Bordeaux is the most well-known and desired wine blend in the world. You may know that most Bordeaux wines are red and made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But did you know that the winery’s location within the region of Bordeaux determines the percentages of each varietal?
We are quite selective in the regions we choose to add to our food, wine and beer tour schedule. We like to focus on desirable culinary destinations where we can provide our travelers with remarkable experiences.
With that in mind, we are very excited to announce our newest food and wine tour to iconic Bordeaux, France. There are so many reasons to explore this incredible city and region including the history, cuisine, and of course, wine of Bordeaux.
Wine is almost always produced in beautiful, bucolic locations. So why settle for driving to a winery, doing a tasting, buying a few bottles, and moving on? We think you should pause, take in your surroundings, talk to the people responsible for the end product, learn the history of the place, and then head inside or out on a patio to taste the wine. We assure you that your tasting will have more meaning due to the context you’ve just been given.
We are all about maximizing your time in a new destination as you never know if you’ll have the chance to go back. Because of this, we like to provide recommendations of additional ideas of what to do in and around our tour locations. This time around, we’ve provided a list of what do to either before or after our Spain Food & Wine Tour.
Wine tourism in Spain is not easy. Unlike a lot of other wine regions, most wineries in Spanish Wine Country do not post visiting hours and open their doors to just anyone driving down the road seeking to visit.
Instead, visitors to Spanish wine regions generally have to make advance reservations, which is not easy to do for independent travelers who don’t necessarily know which wineries they wish to visit or even how to speak the local language.
