Food and wine are a huge part of life in France and the area of Bordeaux is no exception. While you’re in Bordeaux, one of the premier wine regions of France, take advantage of its culinary bounty on a full-day wine and food tour. You’ll visit four wine estates and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Free drinks included
  • Lunch included
  • Led by a local guide
Your full-day guided wine and culinary tour starts as you leave central Bordeaux by air-conditioned coach, heading for the legendary Margaux appellation (winemaking region), approximately one hour's drive north of Bordeaux. A must-visit place for wine connoisseurs and novices alike, this beautiful area encompasses several villages and vineyards that produce some of Bordeaux’s finest, and some say identifiable, red wines.

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring some of the most distinctive chateaux (estates). Visit Château Prieuré-Lichine and learn the history of the Margaux appellation and the 1885 classification for which it is famed. Next visit Château Rauzan-Gassies, home to a unique cluster of vineyards that predominantly produces the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

After breaking for a gourmet lunch at Le Savoie, a renowned Margaux restaurant, your Bordeaux wine and culinary tour continues to Château Kirwan, a family-run winery that has become notable for its aromatically richer wines.

The esteemed Château La Tour de Bessan is the last chateau on your itinerary. Here you’ll learn about all the different grape varieties and the precise art of blending them together in order to make these incredible Bordeaux wines.
