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 2018, twenty-two wine estates received Best Of Wine Tourism* awards thanks to their architecture, gardens, or the originality of the tours they offer.
Two tours are offered this year on a rotating basis: Tour n°1 with the Médoc appellations or tour n° 2 with Sauternes, Bordeaux-Entre-Deux-Mers, Fronsac, Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. 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 different wines!
