You will go first on the bay of Arcachon, a small seaside resort full of charm known for its thermal waters and its delicious iodized oysters. After a stroll downtown, you will visit an oyster farm located on the Cap Ferret peninsula facing Arcachon. On site, you will meet a couple of oyster farmers and enjoy an oyster tasting accompanied by good white wine. After your morning on the basin, you will go aboard your vehicle heading north to discover the Bordeaux wine region. Your first stop will be in the famous village of Margaux (thanks to its appellation Grand Cru) where you will have a lunch break in a restaurant offering daily a different menu composed of fresh local products. In the afternoon, you will visit one of the castles dating from 1855 such as Château Rauzan Segla, Château d'Issan, Château Lascombes, Château Palmer... You will discover the secrets of making wine, followed by a wine tasting at the property. You will then continue with a walk in the region, taking advantage of the superb panorama on the road of the wine estates lined with vineyards and historical châteaux.

Bordeaux

Anglais/English, Français/French

I was born in Bordeaux and raised in a family of winegrowers. Studying and working with wine for the next 20 years – in our vineyards, at different châteaux and in selling wine - was therefore a natural choice. I decided that I wanted a change and had the idea of giving guided wine tours dedicated to Bordeaux, wine, tastings, oysters and French cuisine from the point of view of a wine professional. I like meeting people, discovering new cultures and developing personalized relationships. Wine is my big passion and at home I have an impressive wine collection. And, as wine and good food go hand in hand, I also like eating. Apart from that, I enjoy playing tennis, travelling and I’m currently learning Portuguese.
