For wine lovers, there’s no better time to take a tour of Bordeaux than autumn. It’s certainly warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the cool night air in comfort (above pic, Bordeaux in October) The grapes have ripened, the harvest is in and the wine is in production. It’s a time of celebration and the perfect season to discover the tastes and the terroir – that oh-so-French word that means location, weather, temperature and so much more.

Artistic Gourmet Adventures run a week long brilliant tour of Bordeaux in October. You’ll visit exquisite St Emilion, pretty and quaint Pomerol. You’ll get to know the fabulous city of Bordeaux, known as the Peal of Aquitaine. And, you’ll explore the legendary wine areas of Medoc, Sauternes and Graves.
