Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux with Uniworld
Discover the proud legacy of one of the world’s most acclaimed wine regions
From its noble châteaux to its breathtaking estuary, Bordeaux is an oenophile’s paradise and every traveller’s dream. Sail three stunning rivers—the Garonne, the Dordogne and the Gironde—on one amazing journey.
Savour the unique heritage of southwest France, from delightful Pauillac, the gateway to the storied Médoc wine route, to elegant Bordeaux, the “Pearl of the Aquitaine,” as the region is also known. Explore Saint-Émilion’s astonishing 12th-century Monolithic Church, and enjoy the beautiful Médoc vineyards on a bicycle.
Throughout your journey, you’ll be treated to a grand display of culinary magic. Taste regional delights and delve deeply into the region’s exalted wines. Taste lovely Médoc vintages; visit the cellars of Premier Grand Cru in Saint-Émilion, where you’ll savour the world’s most highly rated wines; and embark upon a study of Sauternes, meeting the winemakers and enjoying a wine-pairing lunch at Château de Cazeneuve. Discover the douceur de vivre (sweet life) for which this region is known.
