Full description
This full day guided tour is the ultimate Bordeaux lifestyle experience. Impress your taste buds and get a real sense of life in France. You'll spend the day relaxing and exploring the remarkable richness and diversity of Bordeaux's wines. By the end of the day, you'll be a Bordeaux wine expert!  Start the tour with the Grand Cru Classé winery in the Graves region. Enjoy a variety of their red and dry white wines. Next, visit a family-owned wine estate in Entre-Deux-Mers, considered Bordeaux's 'Little Tuscany'. Here, indulge in a traditional French picnic with local produce, cheese, and cured meat. After lunch, visit the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. Your guide will show you the charming streets and tell you about the history of the region, which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After visiting the village, you'll enjoy one last wine tasting at an authentic family-owned wine estate in Saint-Emilion or Pomerol. However, all good things must come to an end and you'll soon be comfortably returned to central Bordeaux.

Really had a great time - Yann was an amazing host who knows everything about wine, but is also incredibly down to earth. And so I was able to have a great time both learning about wine but also within my group; noting that I joined as a solo traveller. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about wine and the region in the best way.

We enjoyed an amazing day visiting 3 very different kinds of wineries and the town of St Emil. Our guide Clement was very professional and was able to answer to all of our questions about wine, wine making, Bordeaux etc. We can highly recommend this tour to anyone despite whether you know a lot about wines already or whether you're a beginner. Also the hosts at the wineries were super friendly and the introductions were interesting and had a different angle to the wine making and tasting scheme. Thank you for an amazing day! Best wishes Maija and Jaakko
