Disembark from your cruise ship in the port of Bordeaux and meet your guide for an unforgettable wine tour in the Médoc region. Travel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle from the port along the castle road out of Bordeaux toward some of the best-known wineries in France.
The first stop on your wine tour is in either the Margaux or St Julien appellations in a Classified Growth chateau, where you’ll sample the first wines of the day. Next, head for Pauillac to stop for lunch (own expense) or sample more wine on your own.
The next stop on the wine tour is in either the Pauillac or St Estephe appellations in another Classified Growth chateau, where you’ll do another wine tasting. See if you can taste the differences from the wines you tried earlier.
The final stop of the day is at La Winery, where you’ll do a five-glass guided wine tasting. There, sample some of the other wines for which the Bordeaux region is known — such as Cotes de Castillon, Sauternes, Pomerol and Graves — before the return trip to Bordeaux and your ship.
