Description

The Medoc area covers approximately 5,700 hectares of declared vineyards, annually producing on average 300,000 hectoliters of wine. Of the grape varieties permitted, 50% of the viticultural area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec. Also allowed within the AOC regulations are the varieties Cabernet Franc and Carménère. The region you will head to spans from the mouth of the river down south and includes the four famous communes of St-Estephe, Pauillac, St. Julien and Margaux.
Today, depart from your hotel in Bordeaux and head towards the famous Medoc wine region. During this half day tour why not experience a visit and wine tasting session in 2 Classified growth or Cru Bourgeois estates that have been carefully selected for their exceptional setting and quality of wine. During these visits you will learn all there is to know about the history of the estates, the wine making process as well as the techniques used during the wine making. The visits are followed by a wine tasting session.


Then, your driver guide will make you discover the Castle Road to admire some of the most famous chateaus such as Chateau Margaux, Chateau Palmer or Chateau Cantenac Brown. We at Ophorus will take care of your winery bookings but please note that you must be a wine professional to be able to visit and wine taste in some of the more prestigious estates such as Chateau Latour & Chateau Margaux.
