The name Bordeaux has always evoked impressions of quiet sensual
pleasure, where the civilised and the natural coexist in easy harmony,
and wine-lovers are free to engage in their favourite pastime – savouring
the world’s finest wines.
In fact, the reality of Bordeaux is not that different from the romantic
impression most people have of it. Extraordinary landscapes, delicious fare
prepared with French finesse, wine-making that has been refined to an art,
and a wealth of historical riches, from elegant châteaux to churches that have
been around for longer than most of the new world.
Celebrate the history of wine during a special Scenic Sundowners event at
the spectacular Châtau de la Rivière and cycle through the rolling vineyards
of the Sauternes region to try the Grand Cru Class wine of Château de Myrat.
Explore the Cognac region to sample its famous brandy, or try fresh oysters
from the waters of Arcachon Bay. You’ll find that beautiful Bordeaux is
everything you imagined it to be, and more.
