What You Can Expect

Full-Day Small-Group Medoc Wine Tour from Bordeaux

One of the chateaux you'll visit on your full-day wine tour

Meet your guide in the morning in Bourdeaux for a relaxing day trip into the elegant Médoc region. During each wine estate visit, you’ll learn what goes into producing such world-class wines.

Head out along the castle road to your first stop, the classified growth chateau in either the appellation of Margaux or St Julien. Sample some of the wine produced there, and then continue to the town of Pauillac. Enjoy some free time in the town to explore at your leisure, do another wine tasting or get lunch (own expense).

Rejoin your guide to do the second wine tasting included with the tour in either the appellation of Pauillac or St Estephe. Learn what makes these wines different from the ones you tasted in the morning, and taste the differences firsthand.

The final stop of the day is at another classified growth chateau, where you’ll taste more impeccable Bourdeaux wines from either the Classified Growth or Crus Bourgeois appellations.

Relax on the drive back to Bourdeaux, where your tour concludes.

A very pleasant and informative day. The guide was excellent, and at each stop we learned something new about winemaking and about the different methods used by three different wineries. Being able to taste some exceptional wines was a real treat as well.

We really lucked out with this trip. The weather wasn't great so it was a prefect day to leave the city and drink good wine. There were three of us in all which we could not have scripted and our guide, Marion, was absolutely incredible. She was so very knowledgeable about the area, the vineyards and the whole process involved in growing wine,harvesting, and everything after that. We were so fortunate to have her and you are extremely lucky to have her as an employee.

Excellent tour. Our guide Brist? was excellent. The wineries we went to were very good. Especially the last one, in the Margaux district. I learned so much from the hostess at the last winery. She was very knowledgable about the history of the vineyard as well S the production of the wine. It was a great day all around.
Have recommended it to friends who are visiting the Bordeaux area.

Excellent - enjoyable day, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any question, the wineries were very welcoming however the tour is probably better suited to people who are very keen on wine and the wine making process rather than a novice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour was excellent. It included visiting 3 beautiful chateaux and the wine presented for tasting was sublime. We had lunch at one of those beautiful chateaux had to pay for the lunch. The overall tour guide Brice was extremely good and knowledgeable. Each winery had its own guides and they also were very good explaining the history of their winery and its specific wine making process. Highly recommended.
