What to expect

Take a tour of two mythical wine regions of Bordeaux: Médoc & St-Emilion. Drive through the countryside of Bordeaux and pass by ‘appellations’, which have made the reputation of Bordeaux red wines. Discover 4 wine estates within a day and enjoy a picnic lunch in Bordeaux

You'll leave at 9.45am from Bordeaux and head to the Medoc wine region. Enjoy explanations about the Bordeaux wines during the journey to the chateaux. You'll visit a prestigious Classified Growth estate of 1855. Walking around the vineyards and cellars, you'll learn about the estate’s wine making process and end with wine tastings. Then, you'll reach a charming family run estate of the region. You'll learn about their traditional way of making wine and savor their wines with French delicacies (fresh bread, cheese …).

After enjoying a casual picnic lunch in Bordeaux, you'll drive to the beautiful Saint Emilion region, kicking off your tour with a visit to an authentic and charming family-run estate along the right bank. Feel the intimacy of the private chateau as you tour the traditional vat room and cellar of this intimate estate, and then delight in a tasting class, learning the steps of wine tasting and educating your nose in identifying wine aromas. At the end of the visit, you will enjoy some of their fine wines, and then make your way to the Great Classified Growth estate overlooking the Saint Emilion vineyards.

There, you will enjoy explanations about the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle, and then reward yourself with an aperitif accompanied by some French delicacies, such as fresh bread and cheese. In the early evening, you'll discover the village of Saint Emilion, classified on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

You'll be back in Bordeaux around 7.15pm
