THE BEST OF TOUR
Best of Wine Tourism are everywhere in the Bordeaux vineyards. A special wine tour is dedicated to them and proposes to experience the “best of” wine tourism in Bordeaux! In 2017, twenty-two estates received Best Of Wine Tourism* awards thanks to their architecture, gardens, or the originality of the tours they offer. Two tours are offered this year on a rotating basis: left bank with the Médoc appellations or right bank with Sauternes, Bordeaux-entre-deux-mers, Fronsac, Lalande-de-pomerol, and Saint-emilion. The itinerary is different every week, but always includes three visits (with tour and tasting), a lunch at the second estate! This is an ideal opportunity to see beautiful family-owned estates, meet their enthusiastic owners, and sample different wines! Full-day guided coach tour from Bordeaux (French and English) organized in partnership with the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce.
