Visit the world-famous vineyards, taste the wine and learn their secrets!
The Bordeaux Wine Tasting Tour takes you from the Médoc to St Emilion.
The Médoc region is North of the city of Bordeaux. The Bordeaux wine tour takes you to some of the most famous vineyards in the world: For example, Saint Estephe, Pauillac, Margaux, and Saint Julian, among others.
East of Bordeaux is where you will find some of the oldest vines in France. That is to say in the area surrounding the lovely medieval fortified village of Saint Emilion. Here, in addition, you may choose to visit the famous monolithic church – it was carved into the rock by the monk Émilion – for whom the town is named.
France’s wine culture embraces France’s food culture in a daily celebration of gastronomy!
Throughout the country there are hundreds of cheeses to choose from, and in addition, the desserts are divine! Each region boasts its own unique recipes. The entire Southwest of France for example, celebrates duck Confit, Foie Gras, and Jambon de Bayonne. Arcachon is famous for its fresh Oysters; and the Basque country is known for its delicious sheep’s milk cheese.
As a result, even for the connoisseur – there are lovely vineyards to visit throughout most of France. You might prefer the Burgundy wines, or the Champagne region. Or maybe you’d rather go and sample some of the famous Rhone Valley wines. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is certainly phenomenal, blended with up to 13 Grape varieties. This is where the AOC label originated.
In addition, the Sancerre, Touraine, Chablis, Provence, Languedoc, and Jurançon wine regions are all unique and remarkable. If you enjoy French cuisine, the best way to enjoy each region’s finest dishes is matched with the region’s local wine! France’s chefs are certainly striving to be the inspiration and to be on the cutting edge of innovative and classic cuisine all over the world!
