Trip details

Day 1

Relax with local private transfers from the airport to the Médoc region and start your experience with a complementary bottle of wine on arrival at the elegant private château – a sumptuous marriage of tradition and elegance set amongst the sprawling expanse of vineyards on which the grapes for the chateau’s wines are grown, and a magnificently refined, atmospheric and charming place (this is a chateau not a hotel with typical hotel amenities).

Day 2

The second day of your Bordeaux wine tasting trip is devoted to the majestic Médoc. Along with your private guide you’ll follow the famous Route des Châteaux stopping for tastings at prestigious classified growth châteaux along the way. Lunch with accompanying wine is served at a famed brasserie in the heart of the Pauillac vineyards. Your tour and further tastings continue after lunch.

Day 3

Before heading back to the airport, enjoy the serenity and the pool of your accommodation or perhaps have a picnic in the vineyards before you relax with local private transfers to the airport.

We came to Bordeaux for part of our honeymoon and took the First Growth Bordeaux tour. SmoothRed worked with us to curate a trip based on our desires. The 8 Chateaux we visited, the 3 delicious lunches, and the hotel were wonderful, but what set the trip apart was our…
