Experience the château life, cuisine and fine wines during an exclusive visit to a French family-owned 18th-century château and its surrounding vineyards.

Depart from the pier aboard an air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy the approximately 30-minute journey to the Médoc vineyards located north of Bordeaux. Here you will find Château du Taillan, a château and wine estate that the Cruse family has owned and lived in for centuries.

After a visit of the cellars, enjoy a wine aperitif on the terrace overlooking the vineyards. Then, share a four-course dinner with the Cruses, who will entertain you with their family story, all the while explaining the production of the various wines served with the dinner. Afterwards, you will return to the pier in Bordeaux.
