Bordeaux Wine & Castles Trails
Bordeaux France
Imagine discovering the great wines of Bordeaux, some of the world’s most famous vineyards, from the very best vantage point in the gorgeous French countryside - the back of a horse!

Riding through prestigious wine country with the Bordeaux Wine & Castles Ride, we sample the best there is on offer: Médoc, Côtes de Blaye, Côtes de Bourg, Fronsac, Lalande de Pomerol, St Emilion, l’Entre deux mers, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, Graves and Sauternes! Both reds and whites compliment the delicious heritage we encounter along the way, such as the Citadelle de Blaye, built by Vauban during the 18th century, or the medieval city of Saint Emilion, the Rauzan castle and the 13th century English bastide of Cadillac. An exceptional riding tour!

The alternate Medoc Beach & Wine Ride will take you in an enchanting exploration of the beautiful and wild countryside: to the beaches of the Atlantic ocean coastline, mythical wine châteaux, vast and ancient forests, a landscape full of famous history and equally famous food. This intriguing trail offers the avid horseback rider plenty of variety in terrain, from the marshy areas of Lower Médoc to the large, sandy beaches of the coast where we will find the curious location where the waters of the Gironde merge with the powerful Atlantic Ocean. Ride through the Landes forest's simply endless pine woods, reaching as far as the eye can see, visit the hidden gem lakes and the little islands of the Gironde River, landmark green dots found resting between the two banks of the estuary.
