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.
Today depart for a half day tour in the Margaux & Haut Medoc appellations, world famous for its lead 1er Grand Cru Classé: Chateau Margaux. During this half day tour you will discover 2 renowned Classified Growth Chateaus (Cru Classé & Cru Bourgeois) that create wines in which the Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant grape variety used in the blend.

Totally enjoyed the experience! – Found the tour guides to be knowledgeable and competent of the area and wineries. They were highly courteous and respectful.
Wonderful tours in Bordeaux – During our stay in Bordeaux, we went on two wine tours. We enjoyed them a lot! My favorite was the tour of Margaux. Delphine is a sweet girl, she is a great tour guide!
Excellent!! – Very nice trip. Our guide Karim was very cool and showed a great knowledge about wines. The wineries visited were very good too!
Great tour to Medoc! – Highly recommend this tour, will do it again next time someone visits. Our guide was enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable, and we learnt a lot at the château’s we visited.
