Bordeaux: A Perfect Blend

Archetypical red Bordeaux wine is a blend of grape varietals – including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. And this Windstar-only event is a classic blend of sensory delights.

You will ride through the French countryside, taking in the breathtaking views of spectacular wine estates and well-tended vineyards. When you arrive at Chateau Giscours, you’ll feel a warm welcome with an offer of a glass of wine or cocktail, before you experience a guided tour of the cellars.

Your tour through the estate is a walk through French history. The first written reference to the domain of Giscours is a deed confirming the sale of the estate dating from 1330, when Giscours was a fortified keep. Vineyard records go back to 1552. After enjoying your tour, you’ll arrive at the Halle Suzanne where you’ll have the opportunity to learn a little about French cooking as your dinner is prepared before you.

While your meal is served, a quartet of classical musicians will perform. We have forgotten none of your senses when planning this invitation-only event exclusively for Windstar guests.
