Bordeaux Food and Wine Day Trip Itinerary
Upon arrival via TGV from Paris, you will proceed to the tour meeting point at the Tourist Office. A nominally-priced local tram goes directly there.
First stop is a traditional Bordeaux bakery, where you will taste fresh bread and learn a trade secret or two.
Next, visit a famous chocolatier, creator of surprising taste pairings like ginger and olive. Chocolate’s dark flavor notes are a natural for innovation.
Your morning finishes with a cheese workshop and tasting. Explore the differences between classic French cheeses like Comté, Roquefort, Brie and more.
There will be a buffet lunch with local wine at the tour company’s stylish apartment offices.
In the afternoon you will drive the Medoc “chateau” wine route and stop at a historic family estate for a Bordeaux wine tasting and class that discusses flavor notes and how to smell and taste them. Woody? Tannic? Color? You’ll be the judge.
The final visit is at a Classified Growth estate such as Chateau Gruaud-Larose or Chateau Lagrange. Visit the vineyards, the vat room and the cellars. Finish the visit by a tasting of the estate’s wines while enjoying an aperitif of cheese and bread, as your day began.
You’ll be back in Bordeaux for a little down time before the evening high speed train to back to Paris. Overnight option available.

Link Paris Reviews – What Others Say About Our Tours
|Why we love Bordeaux – It took me three trips to fall in love with Bordeaux. I was too busy the first two times to appreciate the region. On the third trip I was able to take a breath and thought “wow, this is a beautiful place”. With a direct train just two hours each way, a day trip to Bordeaux from Paris is not only doable, but highly recommended. – John|
