Taste wine in Bordeaux

Touring the vineyards and sampling the local wines are one of the greatest pleasures when visiting Bordeaux. It is the second largest wine-growing region in the world and produces over 800 million bottles annually. It produces some of the best and most prestigious wines in the world, some of the most famous being:
  • Château Haut Brion
  • Château Lafite Rothschild
  • Château Latour
  • Château Margaux
  • Château Mouton Rothschild
  • Château Ausone
  • Château Cheval Blanc
  • Château Petrus
  • Tours are available through many operators. Alternately, call ahead for reservations. Note that Haut Brion and Mouton are closed for renovation in 2010, while Latour generally only accepts serious collectors and professionals. If you are an individual you can take daily wine tours departing from Bordeaux and that head towards all the major vineyards of the region: Saint Emilion, The Médoc, Graves and Sauternes... The excursions take place on board 8-seater fully equipped minivans and are taken care of by professional driver guides. The annual summer wine festivals are held in tandem with the "Bordeaux-fête-le-fleuve" celebrating the river, land, and international community. The most recent was held on 24-27 June 2010. There are many tour operators for this region of France. They can organise your complete tour (including travel to and from Bordeaux and France) or they can arrange visits to wineries and château for you.
