Bordeaux is very much about water (big surprise!). The wide and mighty Garonne River flows through the city of Bordeaux. The quayside has been totally renovated and Bordeaux now has a magnificent waterfront. You can walk along the river for several kilometres, for example, to the outskirts of the city where the new and spectacular wine museum Cité du Vin is located. Along the way you can stop in some nice cafés.

The Atlantic Ocean is not far away. The Arcachon Bay is well known for its oysters. Here in Bordeaux they are served with a small, spicy sausage and a glass of Entre-deux-Mers, preferably made with a lot of Sauvignon Blanc. To get to Saint-Emilion, you cross another mighty river, the Dordogne. Garonne and Dordogne merge just north of the city of Bordeaux and forms the Gironde estuary. Médoc is a peninsula with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Gironde on the other. The vines that overlook the Gironde are the happiest, as the saying goes in Médoc. Our spring wine tour to Bordeaux takes place in May. Book now!
