Taste the wines that are loved by connoisseurs the world over

Uniworld’s luxurious river ship, the River Royale, captures the essence of the Bordeaux region, with a timeless style that emphasizes elegance and comfort as you sail through southwestern France. Carrying no more than 130 passengers, this intimate ship is a wonderful place to savour the scenery, dine on exquisite cuisine, and relax with friends over drinks in the Salon Gascogne’s Aquitaine Bar and other richly appointed public areas.

Set off from Cadillac and visit one of southwest France’s finest wine estates for a tasting of Sauternes, the highly prized, golden-hued sweet wine. Learn about the art of wine-pairing and be treated to lunch at Château
de Cazeneuve.

Pauillac, the gateway to the famed Médoc wine route, consists of just 3,000 acres of vineyards. Although the region produces both red and white grapes, only red wine can bear the name Médoc on the label. Enjoy a panoramic tour of the celebrated Haut-Médoc wine-growing region and visit one of its many estates for a tasting. Those who prefer to “Go Active” can cycle through the lush landscapes of historic estates that have remained unchanged for centuries, and stop at Château Lynch-Bages along the way for a wine tasting.

Located on the Gironde estuary, the pretty town of Blaye produces high-quality red and white wines. Blaye winegrowers are very enthusiastic about their profession and happily welcome visitors to their family-owned estates. Embark on a fascinating guided walk through the Blaye Fortress, a 17th Century UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visit the medieval walled village of Bourg-sur-Gironde.

Saint-Émilion is perhaps France’s most popular wine region, with stunning architecture and historical vineyards dating back centuries. The Romans were the first to plant vines here, and due to its fascinating history, Saint-Émilion was the first vineyard region to be protected by UNESCO.

No trip to France is complete without a stroll round a local farmers’ market. Located in the main square, the Place Abel Surchamp in Libourne hosts the largest fresh food market in the region.

The city of Bordeaux is situated on a crescent-shaped bend in the Gironde River, hence the town’s nickname “Port of the Moon.” Stroll the quaint streets with a local expert, browsing luxury food halls, local delicacies such as canelés and chocolates, and popular wine bars.
