Excursion

[September] Châteaux & Terroirs

Dès 45€ / pers.

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)
  • Large group, depending on the season

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

I have been on many wine tours in Bordeaux when I have guests in town and this one was the perfect value for your money. It is so much more convienent to have someone drive you to the chateaus and you get the benefit of a great tour guide. Brigitte, our guide, was a delight and was very knowlegeable. The two chateaus we visited in Blaye were lovely and we had a great experience!

I liked the choice of chateau we visited, the guide was nice, gave a lot of interesting information and even a short tasting course. Definitely would recommend to those looking to get the first taste of what Medoc region has to offer.
