Full-Day Medoc Wine Tour

1. Full-Day Medoc Wine Tour

Departing from a central location in Bordeaux, this small group tour explores the beautiful Medoc wine-growing region of France. You will head towards the famous wine-producing appellations such as Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac and Saint Estephe. You will enjoy 3 visits in Classified Growth or Cru Bourgeois estates that have been carefully selected for their exceptional setting and quality of wine. You will learn all there is to know about the history of the estates, the wine making process, as well as the techniques used during wine making. A wine tasting session follows the visits. The Medoc area covers approximately 5,700 hectares of declared vineyards, producing an average 300,000 hectoliters of wine per year. Of the grape varieties permitted, 50% of the viticultural area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec. Also allowed within the AOC regulations are the varieties Cabernet Franc and Carménère. After your tasting sessions, follow the castle road to see some of the most famous châteaux of the region, such as Chateau Margaux, Chateau Palmer, or Chateau Pichon Longueville.

based on 66 reviews

very well organized tour with a total of 8 participants in a Van Mercedes. The guide Karim put on a show of his own, almost a comedian who very sympathetically led the tour. We visited 2 wineries initially, especially Lamotte-Bergeron, which has an audiovisual presentation all prepared for the visitor, in addition to offering us the grapes to try. Lunch in Pauillac, an almost deserted city, unfortunately there are not many options in the region. Visit to another winery and return to Bordeaux at the appointed time.

Well worth doing, small group in a comfortable mini van, Alex was our driver and was very informative about the region. We visited 3 Chateaus and had a lunch stop, lunch is not included in price.
