It is perhaps not surprising that Bordeaux is among France’s top destinations if you want to eat delicious food. Here you will find top- quality French gastronomy, at least on the lunches that we have on our wine tour to Bordeaux. They are often at one of the chateaux that we visit, yet they are on par with star restaurants. But that seems quite appropriate; here they also make some of the best wines in the world.
It is full speed in the cellars and in the vineyards when the autumn wine tour takes place. They harvest merlot a few weeks before the cabernet, so the harvest time can be quite extended.
