Bordeaux

Bordeaux is big; one weekend is just not going to be enough to cover everything there is to see and do. Here are two different Bordeaux wine weekend getaway ideas. You could even string them together if you can stay a while longer!

The Graves is known as the ‘cradle’ of fine Bordeaux. It is an historic region, with vineyards and chateaux dating back to the middle Ages. In the 17th century they began making ‘The New French Claret’ here, which would come to define the style of red Bordeaux. Known for the quality of both its red and white wines, Graves is the only Bordeaux region that has a classification for its dry white as well as its red wines. Since 1987, the Graves has been divided into two appellations: Graves to the south and Pessac-Léognan to the north.

If you are looking for somewhere different to share a glass of wine with friends, here are a few fun ideas in Bordeaux

The medieval village of Saint-Emilion, under an hour from Bordeaux, sits on a limestone landscape so gorgeously well-preserved it holds UNESCO World Heritage status. And the reds are sure pretty, too.

Château de Reignac is a familiar name in the 'Best Of' family. Ideally situated in the Entre deux Mers, halfway between Bordeaux and Saint Emilion, the property is firmly on the wine tourism map.

Constant innovation means they previously won the 'Best Of Wine Tourism' award for Innovation in 2016 and now they have done it again with another Gold award in 2018 and a World 'Best Of' award for their innovative experience.
