Bordeaux Winetrail Cycling Holidays

Our Bordeaux Winetrail Cycling Holiday is a fantastic exploration of the wines from the most famous vineyard region in the world.

We start in Les Eyzies and spend Sunday cycling along the Dordogne to the edge of the Bordeaux vineyards.  From Monday we're in wine country.  We'll explore little-known islands of quality, such as Pécharment near Bergerac, as well as famous vineyards in St Emilion and the Haut Médoc.  A feature of this cycling tour are the exquisite dessert wines that we'll taste in Monbazillac and Haut Montravel, and we finish up exploring the médoc on the borders of the Atlantic.

Along the way, of course, back roads, vineyards, great food, and truly spectacular views across the Gironde.

Tour dates

Our guide led us expertly on each day's ride of 30 miles or so, selecting quiet roads and tasty lunch stops and, at the end of every afternoon, a comfortable hotel with a menu to do justice to the region's rich gastronomy. He carried a repair outfit, a first aid kit and a sense of humour, which coped with almost every eventuality.
