Champagne is in the very north-east of France (we have it on our programme too). Bordeaux is almost diametrically opposed, both geographically and style-wise. Bordeaux is in the south-western part of France, quite close to the Spanish border. It is mainly-today almost exclusively-known for its red wines, as opposed to Champagne that is virtually white only.

Bordeaux is so famous that every wine lover must visit at least once. On our tour to this magnificent region, we go to the famous appellations Medoc, Saint Emilion and Graves. We stay in the beautiful city of Bordeaux. Maybe France’s most elegant.

You will experience tastings at the chateaux, walks in the vineyards, and you will learn about the work and the effort that goes into every bottle. Our lunches will be prestigious meals at the chateaux with matching wines.

We also offer this autumn tour in combination with the Champagne tour. It will be a magnificent 9-day tour of Champagne and Bordeaux, starting September 23 and ending October 1. Full details now available.
