Luxury Wine Tours with Bernard Magrez

Some stories are told, others are lived!

Bernard Magrez focuses on sharing the refined magic of the Bordeaux vineyards with his guests. Eschewing the large-scale pre-packaged wine tours in favor of more intimate experiences, he welcomes visitors to his estates: the Château Pape Clément, Château La Tour Carnet, or Château Fombrauge. The details of each package are adjusted according to the wishes of individual guests; you might choose to be greeted with a Rolls Royce upon your arrival at the Bordeaux airport, spend a lazy afternoon picnicking in the château gardens, or experience the thrill of a helicopter ride over the vineyards.

A variety of tours and tasting classes are offered on the premises, with options for people just getting into the world of wines and for passionate enthusiasts. Bernard Magrez has entrusted the completion of the culinary experience to Chef Jérôme Bourcié, who creates a menu pleasing to even the most discerning of tastes. After a satisfying meal, guests can return to a refreshing night's sleep in one of the suites. The estate décor is characterized by lush fabrics and sumptuous antiques, paired just as artfully as the wine is with the meals, so as to create distinct atmospheres in every room.
