About Bordeaux wine tours & wine tasting in France


Bordeaux is a wine region located in Southwestern France and is best known for its production of red wines, though it also produces some white wines. Bordeaux is arguably the most famous and visited wine region of France, containing renaissance-era castles and rolling countrysides sprinkled with lush vineyards.


This region encompasses over 280,000 acres of vineyards dedicated to wine production. With its temperate climate, Bordeaux is a significant contributor to world wine markets; in 2020, Bordeaux produced over 440 million liters of wine, the equivalent of 587 million bottles of wine.


Bordeaux is one of the most iconic wine regions of France and contains various subregions - 38 separate subregions, to be exact, with 57 appellations spread out across each subregion.


Bordeaux Wine Region highlights

  • Famous red wine region with a wide variety of wine tasting experiences to choose from.
  • Experiences for beginners, experts, and families.
  • Sometimes expensive, but quality and experience won’t disappoint.


Bordeaux Wine Tasting Itinerary


The city of Bordeaux is the central capital of the Bordeaux wine region. Therefore, this city is an excellent jumping-off point for exploring various parts of this beautiful region by car, train, or tour. Bordeaux is also a port town, so you can take cruises along the River Garonne with barges that transport you through beautiful landscapes while you sip wine or enjoy lunch at one of many bateaux-mouches (boat-eating) restaurants that line its bank.


There are various particular sub-regions to choose to explore within the Bordeaux region, each with subsequent routes that offer varying experiences.


The Castle route, for example, is a popular route for tourists and weaves through the Medoc subregion of Bordeaux. It includes various medieval and renaissance-era castles, most of which you can explore and experience on your own time or through a scheduled tour. You should read our Medoc wine route itinerary: top estate and village to visit.


There are a variety of routes you can take during your time exploring the Bordeaux wine region, most of which are centered around sub-regions of Bordeaux. Some of the most common include:


  • Entre-Deux-Mers. This popular subregion is southwest of the city of Bordeaux.
  • Cotes de Bourg and Cotes de Blaye. This subregion is located on the right bank of the Bordeaux region and directly northeast of the city of Bordeaux
  • Medoc. Medoc is located on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, northwest of the proper city of Bordeaux.
  • Pessac-Leognan and Graves. This subregion is located on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, south of Bordeaux city.
  • Sauternes and Barsac. This subregion is located on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, southwest of the city of Bordeaux.
  • Cotes de Bourg and Cotes de Blaye. This region is located on the Right Bank of Bordeaux, northeast of the city of Bordeaux.


Where to Stay in the Bordeaux, France Wine Region


There are a variety of hotels, hostels, and bed and breakfast options available for someone who would like to stay in the Bordeaux wine region - and everything in between.


First, for those looking for a central location in the Bordeaux region, the city of Bordeaux is an excellent choice because it's the mecca of this region. It has easy, convenient access to everything you'll want to do during your time in this part of France: tasting at some of the world's most prestigious vineyards, enjoying local cuisine and culture, exploring castles and museums—you name it!


If you're looking for a location closer to some great vineyards while staying within a reasonable distance from downtown Bordeaux (or even just slightly outside), you still have plenty of options. Another option would be finding lodging near St Émilion or Pauillac which both have their own charm but also offer quick access into the larger city center.


How to get to Bordeaux, France


You can access Bordeaux, France, in multiple ways.

  • By plane: Bordeaux is accessible by plane, with three airports located within an hour of the city. The most convenient option for travelers is Bordeaux–MĂ©rignac Airport (code: BOD). If you're coming from Paris or other cities in France, this airport often has flights available at a lower cost than others.
  • By car: If you rent a car in the nearby cities of Tours or Nantes, you can drive to Bordeaux, though it will take a few hours.
  • By train: You may also take the train from Tours or Nantes to Bordeaux station.


History of winemaking in Bordeaux, France


The history of winemaking in Bordeaux, France dates back to the first century AD and Roman times when viticulture was brought over from Spain by the Romans. The Romans brought viticulture into Bordeaux and planted their vines alongside those already planted there by the Gauls, who had been making wines since before they were conquered by Julius Caesar between 50 bce and 58 bce.

What to know before visiting Best Bordeaux wineries

What are the best villages to visit in the Bordeaux wine region of France?

On the castle route of Bordeaux, be sure to visit the village of Margaux in the Médoc, home to the famous Château Margaux. Obviously, the village of Saint-Emilion is an almost compulsory pilgrimage for any wine lover. It’s a medieval city steeped in history, with a breathtaking view of the Bordeaux vineyards.

Blaye and Verrou Vauban overlook the Gironde estuary with impressive military buildings. Sainte-Foy-La-Grande is also one of the region's favorite villages.

When is the best time to visit Bordeaux for wine tasting?

It is always a good time to visit Bordeaux. It averages 13 degrees celsius (a little over 55 degrees fahrenheit) all year round in Bordeaux. The most pleasant months to visit Bordeaux are June, July and September. In August, the heat can be overwhelming. In May, the spring climate is very pleasant.

Bordeaux’s "Vintage" season takes place from September to November each year. Wine tours and tastings are a great way to explore this beautiful part of France, whether you're a wine connoisseur or novice!


What types of wines do wineries in Bordeaux produce?

Over 90% of Bordeaux wines are red wines. Bordeaux wine is primarily made from the three grapes that are grown in the Bordeaux region: cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. The blend and usage of these grapes varies between each winery, which creates unique flavors in each type of wine. 

It’s also important to note that many of the wines produced in Bordeaux are luxury Bordeaux wines, meaning that some varieties be fairly pricy. However, Bordeaux wines are always worth the splurge!

What is the difference between basic Bordeaux appellations?

The different Bordeaux appellations contain different standards for minimum alcohol content, grape growing, aging, and more. For example, Bordeaux-Superieur AOP wines contain a minimum of 10.5% ABV and must age for a minimum of 12 months before release. The difference, although technically small, is a symbol of quality for many wines with the Bordeaux-Superieur AOP label. Many producers, who classify their wines as Bordeaux-Superieur, age their wines much longer than the minimum.

How to visit the Bordeaux vineyards?

In order to take full advantage of the Bordeaux vineyards and the castles of Bordeaux, we advise you to choose several oenological experiences. The Bordeaux wine estates are numerous and vast. The Bordeaux region has wine tourism activities all year round. The vineyards of Bordeaux can be visited on foot and even by cruise from the Garonne. All this, with a good tasting of local wine. Saint-Émilion, Sauternes , Haut-Médoc , Pomerol , Margaux, etc. What will be your choice ?
