9am – Meet your English speaking driver in the lobby of your hotel and departure for Chateau Giscours (47mn drive)

11am – Enjoy a visit & tasting at Chateau Giscours -or similar

Secrets such as those that a glass of Château Giscours will whisper to the taste buds of wine lovers.

Aged in high quality French oak barrels, the wine acquires its complexity as the month progresses, subtly combining aromas of dark fruits and spices to the tannins of the wood, to reach a sublime balance. The complex blending procedure, an important stage in the production of this great wine, requires the most advanced skills of the cellar master and their team.

Ultimately, all the traditional qualities of a great Margaux are blended: the finesse of the tannins, purity, a gentle, refined elegance, and great finish on the palate.

To those who can wait, Giscours, described as an “intellectual” wine by some connoisseurs, will divulge all of its complexity and reveal its secrets…

After your visit drive to Bages (39mn drive ) , our driver will take you depending on your request on site to a restaurant for a lunch

Recommend lunch at Café Lavinal in Bages

In the centre of the village of Bages, the Café Lavinal opened in 2006 and owes its name to Berthe Lavinal, grandmother of Jean-Michel Cazes.

The ambience here is warm and friendly, with amazing objects brought back by Jean-Michel Cazes from his travels and other souvenirs of his grandchildren’s summers in Bages. Adjacent to Château Lynch-Bages, it is a popular place for winemakers and locals wanting to catch up over a hearty meal or a glass of wine in authentic surroundings.

After lunch –– Enjoy a visit and tasting at 2pm at Pichon Barron – or similar

Discover the mysteries of wine making at Château PICHON Longueville Barron.

Château Pichon Longueville Baron (commonly referred to as Pichon Baron) is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. Château Pichon Longueville Baron is also the name of the red wine produced by this property. The wine produced here was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

3.30pm – Enjoy a visit & tasting at Chateau Lynch-Bages –or similar

Daring, innovative and with a reputation for often being the last to harvest, Jean-Charles Cazes defined the style of Lynch-Bages in the 1930's. The wine's distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac's greatest. It combines structure, finesse and elegance, offering generous aromas in its youth and developing deeper complexities with bottle age.

he estate’s reputation as a top quality wine producer took off in 1945 after a series of exceptional vintages. Since then, Lynch-Bages has continued to produce excellent wines, even during years considered difficult in the Bordeaux region. The wine’s deep colour and tannic backbone have become part of its signature style. Jean-Michel Cazes, grandson of Jean-Charles, has worked hard to develop and refine the wine’s supple and smooth structure over the years. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s precise and excellent winemaking techniques have served to firmly establish Lynch-Bages reputation for consistent quality.

Our lifeline in Paris

Both of our airport drivers were excellent, and it was so reassuring knowing that they were there to pick us up and drop us off. Giverny was gorgeous, and our tour guide Paul really made the experience memorable. Our contact Edwige confirmed everything and made sure we were taken care of during our trip.

There were a lot of moving parts in our trip, that started in Paris, went through Reims and Champagne, to Strasbourg and Alsace, to Annecy and then Geneva. W arranged for terrific guides, one more knowledgeable and interesting after the next. The drivers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful cooking class in Alsace.

Beautiful Day In the Rhone Valley

By: Jessica L

Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

I had an incredible day with Laurent in the Northern Rhone Valley. I have always wanted to see the vineyards of Cote Rotie and Condrieu. Laurent was so knowledgable about not only the wine regions, but also the food, history, and architecture of the region. His hospitality was also very genuine as I could tell he was very concerned about my personal expectations and goals of the tour. I learned so much in one day that I now have to go back to do more exploration of the things I wasn't able to read about on-line when doing some studying prior to my trip. Laurent completely exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend his tour services to anyone looking to explore this region of France.

Champagne Tour


Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2017

While visiting Paris, we decided to take a day trip to Champagne. W Travel France provided the transportation and itinerary. We could not have spent a more enjoyable day in Champagne. Our guide arranged for visits to two Champagne houses (one small and one large) for tastings and lunch at a local brasserie, all the while educating us on the history of the region. Very well done!
