From north to south, from Champagne to Bordeaux | luxurious wine tour

Share/like this post:

Champagne is France’s most northerly wine region. It is not far from Belgium. Maybe that’s whey the Belgians drink so much of it. It is a cool climate wine region. That is perfect for making sparkling wine, the high acidity in the grapes brings elegance and freshness to champagne.

Harvest may be in full swing when we visit, so, if we’re lucky, we’ll get the chance to taste the grapes. And we will certainly get to taste the wines, both in the vast underground cellars and around luxurious dining tables.

Bordeaux, on the other hand, is far south in France, on the Atlantic side. The closeness to the sea gives it a mild climate. The red grapes need more sun and warmer temperatures, which they get here in Bordeaux.

We will spend time both in the vineyards and cellars, as well as in some very elegant tasting rooms and private dining rooms of the estates we visit. The two, Champagne and Bordeaux, make a perfect combination to show you some of the most outstanding wines and gastronomy that France can offer.

PS: We have written an internationally award-winning book about Champagne, and also one on Bordeaux. And ten other wine books. Can you think of any other wine tour operator with that in the baggage?
