The Bordelais Vintner

Located just a half day drive from Paris and situated near the rugged Atlantic coast, the Bordeaux wine region is one of the world's most renowned sources of noble and highly coveted fine French wines. During the harvest period, enjoy the luxury of a contemporary but intimate hotel located minutes from Bordeaux city. Take on the role of apprentice winemaker as you join in on the harvesting process which typically ends with a friendly barbecue lunch.

A wine tasting and wine masterclass is organized just for you in the hotel to discover the Bordelais richness. You are now ready for private visits of two to three prestigious Bordeaux castles (Margaux, Palmer, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild …) amidst the most prestigious vineyards of the world: Saint Emilion and Medoc. At the end of the second day, relax with a private gourmet wine & food pairing dinner.
