This tour is the best way to travel from San Sebastian to Bordeaux. Forget about using the train or bus and travel in style while you enjoy wine and gastronomy.
The tour starts with pickup at your hotel in San Sebastian. The motorway that connects both cities travels through the Landes of Gascony, which includes France´s largest forest, longest beach, and some of the country´s most acclaimed summer holiday destinations.
There will be no time to visit the city of Bordeaux.
You will be seduced by the charm and beauty of Saint Emilion and its silky Merlot wines. Saint Emilion is a UNESCO World Heritage site where wineries and vineyards shape the landscape. If something explains the high quality of the wines in Saint Emilion, it is its clay-limestone plateau.
We have selected a fantastic winery for our first stop. We will start by understanding the importance of soil in Saint Emilion and its plateau. The visit will continue with winemaking and aging and will end with a tasting of two wines.
You will then get the opportunity to enjoy a guided walk in Saint Emilion where lunch is waiting for you at the gastronomic restaurant we have selected. Saint Emilion is an amazing city and a must-see in Bordeaux and France. Its square, small streets, churches and the landscape of vineyards and old winery architecture make it a very special place completely devoted to wine culture.
The tour will continue south of Bordeaux to Pessac to enjoy a visit to one of Bordeaux’s best chateaux where you will have the opportunity to enjoy two of the wines at the estate. After this visit, you will surely be in love with this part of France.
