My partner and I recently went on a full day wine tour to the Medoc region. We found the trip to be very interesting. At the two chateaus and one modern winery we visited someone explained how they make their wine and we felt we learned a lot about wine and the making of wine. We were lucky enough to be there at harvesting time. We were able to watch while the trucks laden with grapes came into the winery and saw the machines and people at work during the intitial process of de-stemming, sorting and crushing. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone interested in tasting good wine and learning about the production process. If you want to go to many wineries and just taste wine this is not the tour for you.
Only down side was the lunch time. We were dropped off at a venue across the road from two restautrants and everyone on the tour wandered around trying to find the best place to eat and by chance all ended up at the same place, a cafe/wine bar. Most shops were closed and the restaurants that were open were fairly pricey. I think Ophorous should arrange lunch at one of these restaurants for the group to avoid the confusion. We would have been happy with a salad roll but could not find a shop selling them.
After we got back in the van our guide told us she had bought a sandwich but she had not given us the information about where to buy something simple like that.
