Bordeaux – The Wine Capital

Bordeaux like Paris, is a lovely city that merits a couple of days to really appreciate all that it has to offer.  We offer tailored bespoke wine and gastronomy tours along the Bordeaux wine trails of Médoc, Grave, Sauternes and Libournais with Saint Emilion, Pomerol and Lalande de Pomerol.

For longer trips in this region, we recommend staying additional nights at the 5* hotels ‘Les Sources de Caudalie” in the vineyards very close to Bordeaux or the “Regent Grand Hotel” inside of Bordeaux itself. You can choose from a multitude of activities that we can organise for you :
