What You Can Expect

Bordeaux Shore Excursion: Full-Day Private Medoc Wine Tour

Bordeaux Shore Excursion

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.

Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Bordeaux port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Drive through the countryside and the visit to three wineries outstanding. Would highly recommend for those interested in the Medoc wines.

We booked this tour from Viator. Three of us had a private wine tour of the Médoc region. The Médoc offers some of the best wine-tasting opportunities in the entire country. We visited one winery with our excellent guide, Yugo, Then we had a lunch on our own, followed by a visit to a second winery. Both wineries charge a fee for wine tasting. Then at our request Yugo was able to cancel the third winery and give the three of us a city tour of Bordeaux instead. He was very thoughtful and considerate in modifying the tour to suit our taste. He gave us more than a full day tour and I highly recommend him. Yugo works for Ophorus Tours.

The booking was painless although it did require a phone call. Advanced phone calls to the operator produced a very specialized tour for our group. We were experienced wine drinkers and collectors and the operator provided a very experienced tour guide. He lived and worked in the California wine industry for several years. David had no accent and spoke perfect english. The experience surpassed our wildest expectations.
