditional and modern cuisine, while the whites have the unusual ability to age well.
The first visit at 10am includes a cellar tour and a tasting of wine with cheese, chocolate, dried fruit, or nuts as the château owners prefer.
The second visit at 11:30am is followed by lunch. These estates, some of which are world-famous, extend a warm, relaxed welcome to visitors. Lunch will be served at the table in a traditional French style!
Your return to the city centre at 3:00pm will leave you plenty of time for further discoveries!
Departure from the Bordeaux Tourist Office at 9:15am, return 3:00pm

Answer from Visiter BordeauxDear 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
