This tour was awesome and taught me so much! Seeing the vineyards and the chateaux was absolutely beautiful! The wines were delicious as well! Definitely make time for this if you are in Bordeaux!
Doing what: Bordeaux Vineyards Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip
We had a wonderful day on Emilion and Pomerol trip Our guide, Boris, was GREAT! He was very informative and very passionate about the wine and the region. St. Emilion is a beautiful town and Boris had perfect advice on what sights to see during our visit there. This day trip was a highlight of our visit to France.
Really informative wine tasting - our host answered all our questions and went overtime. He gave us some great information and wine recommendations. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely day in the Médoc region with our fantastic guide, Claire. We got to go behind the scenes at each winery and learned all about Bordeaux wine and how to detect flavors and aromas during our tasting. Recommended for wine lovers!
Super informative, great way to start the morning and had a really great workshop leader. He was very charming and had a vast knowledge of the things he was talking about. Loved it!
A nice drive through the region. Tour guide was great. We learnt a lot about French wine. We loved the stop at St Emillion.
Great Tour. Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
S and D
Interesting and educational wine tasting tours with highly personalised service in a small group situation.
Pierre, our host was excellent. He had a very good knowledge of French wines and Bordeaux wines in particular. He was entertaining and interacted with all the members of the party. The wines were excellent and the part of mixing the wines was very entertaining. The food platter was nice and complimented the wines. The only draw back from myself was the fact that we were informed prior to the booking that the wine tasting would be held in a nearby restaurant but it was held in a room in the house were we were told to meet.
This tour was fantastic. Marie is a knowledgeable guide who took us to a great vineyard where we received information on wine making and tasted some delicious wine. We would definitely do this again.
A great (but long) day! Our guide Isabelle was very knowledgeable, and the Chateaux visited all very different even down to the wine making. The first Chateau was disappointing as the very first wine offered for tasting was sour as it had been sitting in an open bottle for lord knows how long. The susequent Chateaux (Lynch Bages and Desmiral) made up for it however.
The meeting point was easy to find and the guide on time. Word of advice - the tour is likely to run over time simply because there is a lot of ground to cover.
Boris was a wonderful guide and host. He was very familiar with the area and its history. There were a total of 7 guests on our tour which was perfect for this type of location. The tour was well paced and informative. We were given sufficient time for lunch and sightseeing on our own in Saint-Emilion.
Awesome Trip. Isabelle was very knowledgable. We enjoyed the chateaus and learned a lot along the way. Highly recommended.
Our trip with tour guide Maria was a delight. Maria was very knowledgable about Bordeaux and the surrounding wine regions. We stopped at both a modern winery and a small family run winery as well as having just enough time in St. Emillon to enjoy the town. Highly recommmend going to the tasting at Le Cellier De St. Emillon, owner (from the UK) is eager to share his wines in a fun atmosphere (Maria recommended this). Wonderful having someone else take care of the driving!
I really loved this tour! As someone who has never visited vineyards or learned about the winemaking process, I felt it was as thorough as it needed to be. Additionally, everyone was exceptionally nice and welcoming, and our guide was fantastic.
