Discover the prized wines of Graves and Sauternes as you travel through the stunning countryside of Bordeaux. Visit 2 châteaux in Graves and taste their wines, and then head to Sauternes, where you’ll enjoy 2 wine tastings of this region’s unique wines.
What to Expect
Your full-day tour departs from Bordeaux and makes its first stop in the Graves region, where you’ll visit 2 châteaux and taste wines of the Graves appellation.

Graves was the first area in Bordeaux to export wine, and is one of those rare regions that produces reds, dry whites, and sweet wines equally well.

After the tastings you’ll have free time for lunch, before the tour continues to the Sauternes region.

Sauternes wines owe their unique taste to a fungus, the Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot, which particularly affects the Sémillon grape.

After a drive through the vineyards and a chance to admire the beautiful landscapes of the area, you’ll visit 2 wineries and enjoy tastings of 2 different wines of the Official Classification of 1855 of the Sauternes appellation.

Stop to see the ruins of medieval Château de Budos on the return trip to Bordeaux. The 14th-century fortress was built by Lord Budos, a nephew of Pope Clement V. The ruins are accessible through a fortified gateway cut into the impressive ramparts.
