This private half-day small group wine tour packs a lot of delights into a few hours. On this exclusive private wine tour of Graves organized by Ophorus, you will enjoy tasting delicious Bordeaux wines.
Starting in the city of Bordeaux, a short drive in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan brings you out of the city to the picturesque countryside plains and rolling hills of the left bank wine producing area.This is the heart of Bordeaux’s famous wine region, where many vineyards carry the Graves and Pessac Léognan AOC designation. Each of these local wineries produce vintages with distinct soil features backed by a long winemaking heritage. Located South of Bordeaux, this wine region is known to be the original wine producing region of Bordeaux. This is the area where the Romans first planted grapes just about 2,000 years ago.
Your first major stop on this personalized Graves half day trip will be in one of the local estates for a visit and tasting at a Grand Cru château. Here, we have scheduled an appointment for you. You will be greeted at the château and will get to tour and taste different vintages in this carefully selected domain.
For your second stop, discover the Pessac-Léognan wine producing area. This quite recent appellation used to be part of the Graves. Due to its recognition of producing high quality red and white wines, the area was rewarded with a communal appellation in 1987. One of the most prestigious wineries of the appellation is château Haut-Brion that was granted the 1er Grand Cru Classé level of 1855, unique château to be located outside the Medoc and Sauternes wine producing regions. Upon arrival in the wine region, we stop at a carefully selected winery. Here, you will have the opportunity to taste white and red wines.
Finally, you will head back to Bordeaux where the wine tour concludes after having learned a lot about this famous wine producing area.
This half-day excursion can be taken as a morning tour or an afternoon one.
