Overview

Enjoy a full day of exploring the beautiful Médoc region on a wine tour from Bordeaux. The Médoc region is responsible for some of the best wines that are produced in Bordeaux, and it’s an excellent place to go wine tasting in France. Stop at three wineries housed in magnificent chateaux. The idyllic surroundings, renowned vineyards and historic castles make this a perfect day trip from Bordeaux.
  • Full-day small-group Médoc wine tour from Bordeaux
  • Visit three wineries
  • Transport by air-conditioned minivan
Meet your guide in the morning in Bordeaux for a relaxing day trip into the elegant Médoc region. During each wine estate visit, you’ll learn what goes into producing such world-class wines.

Head out along the castle road to your first stop, the classified growth chateau in either the appellation of Margaux or St Julien. Sample some of the wine produced there, and then continue to the town of Pauillac. Enjoy some free time in the town to explore at your leisure, do another wine tasting or get lunch (own expense).

Rejoin your guide to do the second wine tasting included with the tour in either the appellation of Pauillac or St Estephe. Learn what makes these wines different from the ones you tasted in the morning, and taste the differences firsthand.

The final stop of the day is at another classified growth chateau, where you’ll taste more impeccable Bordeaux wines from either the Classified Growth or Crus Bourgeois appellations.

Relax on the drive back to Bordeaux, where your tour concludes.

Matt was a wonderful guide! We learned so much of the history of the region as well as of the wines and wine making. We visited some beautiful Chateaux and tasted great wines. A long day but well spent.

Our guide Simon was excellent. He met our group of 8 people at the assigned location and drove us to 3 different chateaus. Everything was completely streamlined and interesting. Each chateau was a bit different and Simon was careful to assure that we didn't keep hearing the same thing at each stop. Our lunch stop was comfortable and even though it was on a Sunday and many restaurants weren't open, Simon was able to give personal recommendations for several great places to eat. We had a bit of extra time after lunch so we were able to make an interesting stop to see some beautiful views. We have had good luck with all of our Viator experiences. The full day Wine tour did not disappoint!

We were excited at the prospect of visiting several famous Chateaux, and as well as enjoying the ambience, trying their wonderful wines. Having our guide named Luigi, meant that Mario Brothers were on the road for the day. His insightful stories and explanations meant we had a full day of immersion in the Medoc

Denis picked us up at the Bordeaux Visitor Center..He showed us a map of the area we were going to experience and gave us a history of wine making in the Medoc Region, explaining how soil , precipitation , and other factors contribute to the flavor of the wine.

We enjoyed a lovely day touring 3 Chateaux and learning about modern wine making...stainless steel containers, control rooms, barrels used for only 3 years etc.

He pointed out other famous chateaux including Lafitte Rothschild, which thrilled my travel companion. ..and made an extra stop for a wonderful photo op.

Great full day small group tour to medoc wine region. We were lucky to be the only two signed up for the day, so our tour was truly a small group that was personalized just for us. A lot of nice places to visit, tour and taste wine. Great stop for our lunch guide gave us options and really appreciated his recommendation it was excellent.

It might have been because we just took a left bank tour the day before and it was just the two of us, but we had a new tour guide that was not really able to add a lot to the tour - but again, not sure if he could have. The visits were nice because it was fun ton contrast the left bank from the right bank and to see how big the Medoc vineyards were.

What great value for money!! Amy (?Amiele?) was an excellent driver, tour guide and wonderful company! Her suggestions were gold. We enjoyed the wineries she took us to and lunch was exactly right. I can not recommend this tour highly enough. It was so nice to have everything organised fir us!
