A Wine River Cruise in Bordeaux on Uniworld

About Bordeaux, France
Wine connoisseurs, this is the cruise for you! The world famous wine region of Bordeaux is home to some of the most famous wines and chateaux, grands crus, towns and legends. If you've ever heard mention of Medoc, Chateau Margaux, Saint-Emilion, Cadillac, or how US President and Founding Father Thomas Jefferson became America's first wine connoisseur during his time as ambassador to Franceā€¦ it's long past time you visited Bordeaux.

BestTrip's luxury Uniworld river cruise begins at the grand, exquisite city of Bordeaux with its magnificent 18th century cityscape, best seen from our ship. The region is intersected by 3 storied rivers, and unlike other river cruises that begin at one point and sail more or less straight up or down a river, in Bordeaux, our voyage takes us up and down the region's rivers, even returning occasionally to Bordeaux to start out in another direction. Many of the region's fabled towns, vineyards and chateaux are close to the riverbanks that gave birth to its legendary wines.
