I am planning a trip to Bordeaux in August for about a week. Any suggestions on where to stay, wineries to visit, restaurants, etc? I recently took a trip to Burgundy and some of the discussions were quite helpful. I haven't come across any suggestions about Bordeaux - so any thoughts would be very much appreciated!
You are going to have an incredible time! Keep in mind many estates close down in August for weeks-sometimes an entire month so making appointments is critical for tastings and visits. If you have a car, a drive to Arcachon (1hour) to beach side town to escape summer heat of city. Enjoy your trip!
