MEDOC TOUR – CELLARS AND VINEYARDS
Medoc produces some of the most renowned red in Bordeaux and offer some of the best wine tasting tour opportunities in France. On this custom wine tour, you will get to sample wines in some of the region’s classic vineyards and castles.
You start your Medoc tour by choosing from a selection of famous chateaus to visit for your wine tasting tour. The choices here are many, but your guide can pick a place for you with your input. For example, Chateau Agassac, a castle straight out of a fairytale, offers a range of imaginative tours, from a wine and chocolate pairing to an outdoor tour designed to teach visitors about wine making and the property’s history in a fun and interactive way. There is also the lovely Pontet Canet with its 18th century vat room and newly appointed horses to help cultivate the vines.
Your Medoc tour also takes you Pauillac, another famous wine locale boasting 18 different grand cru classifications, in time for lunch. Here you will visit another famous castle and vineyard; test your wine palate and see if you can taste the difference from the morning’s tasting.
Your Medoc tour concludes with a tasting session at La Winery to discover your “Wine sign.” La Winery doesn’t make wines on the premises; rather, it offers some 2,000 different products from all over France so you don’t have to travel to taste them. You can then enter your favorites into a computer to find out your wine sign –Trendy, Eternal, Sensual, Aesthetic, Gourmand or Forceful. This is a fun way to conclude a delicious day of wine-tasting in the Bordeaux region.
