Bordeaux Wine Experience attracts oenophiles

Bordeaux Wine Experience 

ABOVE: Spend a "wine weekend" in a private cottage next to a French chateau. INSET: Ronald and Margeret Rens, owners of the Bordeaux Wine Experience.

Ronald and Margaret RensWe haven't yet sampled any of the wine and culinary tours from the Bordeaux Wine Experience, but they do sound tempting. Proprietors Ronald and Margaret Rens offer  week-long "grand tours," day tours, and even helicopter tours for well-heeled oenophiles who enjoy viewing vineyards from above. Winelovers who'd rather stay put (and perhaps enjoy a bit of romance with their Bordeaux) can book "wine weekends" in gîtes or cottages on the grounds of a chateau just outside the city. 

Two of this year's week-long tours were already sold out when we wrote this post, but the two remaining tours still had spots--and one, the Bordeaux Fall Harvest Tour, sounded especially intriguing.
