South-West France Tour

Our tours are based out of Château de Fayolle, a beautiful property on the edge of Saussignac, a small village in the heart of South-West France.  This tour has been created for lovers of fine wine and food, and includes dining at three Michelin Star restaurants.  We also have a privately catered dinner one evening at your host's home in a wing of Château de Saussignac.

Our wine experience starts with tastings from two of Saussignac's local vineyards, followed by a wine education of Bordeaux Grand Crus, a day trip to the famous Bordeaux village of Saint Émilion (a UNESCO World Heritage site), including lunch at the restaurant of a Grand Cru Classé winery and visits to another two Grand Cru Classé estates.  Finally, we round the week off with a special tour of the Medoc wine region and a farewell dinner at our château.
