Experience Bordeaux and Southwestern France by Land and a 8-day River Cruise

No one disputes that Bordeaux is the barometer of the wine world. Just mentioning the word ‘bordeaux’ makes many winelovers salivate. And justifiably so: the world of wine for many revolves around bordeaux and they epitomize the very best of what can be achieved in viniculture. Wineries throughout the world emulate what the bordelais started over 100 years ago: classifying the
best areas and climates and setting high standards for the production of quality wines. California has even adopted the terminology ‘appellation’ to connect wine with terroir, that great word developed by the French.

Bordeaux is a city as well as a wine region composed of numerous sub regions such as Medoc, St. Emilion, Sauternes and Entre-Deux-Mers. By combining land and a river cruise, we’ll have the opportunity to visit some of the great chateaux and towns of these regions from a unique perspective.

We start in Bordeaux for 2 nights, tasting wines and eating some of the best food France has to offer. We then get depart for our 7-day cruise through Southwest France and the Gironde estuary, the Garonne River, the Dordogne River with plenty of great wineries along the way. In addition to our land portion, and to ensure the best wine visits for our participants, we coordinate and arrange our own excursions to top area wineries.

When our stay is finished, everyone will have acquired the essentials of Bordeaux, the world’s primary wine region. No matter what your level expertise, you will benefit from this intimate exposure to some of the great estates of the world. When we leave from the throne of wine regions, we’ll carry home cherished memories of glorious moments spent in this idyllic part of France.
