FAQ Which Wineries will we visit?

We work with a very large number of wineries. On this specific tour, we will take you only to wineries that have obtained 90+ points in a number of tastings conducted by sommeliers or professionals that are linked to the wine trade.

Is this Wine Tour adapted to beginers?

All our wine tours are for both novice or wine aficionados. Our Expert Guides will be pleased to introduce you to Bordeaux wines & appellations if you are not familiar with them. All our vehicles are equipped with a P/A system that allows for questions and answers during driving time. If you are a Bordeaux Wine Fan and already know about the wines of Bordeaux, then this will be the perfect time to deepen your knowledge. History of the wine region, vinification techniques, terroirs, grape varieties, just ask and your passionate guide will be happy to share his knowledge.

Are the Visits & Wine Tastings different than in the U.S.A or Australia?

Yes, the wine tastings in Bordeaux are quite unique and very different than in other regions of France or countries around the world. Typically, you will be welcomed in the winery either by a guide, by someone who works in the winery or a member of the family in the smaller, family owned boutique wineries. The visits usually begin with a presentation of the estate and some history. Then the visit will move on to see the technical installations, the vats, the cellars. Finally, you will participate in a commented wine tasting session of the Chateau Wines. Don't expect the same pours as in the U.S or Australia, here it is all about tasting the wine so the quantities are much smaller than what you may be used to. Moreover, the wineries usually produce only two to three wines and that will determine how many glasses you will be served.

Who will be conducting this Wine Tour?

All our private wine tours from Bordeaux are conducted by Expert local guides that are specialists of Bordeaux wines. Most of them hold the WSET level 2 in wines or other similar French Wine diplomas. Some are National Certified Guides while others are professional sommeliers. Your guide will also be your driver for the day. He will be with you during the Chateau visits so don't hesitate to ask questions to make this day such a special one.

Can we choose the wineries we want to visit?

Yes, absolutely! If you have wineries that you would like to visit all you need to do is to send us the list of wineries and our partnership team will do their best to obtain an appointment just for you. All visits to wineries in Bordeaux are to be made by appointment only that is why we ask that you book your tour first before we start making the necessary reservations. Also, please note that not all wineries are opened for visits and this includes wineries such as Petrus, Le Pin, Cheval Blanc, L'Evangile, Ausone, Angelus.

Which Wine Regions are we gowing to visit?

The right bank wine region of Bordeaux includes several appellations. We will take you to the ones that we consider to be the most interesting on this type of tour. Typically the wine regions visited include Saint Emilion & Pomerol but we also stop in Fronsac or Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux on some occasions.
