Red Wine Roads

Harvest Time on the Red Wine Roads – 2 weeksBottles of Wine

France:  Southern Burgundy, Bordeaux & the Dordogne

On this page, you will find...



St-Emilion, Monbazillac, the “Côtes” of Nuits & Beaune.... If you can cycle through a town not on a wine label, we’ll treat you to a glass of gros rouge qui tache.  (Literally, “fat red which stains.”  How poetic).   Vineyards surround us for much of our route, and this is your definitive chance to decide whether you are a Cabernet boy or a Pinot Noir girl....

Foie gras, snails, roast duck with drippings, whole hams in cream sauces....  De Gaulle once rhetorically asked how he could hope to govern a country with 300 varieties of cheese.  A good portion are made along our route.  Not exactly a health spa, but if you can’t do this on a bicycle, when can you?
