You will start your journey travelling to the town of Saint Emilion to visit a Chateau winery.

We will visit a second winery in a Chateau in Pessac Leognan with a Qualified Denomination of Origin. The wines here are produced using different techniques, which the winemakers will be happy to explain, as they share with you the secrets of their top-quality wine. You will enjoy a final wine tasting before returning to your accommodation.
You will then explore Bordeaux’s city center and head towards the exclusive boutique hotel right in the heart of the city. You will enjoy a city tour with your guide through this classic yet modern city, also on the Unesco World Heritage list.
