Wine Tasting in Bordeaux, France

A popular region to visit in France is Bordeaux; with great golf courses like Medoc Golf Course, Chateau des Vigiers, Relais and Relais de Margaux you can see why it’s a firm favourite.  Personally, the main reason for me to visit the region should be for the wine!!!

There are excellent vineyards in the St. Emilion and the Médoc areas – 92 in total all offering wine tastings and tours.  The wine tastings can last from 2 hours onwards and can easily be fit in around your golf and sightseeing schedule.  Bordeaux city itself is gorgeous, with wide boulevards, stunning architecture and beautiful parks.
