Bordeaux - Medoc Day Tour

1 day

The Médoc is made up of vineyards and châteaux which sit on the Left Bank of the Gironde. The Médoc AOC is an appellation which has earned its seat in the pantheon of fine wines – those that come from this region tend to be among the best in the world

Trip Highlights

  • Enjoy a comprehensive, in-depth full day’s tour of the Médoc, and enjoy the scenic surroundings, the glorious châteaux and the legendary wines which have made the area famous.

  • Head along the Route des Châteaux through some of the world’s most famous appellations, such as Margaux, St. Julien and Pauillac, to visit three of the region’s most renowned estates.

  • More on those wines: Cabernet is king here, and anyone with even the faintest appreciation of that classic red wine will fall in love with what’s on offer here.
