Set at the confluence of the Garonne River and the Gironde estuary, Bordeaux is one of the most prolific and famous wine growing regions in the world. Caressed by Atlantic breezes, the vineyards that cover the rolling hills of this iconic wine district have for centuries produced France's most remarkable wines. Appellations such as Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, Médoc and Margaux have made Bordeaux wines the top choice for oenophiliac's around the world.   As you cycle through vineyards and villages - and even a fortified citadel in Blaye - there are opportunities to visit many of the wine houses to sample their finest products. Each night you'll enjoy chef prepared regional specialties with fresh ingredients, whilst the bar offers a wide variety of excellent local wines to enjoy during dinner, or simply to savour at your leisure.
