The Great Châteaux & Vineyards of the Bordeaux: An FPRI Travel Experience

Bordeaux Wines

FPRI, in coordination with Academic Arrangements Abroad, would like to invite you to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime cultural cruise through France’s rich Bordeaux region. This is the land of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France, Queen of England, and one of the most powerful and charming women of the Middle Ages. Bordeaux’s fame as a capital of culture and wine has only grown since her day. During the autumn vendange, ply the Dordogne, Garonne, and Gironde rivers, stepping ashore to admire timeless architecture, learn about contemporary politics and culture, meet local winemakers, and enjoy haute cuisine.
