Bordeaux VIP Wine Tour with Karl Curran
You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind experience for experts and amateurs alike. Tour the famous vineyards and wine estates of Bordeaux in October 2017. Replete with history and culture, this is a unique opportunity with a fascinating itinerary. Travelers will stay in a private chateau with five bedrooms. You’ll enjoy a private driver and Karl will serve as your guide as you explore fine wines, great food, and plenty of relaxation on the links or at the spa.
Accommodations: You’ll arrive in Bordeaux by plane or train and be driven to Chateau Le Pape in Pessac-Leognan.
Wine Making Tour: You’ll explore what is perhaps the most famous wine-making region of the world. The trip has plans to four estates across the region over several days. You’ll have time to learn about the vines and process and, most importantly, taste some of the best wines in the world.
Dining: While you’ll have time unwind with casual meals at the Chateau or local bistros, you will also experience some remarkable epicurean experiences. Some of the places you will dine include: Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafite, Hotel St. James in Bouliac, Chateau Haut-Bailly, and Chateau Siaurac.
Experiences: The schedule is full but you’ll have time for more than great wines and delicious food. There’s the three-hour cooking class in the Michelin-star kitchen of Hotel St. James (and, yes, you’ll dine on your creations). There’s a morning of golf on the Tom Doak-designed St. Emilion Golf Club or an excursion to the Caudalie Spa at Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafite. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Emillion on your last full day in Bordeaux.
