Do you have only a few hours to discover the Bordeaux wine country? Then this "flying visit" is just for you!
Are you interested in seeing mythical châteaux in the Médoc? Famous estates in Saint-Emilion? The "golden" wines of Sauternes? Yes, but there is so much more! Bordeaux also has plenty of lesser-known appellations, small family estates, affordable wines, etc.
We can help you discover this diversity during an afternoon session every day during the tourist season.
There is a different destination every day* and each one has its own special charms!
You will be welcomed by the château owner in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux & Côtes de Bourg, taste wines of all different colours in the Entre-Deux-Mers, and delight in striding along the steep narrow streets of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. Furthermore, you cannot fail to be impressed by a cellar with 1,000 barrels in the Médoc!
The tour includes a visit to two estates (vat room, cellars, etc.) and a tasting of two wines. Your guide will remind you at this point that you first of all taste wine with your eyes and nose! The tour to Saint-Emilion includes one wine estate's visit and the underground monuments in the village.
Departure at 1.30 pm / return at 6.30 pm
All the visits are conducted by official guides with professional card »
