Overview
Bordeaux, the largest wine growing region in France, is renowned for its full-bodied reds. This value tour combines two top-selling wine experiences in one day, saving you both time and money. First, sample wines from all around France during a Bordeaux wine workshop, including lunch. Then, visit two châteaux in the St-Emilion region and discover the secrets of winemaking with guided tours and tastings.
Highlights
  • Three expert-led wine tastings and two winery tours
  • Sample wines from Bordeaux, Côtes du Rhône, and Burgundy
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed village of St-Emilion
  • Personalized experience with a small group 
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Bordeaux for a day enjoying two top-selling wine tours for a comprehensive introduction to French wine and transportation by minivan. Start the day with a 2-hour wine tasting workshop in Bordeaux and sample wines from all around France, including popular wine regions such as Burgundy, Côtes du Rhône, the Loire Valley, and, of course, Bordeaux. After lunch at a local venue, set out to explore the vineyards of St-Emilion, one of the most famous appellations in the Bordeaux wine region. Uncover the secrets of French winemaking, “terroir,” and wine classifications during guided tours of two wine châteaux and enjoy guided wine tastings at each destination. Finally, visit St-Emilion for a walking tour of the medieval village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before returning to Bordeaux.
