Bordeaux Food Tour and Wine Tasting: Discovering the French Terroir!

Summary

This food discovery and wine tour helps you explore the ancient market district of Saint Michel, and experience the authenticity of its history. Meander through its cobbled streets, its longstanding monuments and of course, the locals.

After the first delectable stop in a traditional French bakery, you’ll be taken to Bordeaux’s oldest and  largest indoor market known as Les Capucins. Meet and greet the vendors, learning their stories and tasting locally produced goods! Delve into the diversity of what Bordeaux terroir has to offer as you are accompanied by your personal English speaking guide, chatting with local producers who are the best ambassadors for the French way of life.

Next stop on the tour is going to a cosy local wine bar for a wine tasting! Learn to taste like a professional, as your guide interprets the complexities of Bordeaux wines whilst enjoying a delicious platter of cheeses and cured meat. We guarantee that by the end of the morning, Bordeaux and its wines will no longer hold any secrets for you!

Tour only available on Thursday morning only from April to October. (private tour on request) We can add traditional cooking tips along the way!
