Start the day driving through the French countryside dotted with chateaux and sleepy villages and reach the Médoc wine district, scenically located between the Atlantic coastline and the Gironde estuary. Visit a prestigious winery to learn about the distinctive qualities of this appellation, whose main grape variety is the Cabernet Sauvignon, then enjoy a guided tasting of their signature blends. You’ll then cross the river and continue the tour to Saint Emilion, another prestigious appellation in the Bordeaux area, where the dominant grape is Merlot. You’ll visit another prominent wine estate for a tour of the facilities and a guided tasting, then you’ll go on a guided stroll through the cobbled streets of the medieval village of Saint Emilion. At the end of the tour, you’ll have some free time to explore on your own before the journey back to Bordeaux.
