To come to Bordeaux is an experience nobody ever forgets. You can tour bordeaux
alone or in an organised tour, and both will surpass your expectations if
the tour of bordeaux is well palanned.
Bordeaux is in the south west of France, on the Atlantic coast. 'Terroir'
is what it is all about. This almost untranslateable term refers to the land,
the sun, the produce and the people and the comination that makes both Bordeaux
and the key crop, wine such a special thing.
in Saint Emilion, A vinyard tour at noon, shopping in the The historic St.
Michel district in the centre of Bordeaux and watching the sunset with a tasting
of Premier Grand Cru on the banks of the Dordogne. These are just four possibilities
on a Bordeaux Tour. The variety is endless so the choice of exactly what to
do is yours.
Of course you cannot drink and drive in France, so an ever more popular Bordeaux
wine tour is one where you cycle across the region. Bicycle routes are well
catered for and many cross the best vinyards.
When you arrive, expect to taste wines made from Merlot (50% of Bordeaux
wines) Cabernet-Sauvignon,Cabernet-Franc, Sémillon and Sauvignon grapes,
blended to produce really exceptional flavours.
If time is short, a weekend wine tour with a very knowledgeable bordeaux
wine guide is also a popular option for visitors.
