During the Bordeaux Wine Tour, guests must explore the streets, alleyways, pedestrianized town center and squares of this magnificent wine capital! Most importantly, let the unique taste, characters and styles of Bordeaux wine guide you.
What does Bordeaux wine taste like?
With almost 10,000 different wines and around 7,500 different producers in Bordeaux, wine from this storied region of more than 120,000 hectares and 60 different appellations really has no simple explanation as to how they taste but their are certain recurring properties.
For an extensive overlook, read-up on the characteristics and styles of Bordeaux wines here.
As you roam and explore the streets and chateaux of Bordeaux, the city’s storied history and architecture is found everywhere.
Bordeaux has been occupied for thousands of years. First by the Celts around 300 BC. Then by the Romans in 60 BC. The English then followed and after the Hundred Years War, Bordeaux fell under French rule. Things settled down in the 18th century and Bordeaux experienced a golden age of prosperity as a result of its wine trade. Many of the city’s buildings (around 5,000 of them) were built during this period and still stand today.
During the 1990s, the mayor of Bordeaux undertook extensive beautification projects to return Bordeaux to its former glory: the quays were entirely restructured, the town center was pedestrianized and the facades of buildings were cleaned. As a result of these efforts, Bordeaux was rewarded with classification on the UNESCO World Heritage List, thus ensuring its protection.
