Highlights

  • Led by a local guide
  • Free drinks included
Leave the hustle and bustle of Bordeaux behind you and travel out into the countryside to discover the vineyards and wineries for which the area is famous. From well-known estates in Saint-Emilion and Sauternes to family-run vineyards across the region, Bordeaux has a fascinating winemaking heritage and a strong reputation for quality. This half-day tour is ideally suited to those keen to discover the Bordeaux wine country but with limited time to spare.

As the views from your coach change from urban city to rural countryside, listen as your guide goes into detail about the area’s winemaking history and traditions. Wine is believed to have been produced in the region from as far back as the 8th century and it’s an industry of which many of the locals are very proud.

The tour visits two different wineries and vineyards every day (except in Saint-Emilion where only one is visited) and each one has something different to offer. Perhaps head to the beautiful Médoc territories to explore the cellars and discover the delicious wines produced there. Meet the winery owner or manager and enjoy a guided tour of the estate. Stroll the rolling hills along row after row of grape-laden vines, and admire the beautiful scenery this part of France has to offer. Enjoy two tastings along the way and gain an appreciation of the delicate fruitiness of the wines produced.

After five hours exploring the Bordeaux wine country and enjoying tastings, your tour will come to an end.

This tour was really good !

A great tour, VERY good value. The tour guide was excellent and provided an English translation when necessary. The vinyard owner and the tour guide had great personalities which made for a very comical tour at times!

One very small thing- the ticket says you can just take your print out but you actually needed to pop into the information shop to get an official printed version which we discovered just as the tour was leaving. This could probably be made clearer but that really is the only thing I would change!
