Dive into France’s fertile winemaking country with this full-day private Médoc Route des Châteaux wine tasting experience from Bordeaux.
Travel along the Médoc’s wine route as you learn about the region’s rich winemaking heritage. Enjoy fine views over the sun-soaked landscapes and discover famous local appellations including Pauillac, St-Julien, Haut-Médoc and Margaux.
With fertile soils, warm climate and a winemaking heritage that stretches back centuries, the Médoc region around Bordeaux is home to some of the finest vineyards in France.
Visit three winemaking estates and gain insights into the ancient traditions and complex processes the grapes go through in their journey from vine to glass.
Taste the wines for yourself to appreciate fully the depth and complexity of flavour they offer. Merlot and Cabernet are just a few of the varietals you will be lucky to try, alongside an apéritif and light snack of delicacies from the local markets.
In the afternoon, gain further insight into Bordeaux wine with a blending session in a local tasting room. Sample a selection of different grape varietals, and then blend them to your taste to produce your own wine.
Please note: If there are any castles you specifically want to visit, feel free to ask your guide if they can be included in your tour.
