Wine tourism in France Wine Tourism in Bordeaux

France is probably the country with the most renowned wines in the world; among the areas where wine culture is most prominent, Bordeaux holds a dominant place on its own merits.

In Viavinum we organize exclusive wine tours in the Bordeaux region, our experience in wine tourism makes it possible for you to enjoy the essence of this remarkable region.

The Bordeaux wine region is located in Aquitaine, in the southwest part of France.

The exceptional geological and climatic conditions of the region gives the wines an advantage; calcium-rich soils and the Gironde estuary and Garonne and Dordogne rivers irrigate the soil and provide enough water for the growth of its grapevines.

Generally, a variety of grapes are used for wine production: for reds, some of the best grapes are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot and for whites, the best are Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle.

With more than 270.000 acres of vineyards, Bordeaux is the second region of France with the greatest number of vines, and more than 9,000 wine cellars (Chateaux).

We can identify three different wine regions:

The right bank of the Dordogne river, outside the city of Libourne.

Between Deux Mers, the central region, which lies between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.

The left bank of the Garonne river is subdivided by the Graves region to the southeast of the city of Bordeaux and the Medoc region which is to the north of Bordeaux.

In Viavinum we organize VIP trips in which you can visit a large part of this territory with the best wine routes in the Bordeaux region.

Bordelais wine production amounts to more than 700 million bottles per year.

This magnitude gives the Bordeaux wines a wide range of varieties, from modest table wines to some of the most reputable and expensive wines in the international scene.
