French Wine Tours in Bordeaux
Touring the vineyards and sampling world-famous Bordeaux wines is one of the great pleasures of the region. The Bordeaux wine region is a huge (150 kilometres in diameter) doughnut shape with the city of Bordeaux at its centre. To taste your way around the wine-producing districts allow at least 4 days, or take a bite at a few selected points.
We would recommend that your minimum selection includes the Médoc, to the west, St. Emilion in the east, then south to Graves and Sauternes, allowing a day for each.
While you will see “Route des Vins” signage in most of the major wine areas, it is designed more to allow you to see vineyards rather than taste wine in wineries, and a number of wineries are by appointment only. We would recommend that you take advantage of local knowledge and contacts and book for one or more days guided tours.
