A Complimentary Windstar Destination Discovery Event
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 a private chateau in Bordeaux, you’ll feel a warm welcome with an offer of a glass of wine.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn a little about French cooking as you sample fine wines accompanied by French appetizers, while a quartet of classical musicians will perform. We have forgotten none of your senses when planning this invitation-only event exclusively for Windstar guests.
