Golf du Medoc offers chance in a lifetime
July 12, 2011

Golf du Médoc Hotel and Spa has a special association with the wine of the French region and is offering a unique opportunity to see at first-hand what only wine professionals are privileged to witness with its involvement with The Harvest Workshop of the Médocaines.

Every Monday for four weeks in late September to mid October, wine lovers will have the opportunity to take part in the vendage at one of the highly-respected Médoc by Bordeaux vineyards with a round of golf either side of a three-night stay at Golf du Médoc.

Seldom does the chance to actually see how wine is manufactured arise for non-professionals.

The day at the vineyard includes an introduction to grape tasting, taking part in harvesting and wine tasting. At midday, there is a tasting and a winegrower's lunch served followed in the afternoon by a tour of the cellars, more information on the harvest and methods of wine making, tasting of the wine out of the vat and finishing off with a bottled wine tasting.

Golf du Médoc Hotel& Spa Resort, named as the best golf resort in France at last year's World Travel Awards, has put together a package that involves two rounds of golf on one or both of its championship courses.

The links-style Chateaux Course hosted the French Open in 1999 and also stages the French PGA Championship on an annual basis while the Les Vignes Course offers a slightly gentler experience, but nonetheless striking for its delightful design and the need for strategy to achieve the best results.

With its strong association with wine and excellent golf courses, the Bordeaux region has made great strides in the last ten years with its heritage and development. Indeed the city has been recognised as a Unesco World Heritage Site for more than ten years now and that is a reflected by a listing of more than 350 classified buildings in the city.

The Médoc vineyards promoting this special experience include Chateau Paloumey, Chateau La Tour de Besson, Chateau Le Taillan and Chateau Loudenne. All of them produce classic, traditional wines of the Bordeaux region. And when you have finished your tour, Golf du Médoc can supply you with a fine range of wines from its extensive cellar on your return and enjoy its excellent dinner menu.

Prices for the package start from €435 per person, including a full day at the Harvest,

2 green fees, bed and breakfast with two people sharing a room for the three-night stay at the four-star resort.

Golf du Médoc is a 30-minute drive from Bordeaux airport which is easily accessible from many airports in the UK.
