You will drive along small roads by the Gironde river, home to many former holiday resorts. You will follow the “Route des Châteaux” to discover the prestigious Margaux, Pauillac, and Saint-Julien appellations.
Two châteaux will welcome you: an 1855 Grand Cru Classé estate and a charming family property. And naturally, you will have the opportunity to taste their wine.
You will take a tour of the property, wine storehouses and fermenting room, and discover the secrets of wine-making of Bordeaux’s finest wines, for which the city is famous around the world.
You fancy having lunch at an open-air café along the river, a quaint village inn, or a gastronomic restaurant ? It’s up to you to decide ! Great local restaurants will be indicated throughout your trip… You are guided but free to make stops or detours as and when you please, according to suggestions offered by the multimedia or audio commentary.
