Best of Wine Tourism are everywhere in the Bordeaux vineyards. A special wine tour is dedicated to them and proposes to experience the “best of” wine tourism in Bordeaux!
In 2016, sixteen wine estates received Best Of Wine Tourism* awards thanks to their architecture, gardens, or the originality of the tours they offer.
Most of them*, located in appellations as diverse as Sauternes, Entre-Deux-Mers, Fronsac, Lalande-de-Pomerol, and Saint-Emilion are glad to welcome, on a rotating basis, 25 lucky visitors every Saturday!
The itinerary is different every week, but always includes three visits (with tour and tasting), a lunch at the second estate! This is an ideal opportunity to see beautiful family-owned estates, meet their enthusiastic owners, and sample dry white, rosé, red, and sweet white wines!
