Activity Overview
Visit 2 Châteaux with wine tastings
Discover the prestigious Châteaux of the Médoc region! You will drive along small roads by the Gironde river to reach the legendary "Route des Châteaux", through the prestigious Margaux, Pauillac, and Saint-Julien appellations. A 1855 Classified Great Growth estate and a charming family property will welcome you for a wine-tasting visit.  You will learn all the secrets of wine-making and of course taste their wine!  Your cabriolet vehicle is equipped with a multimedia tablet-guide that offers quality commentaries, great history and anecdotes all along the way. Relax, your tablet is also a GPS that will take you to your destination, so that you never get lost.

Great local restaurants are indicated by your tablet throughout your trip. Would you fancy having lunch at an open-air café by the river, a quaint village inn, or at a gastronomic restaurant? It’s up to you to decide! You are free to make detours or stop as and when you please.

Bring along some friends for an even more enjoyable experience. You can book several vehicles and thanks to the “flotilla” mode your vehicles will be connected and their position indicated on the tablet.
