Embark for a half-day of discovery in the area of Bordeaux !
You will visit two Chateaux and get to taste some delicious wine.
Bordeaux has plenty of lesser-known appellations, small family estates and affordable wines, that you will discover during this half-day tour. Your guide will show you some marvels of the region : you will be welcomed by a château owner in Bourg and Blaye, taste wines of all different colours in the Entre-Deux-Mers, and enjoy a stride along the steep narrow streets of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. In the Médoc, you will not fail to be impressed by the 1,000 barrels cellars !
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.
You will also receive entrances to the Cité du Vin, that you’ll be able to visita at your own pace. The audioguide included with your ticket will alow you to make the best of your visit ! You will discover the nature of wine, its history among different cultures and times, its meaning and impact all over the world.
In addition to the display and all the information you will learn, you will be amazed by the architecture of the very unique, curvy building design.
At the end of your visit, you’ll be able to enjoy the 360° view from the Cité’s belvedere, while enjoying a glass of wine.
