Discover three of the most treasured gourmet locations in Bordeaux. We will see, smell, and taste some of the best cheeses, desserts, and wines Bordeaux has to offer!
This tour focuses on savoring the sumptuous flavors of Bordeaux with scenic and historic promenades linking our tastings.
We will visit one of the oldest and most famous cheese shops in Bordeaux, visiting their cheese caves located in the stone-vaulted cellars of a XVth century convent! Here we will find a treasure trove of cheeses being gently aged to their optimal maturity, with the aging process being explained by one of their expert staff. We will also enjoy a tasting of three cheeses all the while enjoying the atmosphere of the ancient underground caves.
Then we will visit a world-renowned Bordelaise company known for their resurrection of the canelé, the dessert originally prepared by the nuns for school children. We will learn about the history of this traditional dessert and how its creation in Bordeaux is related to wine! We will enjoy a relaxing moment sampling this and other interesting desserts, as well as a hot beverage.
Then we will finish with the pleasure of a wine tasting. A small boutique wine bar will welcome us into their sun-filled courtyard where we will taste three Bordeaux wines each with its own unique style, selected for us and introduced by their wine steward.
