Biarritz for Wine lovers
What could be more appealing that waking up on a sunny morning, finishing a pain chocolate, making your bed and hitting the open (and very beautiful) road to combine your taste of adventure with your love of wine ? Biarritz takes the crown for its proximity to some of the most renowned wine regions in France….perhaps even the world ! The rich earthy flavors of a good Bordeaux can be on the tip of your tongue in less than a 2 hour drive north! You could spend a entire holiday discovering the 7000 chateaux and millions of grapes that are just beyond your steering wheel. Saint Emilion , Pauillac, Margaux, Medoc and it doesn’t stop there ,Graves, Fronsac, we could go on and on !!
The Bordelaise infectious love of wine is serious and highly contagious BUT if that doesn’t whet your appetite and you're looking for a more ‘undiscovered’ French wine experience the small wine region of Irouleguy is literally on Biarritz’s doorstep. The French Basque region which lies right on the Spanish border spoils you with lush green rolling hills and classic Basque villages all at the end of your finger tips.
Not forgetting just a couple of hours away are the world famous Spain wine regions of Rioja, Navarra and the lesser know Basque region wines - Consider eating your Croque Monsieur in Biarritz in the morning, fasten your seat belt and be in Spain all in the same day – from there its all up to you how much more you want to discover !
