To customize your private tour choose among a selection of Family friendly Options
Option 1 - From age 6 to 11 years old : First steps at the chateau ! Discovery game in the vineyard and the Cellars, before tasting the little gourmet menu.
Option 2 - The ghost of Pierre Merman, first owner of this Château, is a real prankster : he stole the « recipe » of the wines ! With a map, children and adults share this fun experience that leads them all over the property. A captivating and unusual family adventure which will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories in a family run winery !
Option 3 - Equipped with an audio and video I-pad, you can explore the estate, its history and its wines in an original way by answering all the questions asked throughout a discovery tour. You will then participate in a wine tasting session.
Option 4 - Petit Marquis takes our guests' children into a world that matches their powers of imagination and their capacity for wonder. Many surprises and old-fashioned games await them as they discover the estate. A journey into a universe where everything is designed to spark children's curiosity and sharpen their senses.
Option 5 - Another great option is to visit a barrel making facility. Visit the production area where the coopers create the wine barrels, enjoy a tasting at the end of the visit ! This is a unique visit for both parents and children alike. Watch as the coopers toast the barrels, a breathtaking experience that will allow the wine to acquire some toasty flavors as it ages in the barrels. Visit is followed by a red wine tasting session for the parents.
All these options will be available during the booking process. If you are staying in Bordeaux for several days please note that we also organize a family friendly tour to St Emilion. Other great options for the family include kid friendly guided tours, food tours, walking tours in Bordeaux.
