When your cruise ship arrives in Bordeaux and you have only a single day to see the best of this area, book a private wine tour to the Médoc, one of France’s most well-known wine regions. The Médoc produces some of the most renowned red wines in the Bordeaux wine region and offers some of the best wine-tasting opportunities in the whole of France. You will visit famous classified growth vineyards and castles, where you can taste wines from the Médoc and other French regions.


  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Free drinks included
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
Throughout the day, you can admire some of the most beautiful chateaus in France as you enjoy three visits to wineries.

This personalized, private wine tour is an excellent shore excursion from Bordeaux. After leaving the port, you’ll travel in an air-conditioned vehicle to one of the most renowned wine regions in the world – Médoc. You will follow the castle road and visit some of the Médoc’s famous wineries.

Your first visit and wine-tasting experience will take place in a classified growth chateau of the Margaux or St Julien. Here, the wine produced is a combination of elegance and class. You will then head for Pauillac, where you will have some free time to enjoy lunch and taste more wine.

Next, you’ll enjoy your second visit and wine-tasting session in a classified growth chateau of the Pauillac or St Estephe. Here, the wines are a little more concentrated, producing a more voluptuous style of wine.

Finally, your tour will end at La Winery, where a five-glass wine-tasting session awaits you! During this tasting, you will learn about other famous Bordeaux wineries such as Pomerol, Cotes de Castillon, Sauternes and Graves.

Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Rodney W, October 2014

The booking was painless although it did require a phone call. Advanced phone calls to the operator produced a very specialized tour for our group. We were experienced wine drinkers and collectors and the operator provided a very experienced tour guide. He lived and worked in the California wine industry for several years. David had no accent and spoke perfect english. The experience surpassed our wildest expectations.
