For all our shared day trips from Bordeaux, we ask our clients to be present 10 minutes before departure time. It is important to be on time as Bordeaux wine tours imply strict timing as all the wineries visited have been pre-booked especially for our clients. Due to this, all our tours must leave on time to meet this schedule. In Bordeaux, unlike many other wine destinations, it is not possible to just show up at a winery for a tour, especially for the wineries that are highly demanded.
Upon arrival at the meeting point, you will be welcomed by your English speaking tour guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing the name of the tour and with the Ophorus logo on it. Also, all our guides have a nominative badge so that it will be easy for you to recognize them.
With Ophorus, experience is the most important factor when it comes to our small group sightseeing tours of the Bordeaux wine region. On your Medoc region wine tasting tour, you’re sure to discover hidden gems and taste prestigious wines in an informal yet expertly guided way. This highly recommended wine tour from Bordeaux will introduce you to the Margaux & Haut Medoc appellations where some of the most famous chateaux are located.
After the first visit, we will take you to a nearby property for your second winery tour. Typically, our half day tours in the Medoc includes the visit of a prestigious Classified Growth Chateau combined with the visit of a more boutique winery, usually classified as Cru Bourgeois of Cru Artisan. If your first visit was in the Classified Growth Chateau, then this second visit will be in the more boutique winery. Also, the terroir will be different as we usually combine a visit in Margaux followed by another in the Haut Medoc appellation.
Both the Margaux and Haut Medoc produce wonderfully perfumed french wines. Margaux wines have a distinctive fragrant taste, attributed to the high gravel content of the soil in these vineyards. The soil’s excellent drainage means the plants need to root down further to find moisture, making them particularly strong, and bringing up the flavors of the deeper earth.
With Ophorus, rest assured that your Medoc vineyard tour will be everything you imagined. All our drivers are fully accredited guides, meaning you’ll get double the expertise on this great Medoc tour. Every one of our expert guides holds at least the WSET level 2 certification in wines and spirits, and they take great pride in their region and craft.
