Discover the Bordeaux vineyard!

Are you eager to visit the wine regions of Bordeaux but you don’t know where to start? Let us guide you! Whether you’re keen for a getaway in a side-car or an iconic Citroën 2CV,  a wine cruise or a guided tour, here are some suggestions to enjoy a fun, playful or romantic trip in the vineyard. Everything is planned in advance; you just have to enjoy your day!

Explore the vineyards in a side-car

The adventure begins just outside your hotel or in front of the Bordeaux Tourist Office. After a quick rundown of the schedule, hop on a vintage side-car and embark on a 4-hour adventure accompanied by your private driver and guide! The ride takes you along small paths amidst natural scenery and brings you right in the middle of the vineyards. Two stopovers are planned during each trip: for the tours in the Médoc and in the Graves, you will visit two Chateaux classés and enjoy a tasting session at the end. The third tour, in Saint Emilion, includes a visit/tasting as well as a tour of the medieval village.

A day in a winemaking estate

Vous n'êtes de passage que quelques jours et vous aimeriez découvrir le vignoble de Bordeaux ? Cette formule est pour vous ! Chaque jour la destination change pour vous offrir, le temps d'un après-midi, un aperçu d'une région viticole (Médoc, Blayais et Bourgeais, Entre-deux-Mers, Graves et Sauternais) ou d'une appellation (Saint-Emilion).

À vous de choisir... ou de tester chaque destination ? Le guide conférencier qui vous accompagne vous réserve des surprises différentes à chaque escapade comme la rencontre avec le propriétaire d'un Château, la visite d'un chai aux 1000 barriques ou encore une dégustation de toutes les couleurs du Bordeaux. À chaque fois vous visitez deux propriétés (le cuvier, les chais…) incluant la dégustation de deux vins (excepté à Saint-Emilion où vous visiterez une propriété ainsi que l'église monolithe souterraine dans le village).
