Bordeaux Chateaux, Wineries, and Vineyards

Drink Your Way through this Fascinating Wine Region in France

By

The Bordeaux region is the most important wine producing region in France. Small and mid-sized cruise ships can sail up the Gironde River to the city of Bordeaux, and cruise ship passengers can take bus tours of the Bordeaux wine region.

In addition, river cruise ships sail round-trip from Bordeaux on the Garonne, Gironde, and Dordogne Rivers. These week-long voyages allow guests to immerse themselves in the region, with tours to the Medoc, Margaux, Pomerol, and Sauternes wine areas. The ships also visit small towns and villages along the rivers.

The chateaux and vineyards were beautiful, and we all learned a lot about French wine-making and the history of the Bordeaux wine region.

Below are pictures of just a few of the 7,000 chateau in Bordeaux.
