BESPOKE TOUR IN BORDEAUX, COGNAC & BASQUE COUNTRY

Indeed, Bordeaux is the world’s most renowned wine brand but it is also an exceptional city inscribed on UNESCO world Heritage List. Of course, besides the prestigious wine estates (Medoc, Saint Emilion ….) in its immediate neighborhood we shall not miss also amazing places like Arcachon Bay among many others, then further north the Charente and Cognac regions, as well  as further south the Basque Country.
