French Wine Explorers has created a new Bordeaux wine tour that blends VIP tastings at Grand Cru chateaux with a taste of Dordogne’s prehistoric art and history, which dates back to 15,000 B.C.
The 6-day Treasures of Bordeaux and Dordogne tour provides guests an unparalleled French wine, culture and history experience. The first part of the tour immerses travelers in Bordeaux: from the vineyards of Graves-where the Romans planted some of Bordeaux’s first vineyards-to VIP tours and tastings at Grand Cru chateaux and estates in St. Emilion, the Medoc, and Sauternes. After three spectacular days of Bordeaux wine tours, guests adjourn to historic Dordogne, where they will enjoy picturesque Sarlat and its famed outdoor market. Finally, the tour concludes with a day of art and history, visiting prehistoric caves and their paintings and etchings, including the Lascaux II cave’s largest prehistoric painting in the world.
“We designed this very special Bordeaux wine tour to provide guests with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the region’s incredible wines, picturesque villages, culinary delights and rich history,” says Pascale Bernasse, President of French Wine Explorers.
Like all French Wine Explorers tours; luxury accommodations, fine cuisine, expert guides, and VIP access to vineyards punctuate the Treasures of Bordeaux and Dordogne tour.
