Itinerary

Graves and Médoc Full-Day Wine Tour
Leave Bordeaux and drive southeast to Graves, a wine region situated on the left bank of the Garonne river. Stretching more than 31 miles (50 km), Graves is named for its gravelly soil, resulting from Ice Age glaciers that left quartz deposits underground. Unique among Bordeaux’s subregion, Graves is famed as much for its red wines as for its whites. It is the only district producing Grand Cru wines of both colors, most notably the Premier Grand Cru châteaux Haut-Brion (dry red and dry white) and d'Yquem (sweet white).

Visit a classified-growth château and a family-owned wine estate for guided tours, followed by wine tastings paired with French bread and cheese. During the tours, you’ll learn about the winemaking process, from vine to bottle, and discover the different varietals made in the Bordeaux regions.

Return to Bordeaux for a picnic lunch before driving north along the Château Route to Médoc, a famous wine region located on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Médoc is known for its red wines, particularly merlot and cabernet sauvignon.

Visit a charming family-owned château estate for a guided tour followed by an informative tasting session. You’ll learn proper tasting techniques and discover how to identify flavors and aromas as you sample some of the château’s wines.

Your last stop is one of the most prestigious châteaux in Bordeaux. Take a tour of this classified-growth estate before tasting its wines with bread and cheese. Afterward, head back to Bordeaux to conclude your full-day wine tour.

Médoc and St-Emilion Full-Day Wine Tour
Venture north of Bordeaux to the Médoc region, where you’ll visit a classified-growth château and family-owned wine estate for guided tours and wine tastings with bread and cheese (same itinerary as above).

Return to Bordeaux for a picnic lunch with your group before making your way to St-Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed village with Romanesque churches and prehistoric ruins stretching along steep, narrow streets. Though St-Emilion is one of the smaller regions, it is one of the main red wine areas of Bordeaux along with Médoc, Graves and Pomerol. The primary grapes grown here are merlot and cabernet franc.

Visit a charming, intimate family-run estate on the right bank, where you’ll learn tasting tips and sample the château’s wines during an informative wine-tasting session.

In the late afternoon, visit a classified-growth estate overlooking the St-Emilion vineyards. Take a tour of this prestigious château and then enjoy an aperitif with bread and cheese in the tasting room.

Follow with an evening tour of the village of St-Emilion. Learn about the history and architecture of this atmospheric village as you explore with your guide, before heading back to Bordeaux to conclude your full-day wine tour
