You can also discover the Bordeaux vineyards via a detour on a 3 hour wine tourism cruise. You embark at Arachon, or from the jetty of several villages from the Lège-Cap-Ferret peninsula, those of Cap-Ferret, Piquey or Canon.
The cruise lets you get close to the cabins on stilts on the Île aux Oiseaux and the Dune of Pilat, on board a rapid wooden-clad cutter.
During the cruise ensured by the Jouvence cruise company, Aurélie Lombange, creator of En Vin, offers a tasting session with 4 wines, different on each cruise, accompanied by oysters, delivered directly by the oyster farmer during the cruise and tapas.
Aurélie knows the wines well and is able to talk about them very plainly. She will provide you with all the useful explanations on the wines tasted and will give you anecdotes on the owners of the châteaux chosen.
The boat can accommodate up to 10 people. Groups are very welcome. Cruises are organised on request and must be booked.
€700 for a 3 hour cruise, including wine tasting (the food items are extra).
