Welcome to Bourgueil & St-Nicolas-De-Bourgueil, two neighbouring towns focused exclusively on producing impeccable Cabernet Franc.
You will be amazed at just what can be achieved in half a day!
It might not seem like long, but spanning over four hours, your attentive expert guide will be on hand to ensure that all your needs are met, and all your expectations exceeded..
The beauty of these two wine making villages lies in their tradition. These are not tourist hotspots, and represent a true slice of French life to anyone willing to explore two lesser known, but equally important, Cabernet Franc appellations.
Quiet, unassuming, rural surroundings featuring hard working men and women who heavily value traditional ethics over flamboyance.
Here you shall discover an array of carefully made red wine; ranging from fresh, fruity, light reds, right through to tough, rich, tannic, ageworthy oaked reds which reward patience.
There is also a limited amount of rosé bottled here which is always dry and often fresh, lively and gloriously approachable.
Regardless of what style of wine you prefer, it can be made accessible to you on a half day tour.
