Bordeaux Food and Wine Tour

When you take a gourmet walking food and wine tour with us in Bordeaux, you will be sure we are going to introduce you to high quality food and local products. While passing famous locations like the Grand Theatre or Place de la Bourse, maybe we will taste caviar, oysters, Landais duck and Basque goat cheese. Our food tours include Bordeaux wine, with a description of the many styles of local wines. It’s not only bold reds in Bordeaux!

A standard Bordeaux Food Tour with us would take you through the most historic areas of Bordeaux from Saint Pierre to Chartrons, discussing historic foods from medieval times until modern day. We will take each product and break it down for you, where it is made, how it is made, and what changes it has seen over the centuries. We like to change it up a bit each time based on clients demands, so feel free to email us what interests you the most…local pastry? Cheese? Cured meats? Wine? Do you prefer markets or private chefs tasting menus?

You’ll learn how the recipe for the famous Bordeaux canelé has changed over the centuries. Taste wine from sweet whites to dry reds, all from Bordeaux. Discover vegan wine. Would you like to try duck ham, or truffled Basque cheese? How a young enslaved boy from Reunion Island (France) revolutionized the vanilla trade? The different styles of cuisine in Aquitaine?

We are working on a vegan tour and Chartons food and wine tour for 2022. So, stay in touch and we hope to see you soon!
