Who said going on vacation means eating more than you are used to and putting on a few pounds? When you visit the French region of Bordeaux it is totally possible to eat only fruit salads. Ok, maybe fruit salads with only grapes in them, fermented grapes… have wine for dinner for god’s sake, you are in Bordeaux.
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.
