Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Le Verdon (Bordeaux)

Le Verdon (Bordeaux)

Situated on the Garonne River, 70 miles (113 km) inland from the Atlantic, Bordeaux's origin can be traced back to the 3rd century when it was Aquitaine's Roman capital called Burdigala. From 1154 to 1453, the town prospered under the rule of the English, whose fondness for the region's red wines gave impetus to the local wine industry. At various times, Bordeaux even served as the nation's capital: in 1870, at the beginning of World War I, and for two weeks in 1940 before the Vichy government was proclaimed. View more

Bordeaux's neo-classical architecture, wide avenues and well-tended public squares and parks lend the city a certain grandeur. Excellent museums, an imposing cathedral and a much-praised theatre add to the city's attractions. The principal highlights, clustered around the town centre, can easily be explored on foot.

Bordeaux & Medoc Wine Chateau with Lunch

Embrace the scenic splendour and flavours of Bordeaux and the Route des Châteaux during this full-day excursion to a Médoc wine château, and a city tour with lunch.


Medoc Wine Chateau Road and Vineyards

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to the Medoc area. Upon arrival, continue along the famous Route des Châteaux, the Medoc wine château road, which is located between the Gironde Estuary and Landes Forest, and offers magnificent views of vine-covered land as far as the eye can see. Medoc vineyards are orderly and well-kept almost to the point of fanaticism, and the region's famous châteaux produce divine wines that include Moulis, Listrac, Saint Julien, Saint Estèphe, Pauillac, and Margaux (with the celebrated château of the same name).


Wine Estate Chateau Tour and Tasting

During your drive through this beautiful region, a guided visit is made to the cellars of a famous wine estate château, such as Giscours, Kirwan, Cantenac Brown, Lascombes, Rausan Gassies, or Prieuré Lichine, among others. Learn about the estate's winemaking techniques, then proceed for a tasting of two wines from the estate. Following your visit, re-board your coach and continue on to Bordeaux City.


Bordeaux City

Upon arrival in Bordeaux City, take a short, panoramic tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. This distinction recognizes the beauty and unity of style of Bordeaux's architectural heritage, which has developed harmoniously over the centuries and remained remarkably well-preserved. Discover some of the city's major highlights, including the WWII German submarine base and approximately 29.6-acre (about 12-hectare) L'Esplanade des Quinconces. One of Europe's largest squares, it features a column commemorating the French Revolution. Other sights include the Place de la Bourse, Riverfront, Cailhau Gate and Opera House, also known as the 'Grand Theatre', one of the most beautiful theatres in Europe.


Lunch, Old Bordeaux and Shopping

Next, proceed for lunch at a local French restaurant. After lunch, take an optional guided walking tour in Old Bordeaux, and some free time at your leisure in the pedestrian and shopping area. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately two-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires advance booking 15 days prior to the start of the cruise. Cancellations received after this deadline will incur penalty charges of up to 100%, which will be billed to your shipboard account.

This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, at times over cobblestone surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and stairs and steps at the wine estate château. Walking in Bordeaux City is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility, but is not wheelchair-accessible. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. The tour sequence may vary.

Exclusive Lunch at Château Giscours

Indulge your senses with the exquisite beauty and flavours of the Médoc area during this full-day culinary and wine excursion.


Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to Château Giscours, located in the famed Margaux appellation, part of the Médoc area. The vineyards of Médoc, north of Bordeaux City, concentrate a lot of the flagship wine estates along its wine château road. Here lie the prosperous Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Margaux.


Château Giscours, part of the Medoc wine estate, has a long history dating from the 14th century. Its wine was classified in 1855, and believed to have been served to King Louis XIV in the 17th century. Salvador Dali was fond of saying, "He who knows how to taste does not drink wine, he savours secrets…secrets such as those that a glass of Château Giscours will whisper to the taste buds of lovers of wines."


Since 1995, a Dutch businessman, Eric Albada Jelgersma, took over management and set about meticulously renovating the vineyard and buildings to make this prestigious estate fully worthy of its ranking, the third Grand Cru Classé, in 1855. Aged in high quality oak barrels, this mostly Cabernet- and Merlot-based wine acquires its complexity over a period of months, subtly combining aromas of dark fruits and spices with the tannins in the wood to reach a sublime balance. The complex blending procedure, an important stage in the production of this great wine, requires the most advanced skills of the cellar-master and their team. Robert Parker gave the 2009 vintage a very respectable 94 points.


Upon arrival, take a guided tour of this beautiful and historic property, and its cellars. Afterward, proceed for an aperitif, followed by an elegant, four-course lunch accompanied by several of the château's excellent wines. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires advance booking one month prior to the start of the cruise. Cancellations received after this deadline will incur penalty charges of up to 100%, which will be billed to your shipboard account.
