During this morning tour, you will explore the ancient quartier of Chatrons, formally known as the original heart of the Bordeaux wine industry. The small and winding streets are embedded with cozy antique shops, stylish eateries and cafes, as well as other specialty stores and boutiques.
This is a place full of history, giving you insight into how Bordeaux became the most sought after wine city throughout Europe and beyond!
This tour includes a visit to a local organic boulangerie, before enjoying more patisseries and coffee tasting at a quaint cafe hotspot.
The tour continues in a local cheese shop and the nearby food market. You will meet regional merchants, taking a step back in time to savor the provincial foods like cheese, cured meats and of course, drink some wine. This is truly an authentic taste of the French lifestyle!
The Chartrons Food Tour allows you to discover and learn about the French connection to the land and their appreciation of good food and wine. As you follow one of our local guides, you will get an intimate look at Bordeaux and the French art de vivre!
