We will get intimate insights into the world of Bordeaux and many top Bordeaux producers.

We will explore Bassin d’Arcachon off the Atlantic Ocean coast, visit an oyster farmer to learn what it entails to grow delicious oysters, and have an oyster tasting.

We will visit a top-notch, family-run cooperage to witness the fascinating art of making a barrique barrel from A to Z, so important to the quality of the wine.

We will visit a wine merchant to learn how the market for Bordeaux wines – La Place de Bordeaux- functions.

We will experience French hospitality and culinary art at the highest level. Every day we will have an exquisite, gourmet wine pairing luncheon or dinner in an intimate setting at different Chateaux which we share with the proprietors and/or winemakers.
