Take part in the grape harvest at a Château in Bordeaux!
September is once again upon us, which means that summer is finally coming to a close and we are looking towards the autumn season. Lower but pleasant temperatures are a relief after the long summer heatwave, which also prepares us for the harvest season towards the end of the month.
During September and October, many Bordeaux wine estates and châteaux also prepare for the harvest, picking the finest grapes to make the perfect vintage. This also means that they close their doors to the public as they go through this busy period and are hard at work.
What if you could go backstage and see the harvest taking place right in front of you? With 1889 Travel France, we can grant you exclusive access to some of Bordeaux's finest châteaux, and offer you the unique experience of taking part in the harvest! You can pick and select the finest grapes from the estate together with the workers there, and gain first-hand insight into the process of creating an exceptional wine - from the beginning! A memory that will be treasured by wine connoisseur and enthusiasts alike!
At 1889 Travel France, we will be happy to customize the experience according to your guests’ wishes!
