VINTAGE BORDEAUX

The Ultimate splurge for the Bordeaux connoisseur...

 

Fulfill the exciting dream of every wine enthusiast by participating hands-on in the Bordeaux harvest. Learn to bring in the grapes and participate in the wine making process. It is like having your own Chateau!

 

As the world's capital of wine, Bordeaux is famous for its rich heritage and French lifestyle. This historical city sitting on the bank of the Garonne River grew to become the hub of the wine trade. Bordeaux features some of Europe's most charming and impressive architecture, along with great food. We will travel along the Routes de Vins exploring the appellations and their prestigious wines. We will spend time in St. Emilion, an UNESCO world heritage site and a jewel village in the midst of the vineyards. You’ll have the chance to meander through the beautiful medieval cobble stone streets, soaking up the atmosphere and be surrounded by the wine experience.

 

Our  Bordeaux  wine tour  offers   the  once-in-a-lifetime opportunity  to  be  part   of   the  harvest at  some  of  the  world's  most famous Chateaux. 

You will become familiar  with the First Growths like Chateaux Margaux,  Latour or Mouton Rothschild, by tasting the most recent vintage in the barrel, and also sample fine older vintagesUnlike other wine producing regions of the world, Bordeaux is a one-of-a-kind place.
