Wine and golf with the finest gastronomy, the perfect combination.
If you’re a foodie with a hunger for fine dining and a thirst for fine wines, you will be spoilt for choice during your holiday here with Greens & Grapes. Choose from Bordeaux to La Rioja including a stop-over in the Basque country. No longer is wine the sole star of the table! The Bordeaux of today is cosmopolitan and gastronomically adventurous, and the city and its surroundings are well and truly on the map as one of the most interesting food places in France.
Blends of Bordeaux Wines
We have met every wine producer and meticulously selected vineyards to suit all palates, but if you want to taste a specific wine, or meet the producer of your favourite château, we will do our best to accommodate you.
Bordeaux is the most famous and highly coveted wine blend in the world. Our bespoke holidays and mini breaks incorporate a rare opportunity to taste wines such as Margaux, Pessac-Léognan, Sauternes, Pomerol, Saint-Émilion, to name just a few, all of which are less than an hour from Bordeaux. And you don’t have to be expert in wine to appreciate!
Fine Gastronomy for Foodies
Michelin star chefs are keen to make their mark in this up and coming foodies’ heaven. From Pierre Gagnaire’s La Grande Maison and Gordon Ramsay’s Le Pressoir d’Argent. Read more about Michelin star restaurants in the South of France.
Alongside there are many inspiring brasseries and bistros and now, several of the Bordeaux châteaux are opening restaurants to showcase how well their wines pair with food. And let’s not forget the many traditional and charming eateries scattered amongst the picturesque towns of the region! Read more.
No map reflects a region’s gastronomy quite like that of Aquitaine. On its western seaboard, close to where the broad Garonne river flows into the Atlantic, the alluvial plain is studded with some of the most famous names in wine. Bordeaux and the region produces world-famous specialities and produce from oysters from the Bay of Arcachon; milk-fed Pauillac lamb grazed on the Médoc marshes; we rear ducks for magret de canard (duck breast), and the asparagus is wonderful.

Greens and Grapes have selected vineyards and châteaux which can be combined with a golf trip. We’ve met every single wine producer so that we can give you the best recommendation and experience, whether you are a fine connoisseur or a novice.
