Hire a 4X4 in Bordeaux, the wine capital of the world, and hit the highway via the Route des Châteaux. The Range Rover Vogue, the BMW X6 or the Mercedes Benz GL are all excellent companions for a tour of Chateau Palmer, a 128-acre winery set on a terraced plateau in the Margaux appellation. Housed in an 1856 stone building overlooking the Gironde estuary, the winery produces two labels, made with unusual combinations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes.
The most exciting time in Bordeaux is harvest time. If you happen to be so lucky as to find yourself during harvest time in Bordeaux, hire a 4X4 like the outstanding Porsche Cayenne and visit the Chateau Saint Emilion, taste the five Grand Crus and perhaps take a cooking class with a renowned chef.
Hire a 4X4 in Bordeaux and make every hour you spend driving these comfortable and exclusive vehicles a happy hour.
