Tailor-made tours exploring the vineyards of Bordeaux

Published 10 August 2017

Has visiting La Cité du Vin made you want to head out and explore the vineyards of Bordeaux? Enlist the help of the Bordeaux Tourist Office team on the ground floor of La Cité du Vin!

With more than 35 trips through Bordeaux’s vineyards, there will definitely be something to suit you: from an eight-seater minibus to a tourist coach, as a half day or a whole day.

HALF-DAY TOURS

Stroll amongst the hills and enjoy the landscapes with their rows of vines. Stop for a few hours and explore the greatest wineries, offering a unique opportunity to learn more about how wine is made, from vine through to bottle.

A wide variety of half-day trips are available, the perfect format for a first foray into the region.
These trips offer an opportunity to explore the vineyards of Bordeaux through introductory tasting workshops and themed tours focusing on food and wine pairings, architecture and landscape design.

One unmissable tour is "Châteaux and Terroirs", exploring each of Bordeaux’s six wine routes in turn and allowing you to discover the region’s chateaus.

Also don’t miss the "Urban Wine Tour", an innovative concept which gives you an opportunity to try out different ways of tasting wine. From a wine estate to a wine bar, the tasting sessions are accompanied by local specialties for gourmet food and wine pairings.

WHOLE-DAY TOURS

For a fuller experience, take the time to explore Bordeaux’s utterly authentic winemaking heritage on one of many day-long tours.

If you are an accomplished hedonist, treat yourself to "A Gourmet Trail to Margaux" and explore four beautiful Margaux estates through both traditional and innovative food and wine pairings.

History and wine enthusiasts can enjoy a tour focusing on the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification, "Médoc 1855, outstanding great growth wines with lunch", or opt to explore two UNESCO World Heritage Sites with the "Bordeaux & Saint-Emilion: UNESCO Great Growths" tour.

Finally, why not head out and explore the very best Bordeaux wine tourism has to offer with the "Best Of Tour". Whether you choose the left bank itinerary (Médoc) or go for the right bank (Sauternes, Blaye, Saint-Emilion and more), you will visit three remarkable estates and dine at a winery.
