Returns to original departure point
Spend a relaxed half-day on an afternoon tour from Bordeaux to sample the famous wines of either the St-Emilion or Medoc wine regions. Visit two historic châteaux to taste wines along the way.

Medoc wine tour:

Enjoy the scenic drive along the Castle Road of the Medoc region, passing well-known châteaux like Mouton-Rothschild, Latour or Margaux. Pause at a few photo-worthy places – in between learning about the history of the Bordeaux wine region from your expert guide – on your way to the first stop.

Arrive at the first château for a vineyard visit and wine tasting. You may stop at any one of several classified growth châteaux, including Paloumey, Siran, Cantenac-Brown or Lagrange. Tour the wine cellars, hear about the wine-making process and sample more wine, along with an array of French cheeses, bread and sausage.

At the second stop, visit the wine cellars and tour the château of this family-run estate, after which you'll get some additional wine-tasting expertise with a wine workshop.

St-Emilion wine tour:

Admire the beauty along the drive from Bordeaux into the St-Emilion countryside on the way to one of the following classified growth châteaux: Ferrand, Grand Mayne, Soutard or Pressac.

Sip a glass of the château's wine as you nibble on an assortment of local cheeses, fresh bread and sausage and learn about the wine-making process from your guide.

From there, head for a tour of the village of St-Emilion itself, a UNESCO-listed town that is partly carved from the surrounding rock. There are almost 800 châteaux in and around St-Emilion, one of which is your next stop.

Arrive at a family-run estate and take a guided stroll through the vineyards before adding to your growing knowledge of French wines with a wine workshop.

I really enjoyed the experience. Quintin is our guide, a very nice, knowledgeable, cool and friendly guy. We visited 2 châteaux in St Emilion for a tour and the wine testing sessions and a walk in St Emilion. It was a lovely afternoon! and no rushing at all.

We loved our trip to the Medoc region. We had a wonderful local tour guide, Quentin, who provided a wealth of knowledge about wine and Bordeaux. The two chateaus we stopped at were very informative as well. We enjoyed seeing the contrast between a smaller family run winery and much larger corporate operation.

Tour guide very knowledgeable, 5 hours perfect time for the tour. I think any longer would be too long. September weather was very nice. We were allowed to try different grapes from one of the wineries. October is their harvest so that might be an interesting time to do the tour per our guide. Tried total of 5 wines, one white and 4 red. Show you the old way of harvesting wines with use of barrels and newer way with metal machinery then barrels after. I could definitely appreciate the taste of the original process versus the new way.

We had just one day in Bordeaux and were very happy with this tour. We had only 6 people total which made for a very intimate tasting. We loved the variety of wineries and quick visit to St. Emilion. Quentin was the best!

Please note that Ilya was our tour leader. We found him to be a kind, knowledgeable, and astute wine expert. We are a couple from New York City, and have gone to many wine tours, but found this tour as the most enjoyable. Thank you Ilya.
