Cordeillan-Bages is a true hidden gem in the heart of the prestigious Médoc vineyards. Day one of the Medoc wine tour will be spent settling in and spending a relaxing evening enjoying your beautiful surroundings. On day two electric bicycle hire will be arranged for you (for those who would prefer not to cycle, we can instead arrange taxi transfers to the visits that are not within walking distance of the hotel). The day will begin with a full tour of one of the Médoc’s most famous estates and your experience here will conclude with tastings of two of the Château’s celebrated wines.
After a three course lunch in a traditional French brasserie, you will then head out into the vineyards on your electric bicycles to take in the region’s beautiful scenery. During the course of the afternoon, two further tours and tastings at Cru Classé estates will be arranged for you and examples include Château Pichon-Longueville, Château Branaire-Ducru and Château Gruaud-Larose. After cycling back to the Château, you will enjoy a free evening to do as you please, perhaps dining in the hotel’s gourmet restaurant headed by Julien Lefebvre before checking out on day three.

Such a beautiful setting, we loved this hotel!
