Spend a relaxed half-day on an afternoon tour from Bordeaux to sample the famous wines of either the St-Emilion or Medoc wine regions. Visit two historic châteaux to taste wines along the way.

Medoc wine tour:

Enjoy the scenic drive along the Castle Road of the Medoc region, passing well-known châteaux like Mouton-Rothschild, Latour or Margaux. Pause at a few photo-worthy places – in between learning about the history of the Bordeaux wine region from your expert guide – on your way to the first stop.

Arrive at the first château for a vineyard visit and wine tasting. You may stop at any one of several classified growth châteaux, including Paloumey, Siran, Cantenac-Brown or Lagrange. Tour the wine cellars, hear about the wine-making process and sample more wine, along with an array of French cheeses, bread and sausage.

At the second stop, visit the wine cellars and tour the château of this family-run estate, after which you'll get some additional wine-tasting expertise with a wine workshop.

St-Emilion wine tour:

Admire the beauty along the drive from Bordeaux into the St-Emilion countryside on the way to one of the following classified growth châteaux: Ferrand, Grand Mayne, Soutard or Pressac.

Sip a glass of the château's wine as you nibble on an assortment of local cheeses, fresh bread and sausage and learn about the wine-making process from your guide.

From there, head for a tour of the village of St-Emilion itself, a UNESCO-listed town that is partly carved from the surrounding rock. There are almost 800 châteaux in and around St-Emilion, one of which is your next stop.

Arrive at a family-run estate and take a guided stroll through the vineyards before adding to your growing knowledge of French wines with a wine workshop.

Perfect day at Medoc
, Dec 2021
Quentin gave us a lot of interesting information about the grapes and wine production in Medoc region. The tour was fantastic and he also stopped at Margaux Château to make pictures (my fiancé was dreaming about that). It was a perfect day, very funny and pleasant. The tasting was also very good, with good wines, snacks and a lot of laughs. I highly recommend.
Lovely Bordeaux experience
, Nov 2021
The wineries were gorgeous and had lovely tastings, the tour also did a great job of making sure we were getting something different from each winery and not repeating the same content. Quentin was also great, overall a lovely time!
Excellent Guide and Very Informative and Fun Experience
, Oct 2021
We very much enjoyed our half day tour of Medoc. We loved our guide, Quentin! He was very engaging and taught us so much about the Bordeaux wine region. He was also from Margaux so he knew so much about the specific region we toured and all of the wineries. Next time we are in Bordeaux, we would love to take another tour with him!
Great information for our trip to Medoc. A very pleasant journey excellent guide
, Oct 2021

Beautiful scenery and good wine
, Oct 2021
Loved the history and st emilion is absolutely stunning. There was not enough wine served though however for the price in my opinion compared to other tastings i’ve done. But the host was great and the group was fun. Would still recommend
Well done and informative
, Sep 2021
Our tour was during harvest so we saw pickers, women sorting grapes for the selection process, and juice flowing into the tanks. We were with a small friendly group, two other couples, with us. Quentin was knowledgeable and personable. host at the first chateau was delightful. Host at the second stop, which included two wineries with the same ownership, was a bit pompous. Overall, a very nice excursion.
Amazing trip to Medoc!

Average Tour
, Sep 2021
The guide ( Jerome) was excellent as a knowledgeable person however we were kind of lost waiting at the depart point on the Quinconces square. The guide should had carry a flag or sign to show that the tour was starting with him there. The explanation given by the first Chateau manager ( Chateau Jean Faure) was excellent. The explanation of the manager of the second chateau (La Crozille) was poor and lack professional position. At this second chateau we tasted three different wines but he did not change the glasses. I particularly found the tour expensive.
