Médoc - Winemaker for a day

1/2 day - Guided tours

Description

What makes Bordeaux wines so special? It’s all in the blending.

The blend is the final stage in making wine. The winemaker tries to make the best possible wine by combining several grape varieties based on their “terroir” or the soil where they’re grown. It's this soil which is a major factor in giving wine its distinctive taste characteristics, and each winemaker creates his own style which he closely follows from one year to the next. Bordeaux Wine Trails invites you to blend your very own wine during this tour.

You’ll first visit a Grand Cru Classé wine château in the Médoc region and taste prestigious wines to fine-tune your palate. The next stop will take place at a small winery where you’ll be greeted by the owner himself who, following a short tour, will reveal his own secret recipe for making exceptional wines.
