I had a great time on this tour of the Margaux area north of the city of Bordeaux. Julie was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the wines of the area and its history. We visited two wineries, each was beautiful and provided different examples of small and large wineries. Most of all, I enjoyed the seductive wines of Margaux!

We had a wonderful, guided tour at Chateau Haut Breton. The guide Florentine was very competent, inspiring and willing to answer all our strange questions with an interested and open mind. Not to forget excellent languages skills. We enjoyed every minute.
