The “Bordeaux River Cruise” company, which specialises in wine tourism along the river, organises wine cruises with wine tastings of Bordeaux appellations: the right bank of the Gironde estuary with its white, red and rosé wines from Blaye and Bourg-sur-Gironde, the left bank of the Médoc with its famous Grands Crus Classés 1855, or even upstream on the Garonne with the Graves wines and the sweet wines of Sauternes.
Among the different cruises on offer, the Blaye-Bourg Unesco wine cruise offers a guided tour of the vineyards and the heritage of the right bank of the Gironde. On the way out, on departure from Bordeaux, after a tasting matching dishes and wines, followed by a tour of the Vauban fortifications in Blaye, the boat follows the cliffs and makes a stop in Bourg, a village which overlooks the Dordogne. The return trip is by coach with a stop at the wine cellars of a wine estate.
Rates : €98 per person for the day including tours, tastings and meals on board.
