I 've booked a trip to Bordeaux for 2 and booked accommodation in Bordeaux City center between 4-10 October. Unfortunately, the accommodation doesn't have a car park so I won't be hiring a car.
I was planning to spend a few days in the city centre, then days trips to:
(i) St Emilion;
(ii) Wine tour either around Medoc or Grave (as I generally prefer Cab Sav).
(i) Does anyone know if you are able to get to wineries/vineyard by public transportation around St Emilion and if so, which ones would they recommend?
(ii) Any recommendation for 1 day wine tour for Medoc or Grave which picks you up from Bordeaux City center? How much is a normal one day tour for 2 (preferably in a smaller group tour)?
(iii) What are the famous vineyards in Medoc/Grave?
(iv) Or is there is a 2 day wine tour that does both St Emilion & Medoc/Grave?
(v) Are there any wine tasting classes based in Bordeaux city center that you may recommend?
Any thoughts/suggestions advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
