Summary

On the Médoc wine tasting tour you’ll discover the secrets of the region’s soil, which is especially suited to the production of high-quality grapes. On this wine trip, you’ll delight your taste buds with wines blended with Cabernet Sauvignon – the king of red grapes!

After a winery tour around a Grand Cru Classé wine château, you’ll take part in a fun do-it-yourself wine workshop, in which the winery owner will teach you how to make your own wine using grand cru blending techniques. After learning all about the specific features of the region’s grape varieties, you will have enough knowledge to play around with flavors and dare to make your own unique blend (unique in Bordeaux!). You’ll finish off in true French style by enjoying a gourmet aperitif with wines – the perfect ending to an entertaining afternoon.

Tour only available from April to October. During winter season we run this tour only! (private tours on request)
