Cruises from Pauillac
The French town of Pauillac is a small wine producing port on the Gironde estuary, the largest estuary in Europe, located approximately an hour from Bordeaux. This area is reputed to be one of the greatest wine-producing areas in France. Indeed, it is central to the most important vineyards of Bordeaux, and home to three of Bordeaux's five first growth wines. Among the wine estates in the vicinity are Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, Chateau Latour and Chateau Mouton Rothschild, and many others where visitors are able to enjoy tasting the local wines and touring the chateaux, some of which offer art exhibitions.
