Dear wine friends,

It is just six weeks until the wine tour to the Bordeaux wine region starts. 

Hotel reservations for these tours need to be made well in advance - more than 6 months earlier. Since I never know how many singles and how many couples join the tours I always reserve enough rooms to accommodate every possibility. 

At this point I have one room left (single or double occupancy). I do have to cancel this room by August 17th to avoid penalty charges.

I would like to let my wine friends know about this fantastic tour. There might be someone out there who would like to jump on the unexpected opportunity to explore the Bordeaux wine region at the end of September. 

The tour starts in Bordeaux city. Our first day takes us to Château Haut-Bailly in the Graves region where we can look at the brand new chai finished during the Covid years, and to a merchant house where we learn about the system of the “place de Bordeaux”. After the first day, we move around to get the feel for the different subregions of Bordeaux. We stay two nights in breathtakingly beautiful Saint-Emilion, then visit a Château in the Entre-Deux-Mers region where the owner/winemaker - Marc Lurton - will giver us a thorough lecture on winemaking in Bordeaux; we head across the Garonne river to explore Sauterne, and go back to Bordeaux city for Friday and Saturday night. The Saturday we will spend in Puisseguin Saint-Émilion, one of the Saint-Émilion satellite regions, with a winemaker family and learn about biodynamic winemaking. Sunday we head out to the Bassin d’Arcachon where we learn about oyster breeding and harvesting, and of course we will have an oyster feast with some crisp Bordeaux white wines. After that we spend three nights in the Médoc area to explore Saint-Éstèphe, Pauillac, Saint-Julien, and Margaux. We will have three exceptional wine pairing lunches and dinners at famous Châteaux with the owners/winemakers/general managers, and will also visit a barrel production facility to learn how important it is to produce the right barrel with the right wood, and correct toasting to perfectly age the Bordeaux wine.

Don’t hesitate to call me at my US cell phone (I am currently home in McLean, VA) or send me an email with all questions who may have. If you are interested in the tour, I will send you the updated itinerary for the 2022 tour.
