Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux (2017) : River Royale
8 Days From Bordeaux To Bordeaux
Experience the enduring allure of one of the world's most celebrated wine destinations.
Bordeaux is a food and wine lover's paradise and every Francophile's dream. Encompassing three rivers-the Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde-this luxurious journey through southwestern France showcases the unique heritage of the region, from the storied Medoc wine route to the elegant city of Bordeaux. Explore a 12th-century Monolithic Church, pedal your way across verdant vineyards, and indulge in a spectrum of culinary experiences-local delicacies, exalted wines and unique regional vintages. Delve into Premier Grand Cru cellars in Saint-Emilion, meet the winemakers of the Sauternes region, and enjoy a wine-pairing luncheon at Chateau de Cazeneuve. There's no finer way to discover the douceur de vivre (sweet life) for which Bordeaux is known.
