Wine weekend for two - Gironde (France) :  

The experience

Enjoy a trip through one of the most extensive vineyards in the world. The following vineyards are on the program: Graves, Pessac Leognan and Saint-Emilion. You will be welcomed by the producers of the great wines who will reveal all the secrets of wine making, the industrial way and the traditional way. You will have the opportunity to taste the products and "test samples" of the best wines. During this weekend you will be accommodated in a charming XVIII century castle. You will also enjoy some local products in this castle during meals.

Day 1: Graves and Pessac Leognan

Morning: Visit a tasting in the area of the Graves family. In the neighborhood of Brède, the land of Graves, you will visit the castle and wine production. The Graves vineyard is surrounded by a narrow strip of land along the Garonne, almost 5 km away, from Jalle Blanquefort to Langon. These circumvent the area of the sweet white wine. You will discover a vineyard where the grapes are harvested by hand and here you can enjoy white and red wine. You leave this area with 6 bottles per pair.

Gourmet Lunch: During this lunch you will stay in a real inn in Sources de Caudalie. The environment is very beautiful in this area. The Chateau Lafitte Smith, more, extensive wooded gardens and vineyards are the perfect combination for a wonderful walk to so perfectly relax. The main products from this region are produced under the motto "to produce healthy food". The wine list during this lunch will of course be exceptional.

Noon: Visit and tasting at Château Smith Haut Lafitte, Grand Cru de Grave, Pessac Leognan. The visit ends with a tasting of one of the most famous wines in the world. You will then be given the opportunity to explore the area (vineyard, lake, hotel, restaurant, wine therapy center) yourself.

Accommodation: In the evening you are expected a few kilometers away in another castle, this time to spend the night. For dinner you have plenty of time to refresh yourself in this XVIII century castle.

Dinner: Dinner will take place in a restaurant which is 3 km from the castle in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards. Here you can enjoy specialties from the South-West.

Morning:

Visit a tasting at Chateau Grand Cru, court of Saint-Emilion. Together with your host you will discover the secrets of this famous wine, which for centuries has kept the reputation of Saint-Emilion high.

The following items will be discussed during this morning:

  • Visit to the chai chests
  • Presentation of the historic property and the general appellation Saint-Emilion classification of wines.
  • Evocation of the topography of the vineyard, nature of the soil, grape varieties, vegetable cycle and the work of the vine.
  • Introduction to viticulture and wine aging.
  • Tasting one or more years.

The wines of Saint Emilion not only have taste, but also sentimental value, aesthetic value and are appreciated by collectors worldwide. You leave with a box of 3 years of production, per pair.

Wine weekend for two - Gironde (France) : Fascinating Facts

Wine has existed long before our time. Acheologists have found a wine press and a number of amphorae that can be dated back to the year 1500 BC. The amphorae were earthenware jugs that used to be used to store grain or liquids. Unfortunately, these amphorae were not resistant to the wine, so resin was added. The Greeks found out that the resin, the shelf life of the wines improved so they continued to add it. The retsina is the most famous Greek wine and is still made.

Did you know that?
- A scientist who studies wine is called an oenologist? The entire branch of science is called oenology.
- In France exclusively the juice of fresh wines is used almost everywhere?
- The ancient Greeks always diluted their wine with water before they drank it?
