Bordeaux is a mythical destination for wine lovers and the romantic name alone evokes images of fairy tale châteaux and manicured vineyards. The region of Bordeaux offers a diverse range of landscapes from the medieval hamlets and bucolic scenery of the right bank; to the flat, ex-swamplands of the Médoc punctuated with stately manors and wine estates; to the beaches and sand dunes of the Arcachon Peninsula. There are literally thousands upon thousands of wineries, many of which are household names to wine collectors. And the city of Bordeaux, whose historic mansions and graceful buildings have seen a major facelift and cleanup in the last decade, is something of a mini Paris and utterly delightful.

This luxurious private tour of Bordeaux town and region has been designed for wine lovers who also love fine living. Visit beautiful wine estates with charming, friendly hosts and learn all about the complex and fascinating history of Bordeaux and its wines. Intersperse the wine sipping with promenades in the vineyards, tours of Bordeaux’s golden triangle and St Emilion with local art historians.

The Bordeaux chateaux are not open to visitors, but welcome those who are friends of French Liquid Gold. Our CEO Julian have long-established connections with these châteaux and are thus able to provide unparalleled access to the greatest names in the world of wine. Each tour offers an opportunity to not only visit the estates but to also meet key people, taste wines that are rarely shown, and enjoy an interesting and unique visit.

From Bordeaux takes you to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed wine region of St-Emilion for a full day of wine tasting. Visit two château wine estates to tour the cellars, learn about the winemaking process, and taste the wines that give St-Emilion its prestigious reputation.

Each day includes a visit and tasting at a world-class Bordeaux château. Each visit is with a top expert who will bring you closer to the viticulture, winemaking, and characteristics of the major Bordeaux appellations. Lunches are a lingering affair with the châteaux owners, paired with their superb wines.
