One Day Bordeaux Wine Tour: Graves region - 7 to 15 people

The Graves region, first area in Bordeaux to produce and sell high quality wines as early as the 12th century. Graves is derived from gravel which is the prime component in the soil, along with clay and sand. This combination makes for the finest terroir in the region.  Your one day Bordeaux wine tour in the graves will include dry white, sweet white and red wines accompanied by a delicious picnic lunch.
