SPRINGVILLE, Pa. – Tripsite – the comprehensive marketplace for cycling tours to Europe, Asia and around the World – announces the new Bordeaux-Châteaux, Rivers & Wine tour for 2016. The region of Bordeaux, located in sun-drenched, southwest France is the perfect setting for a bike and boat tour. Set at the confluence of the Garonne River and the Gironde estuary, it is one of the most prolific and famous wine growing regions in the world. Caressed by Atlantic breezes, the vineyards that cover the rolling hills of the region have produced some of France’s most remarkable wines for centuries. Appellations such as Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, Médoc and Margaux have made Bordeaux wines world famous.
The city of Bordeaux lies in the heart of the region and serves as the cultural center. Once known as “Sleeping Beauty”, Bordeaux stretches along the riverbanks, inviting visitors to savor its grand architecture, tempting cafés and superb museums. This city sleeps no more! Cruise the French rivers and bike through vineyards on carefully chosen routes and experience the French joie de vivre!
On board you will discover a wide variety of excellent local wines to enjoy during dinner or simply to sample at your leisure. The region's distinct cuisine will be featured, prepared only with the freshest ingredients.
