What you can expect

Embark on a wine tour full of discovery and robust flavours. Delight in the variety of samples that include cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and malbec. This wine region has strict rules on the types of wine they are allowed to cultivate, resulting in a high quality which you're sure to appreciate.

Depart from a centrally located pick-up point in Bordeaux and head towards the famous Medoc wine region. During this full day tour, you visit 3 wine tasting sessions in cru-bourgeois (classified-growth) estates that have been carefully selected for their exceptional setting and quality of wine.

During these stops, you learn all there is to know about the history of the estates and the wine-making process. Once you have a better appreciation for the hard work that goes into cultivating a perfect product, sample several wines from each Chateau.

The wineries are usually located in Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac, or the Haut Medoc appellations. During the day, follow the castle road and prepare your cameras for stops in front of the most famous Chateaux, such as Chateau Margaux, Chateau Palmer, or Chateau Pichon Longueville.
