In 2017, twenty-two wine estates received Best Of Wine Tourism* awards thanks to their architecture, gardens, or the originality of the tours they offer.
Two tours are offered this year on a rotating basis: left bank with the Médoc appellations or right bank with Sauternes, Bordeaux-Entre-Deux-Mers, Fronsac, Lalande-de-Pomerol, and Saint-Emilion. The itinerary is different every week, but always includes three visits (with tour and tasting), a lunch at the second estate! This is an ideal opportunity to see beautiful family-owned estates, meet their enthusiastic owners, and sample different wines!
