This day tour is ideal for those who are looking for a low-cost and simple introduction to the wines of Bordeaux. You will meet your English-speaking driver/guide at a central departure point in the city centre for a full day transported and guided tour of the internationally famed left-bank Médoc. You will visit three Châteaux, learning particularly about the Cabernet Sauvignon grape and gaining an insight into what makes those big, bold reds so renowned.
You will learn all about the fascinating wine making process from press to bottle, and each tour will conclude with one or two tastings of the Château’s wine. You will have free time for lunch on the tour, and your guide will be more than happy to make recommendations depending on how hungry you are feeling on the day. At the end of the day, you will be escorted back to the centre of Bordeaux.
