Bordeaux is a beautiful and renowned vineyard!

The most famous areas are Saint Emilion and the Medoc. But the stunning Graves district is highly recommended to visit too (a tour here would include Pessac-Léognan and Sauternes).

For comfort, schedule no more than one sub-region per half-day.

Saint-Emilion

Saint-Emilion (“EAST”/pink on the map)

A scenic and slightly hilly area that produces wines with a majority of merlot in the blends. While the châteaux (wineries) are relatively small, many of the wines produced here are highly esteemed. The medieval village situated right in the heart of the vineyards is a core reason for choosing the Saint Emilion tour. It is definitely worth a stroll.

For those of you who are already fans of Pomerol wines, you will be glad to know that this appellation is located right beside Saint Emilion.

Medoc

Medoc (“NORTH-WEST”/purple on the map)

Home to the renowned 1855 great classified growth wines. The “Route of the Chateaux” takes you to one famous estate after the other. Prestige and history are key words here. The Medoc is divided into eight smaller wine districts (appellations), each producing different wines despite their geographic closeness. Margaux, Pauillac, Saint-Estephe, Saint-Julien to name a few…

Graves

Graves (“SOUTH-WEST”/orange on the map)

The region produces red and dry white wines; it stretches over 55 kms, from the city of Bordeaux all the way down to Sauternes.

Pessac-Léognan embraces some of the oldest and most charming chateaux in Bordeaux, and produces fantastic dry white wines (watch out, Burgundy! ) in addition to reds.

Sauternes is famous for its golden, refined, sweet, yet balanced, white wines with a loooong finish. The micro-climate allows the grapes to be affected by noble rot that gives the sweetness to the wines.
