(PRWEB) March 27, 2010 -- Join Off the Beaten Path for its 5 day/4 night wine and culinary walking tour of the Bordeaux and Saint Emilion wine region for unparalleled fun, great food and exceptional wines. Designed for the active traveler, enjoy exclusive winery tours, VIP wine tasting, sumptuous gourmet meals and cooking classes in combination with daily walks of prestigious vineyards to discover classified wine estates (chateaux) in a relaxing, unpretentious small group.
As wine industry insiders, Off the Beaten Path secures winery tours and VIP wine tasting that are unavailable to the public. In addition to winery tours and tastings, share in authentic local experiences along the roads less traveled during daily walks through vineyards to stop for photo ops, pick grapes, smell the flowers and talk to the field workers. In the evenings, participate in cooking classes at home with local, celebrity chefs, one in a 19th century castle and the other a traditional farm home in Sauternes. A day in Saint Emilion sets the stage for another wine lover's experience during a private wine appreciation and tasting workshop with friends Patrick and Jean-Louis. Come as a couple, come alone or bring a friend or colleague, and enjoy the best Bordeaux and Saint Emilion have to offer.
