This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide in the morning in Bordeaux for a relaxing day trip into the elegant Médoc region. During each wine estate visit, learn what goes into producing such world-class wines.

Head out along the castle road to your first stop, the classified growth chateau in either the appellation of Margaux or St. Julien. Sample some of the wine produced there, and then continue to the town of Pauillac. Enjoy some free time in the town to explore at your leisure, do another wine tasting or get lunch (own expense).

Rejoin your guide to do the second wine tasting included with the tour in either the appellation of Pauillac or St. Estephe. Learn what makes these wines different from the ones you tasted in the morning, and taste the differences firsthand.

The final stop of the day is at another classified growth chateau, where you’ll taste more impeccable Bordeaux wines from either the Classified Growth or Crus Bourgeois appellations.

Relax on the drive back to Bordeaux, where your tour concludes.

I actually was switched to the St Emillion tour and it was great! I appreciate that the company made the adjustment ratcheting than canceling my reservation. Based on my experience, I would definitely return for the Medoc tour.

We visited three chateaux to have wine tasting. In between, we also had many picture opportunities of famous chateaux of grand cru classe 1855. I appreviated our very knowledgeable sommelier guide Luigi. Thank you for a very interesting and educational tour.

Medoc wine experience

Great host with very good knowledge. Comfortable coach and small group. Visited 3 wineries and had a 2 hour stop for lunch at our own expense. I think we could have visited more places than we did in the time as we did a tour of the second winery which repeated what we learnt at the first and we only tasted two wines at each place. 2 hours for lunch was not required.

Beautiful Chateaus
Richard_D

Luigi is an excellent tour guide. It was amazing seeing all the chateaus (including Lafitte Rothschild) and tasting the wines. The only negative was that we were in Cabernet Sauvignon country, but the wines we tasted were all mostly merlot.

Emelie in Bordeaux was a great tour guide

The tour guide was the best experience. Emilie in Bordeaux was outstanding! Maybe only one visit with explanation of the process had been enough. Three visits for tasting were fine though

Tour guide was good. Winery experiences were good. Lunch town was terrible—-would like this part to be omitted or changed, as town is dead
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Bonjour Jeanne_H, Thank you to let us know that you enjoyed the tour guide and the wineries experiences, this is the essential of our service offered! Indeed, the options for lunch are less numerous in the Medoc than in a big city, our guides always make suggestions to our clients, but you can definitely not expect crowded spots in the Medoc region! This is also the charm of the area. Hope you will have the oppportunity to discover another French beautiful destination. Best Carole from Ophorus team

Beautiful region, bad driver
Stephanie_E
, May 2022
There was a nice variety of chateaus at varying price points and I am glad we saw the region. However, our tour guide was a bad driver and did not slow down at all for speed bumps, which was very unpleasant in the back row of the van. She also was a bit political and shared anti-vaccine COVID conspiracy theories that made some members of the group uncomfortable. She was very friendly and sometimes funny though and spoke good English.

Great tour of Medoc with unique experiences and a knowledgeable guide!

We had a great experience with our guide Ilia today. He was so warm and welcoming and VERY knowledgeable about the region, the wines and the growing process. Ilia took us to great wineries that not only served great wine, but unique experiences. This tour is great for all levels of wine experience. An added bonus is that the group is small enough that it’s easy to make new friends. Would highly recommend!

Great day in the Medoc region. Tour did not feel rushed and there was plenty of time at each location. Each winery was unique in its own way. Our guide was very friendly.
