- An exquisite wine-tasting session in France’s most prolific producing region, Bordeaux
- Great opportunity for travels to sample the left bank over a short period
An idyllic drive along the Garonne through delightful vineyard landscape brings you to the majestic Chateau, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the premises, the winemaking facilities and gardens. Learn the Chateau’s history, and how its wines are made, then taste a selection. You’re sure to pick up plenty of useful knowledge whether you’re new to the world of wine-tasting or an old hand.
If you’d like to impress the staff at the Chateau you may find the following useful - Bordeaux is the largest wine region in France, with large chateaux and small, family-run estates between them producing some 700 million bottles every year, the vast majority of them reds. Graves, named for its gravelly soil that on some top estates contains white quartz that dates back to glaciers from the Ice Age, is the only subregion of Bordeaux that is known for its reds, dry whites and sweet wines. A typical Graves wine will come from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, quite possibly blended with Merlot.
