Best of Wine Tourism are everywhere in the Bordeaux vineyards. A special wine tour is dedicated to them and proposes to experience the “best of” wine tourism in Bordeaux!
What to Expect
In 2016, sixteen wine estates received Best Of Wine Tourism* awards thanks to their architecture, gardens, or the originality of the tours they offer.
Most of them* are located in appellations as diverse as Sauternes, Entre-Deux-Mers, Fronsac, Lalande-de-Pomerol, and Saint-Emilion; they are glad to welcome, on a rotating basis, 25 lucky visitors every Saturday!
The itinerary is different every week, but always includes three visits (with tour and tasting), a lunch at the second estate! This is an ideal opportunity to see beautiful family-owned estates, meet their enthusiastic owners, and sample dry white, rosé, red, and sweet white wines!
You will start your day by visiting one of the Best Of Wine estate, and taste the wines the proprty has to offer.
You will continue your day with a tour of a Chateau where you'll enjoy a wonderful lunch with the owner.
You will finish the day by another Best of Wine estate and tasting.
