Médoc – Route des Châteaux

Médoc, which means ‘in the middle of water’ in Gascon language, stretches north of Bordeaux between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary. 

In this land of highly distinguished winemaking estates, you’ll travel along the famous ‘Route des Châteaux’. This famous route unveils prestigious Grand Cru wineries such as the legendary Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Margaux, Château Latour, and Château Mouton Rothschild. Such big names are heralded amongst wine experts and enthusiasts around the world. 

Legendary wines from preimum appellations including Pauillac, Saint Estèphe, Margaux, and Saint Julien are yours to discover with many tours available, especially with our Medoc Wine Lovers tour. A local guide will take you inside the ‘château’ of several of these Grand Cru estates to family-run wineries, to introduce you to the unique characteristics of their wines.

Wine tourism is the central focus of this region, as it differs to winemaking styles from other Bordeaux appellations. Take a wine tour to uncover the secrets of blending. Like the distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wines the Médoc is famous for. These thick, deep aromas such as licorice and berries create well-structured, powerful wines that are worth tasting!

The Médoc’s scenery and châteaux are symbols of a past rich in history, wine, and gourmet cuisine made by remarkable people. But there is more to the Médoc than just wine. Located on the peninsula, there are forests, lakes, beaches and many beautiful villages to explore too! 

We suggest taking our Medoc Wine Lovers tour! Let us guide you from Margaux to Saint Julien by way of Listrac-Médoc. Revel in exploring the art of making powerfully flavored wines whilst driving through a soul soothing landscape.
