What you'll do

Go off to explore the mythical « Route des Châteaux » and come to visit two Châteaux (a top winery Grand Cru Classé and a cru bourgeois) during a 5.30 hours guided tour with me, a fun & knowledgeable local guide speaking English.

Your tour includes 4 wines tasting minimum and a French aperitif (cheese, cured meat, crackers & chocolate).
I will meet you in « Place Stalingrad » between "LCL Bank" and "Wasabi Café" at 12.30 a.m

At each winery, you will have an introduction about the history of the estate, then you will visit the technical installations, ending with an explanation about the oak barrels and the aging process. The tour will end with a commented tasting of the Château wines.

I will drive through the vineyard of Médoc and you will have brief stop at Château Margaux, Château Palmer and Château Pichon-Baron if you want to take photo.

The two wineries visited are situated in the prestigious of Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac or Saint-Estèphe.

We will be back in Bordeaux at 6 p.m (+/- 15 minutes).

The winery visits are always in English.

Ps : an aperitif in included in the tour. If you do not have lunch before coming to the appointment, you can buy a sandwich in « Place Stalingrad » and eat it during the tour

If ever you find yourself in Bordeaux, do yourself a favour and book a Medoc wine tour with Sonia. She is very knowledgeable, she entertains questions and she’s very easy to talk to. The travel was smooth and comfortable,she took us to beautiful chateaus and gave us a local delicacy cannéle which i think was a nice thoughtful touch. It was more than I expected and was a great value for money. Highly recommended!

Sonia's Medoc tour was awesome! She is extremely knowledgeable and such a delight. As we made out way to the Medoc region, Sonia gave us a bunch of fun facts about wine making in Bordeaux. We learned so much! Would definitely recommend her tour to others looking to explore the Medoc area of Bordeaux!

Sonia was a brilliant guide with a lot of insights about the wine region of Medoc. She was open to sharing her knowledge on the drive which was a real selling point to the tour and there was no question she wasn’t open and knowledgeable about. Sonia added some thoughtful touches to the tour like bringing local cakes for the journey and went above and beyond to offer me recommendations on where to go in Bordeaux and Saint Emillion including restaurant and wine bar tips. Great tour, lovely host.

Love the tour that was hosted by Sonia. We were supposed to be the Medoc Wine tour but we ran into some issues in Paris and ended up missing this tour. She was able to accommodate one of us on her other tour at the St. Emilion vineyards. I really enjoyed her narratives on the wines and vineyards in Bordeaux. The vineyards that we went to were also exceptional. We also had a chance to visit the St. Emilion town. This town has a very picturesque view. I highly recommend this wine tour hosted by Sonia. It was very informative and fun.
