Discover the Magic of Medoc Wine
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.
As we make our way back to Le Verdon, you will follow the famous Castle Road – Route des Chateaux – and cross some of the most famous Medoc appellations such as Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac or Saint Estephe. In the afternoon we will make a stop in one of these appellations for a tour & tasting in a carefully selected Classified Growth winery that creates wines in which Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant grape variety used in the blend.
