What to expect

Starting in the city of Bordeaux, a short drive in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan brings you out of the city to the picturesque countryside plains and rolling hills of the right bank wine producing area.

Choose from the following tour options:

Option 1 - Visit & Wine tasting in one Grand Cru Chateau + private visit of the underground monuments of Saint Emilion

This option is perfect for those of you who wish to combine wine & heritage. Visit one classified Growth Chateau, get familiar with its technical installations and cellars and participate in a commented tasting of the wines.

Go on a walking tour with your guide in the village of Saint Emilion and discover the most significant landmarks of the village. From the history of the eponymous 8th century monk, to the digging of the surprising monolithic church, the visit will enable you to discover monuments of your choice among the hermitage of Émilion, the Trinity Chapel and its medieval paintings, the catacombs as well as the underground church.

Option 2 - Visit & Wine tasting in two Grand Cru Chateaux of Saint Emilion + private visit of the underground monuments of Saint Emilion

This option is perfect for those that want to experience a more in depth wine tour. Combine the visit to a very modern winery with that of a more traditional, family owned one. By doing so, it will be possible for you to better comprehend the technical transformations that have taken place over the years and what are the principal differences between traditional and modern winemaking and the repercussions this has on the structure, characteristics and aromas of the wines produced.

Option 3 - Combine Saint Emilion with Pomerol and Visit 3 Wineries

Same features as option 2 with one extra visit & wine tasting in the Pomerol appellation.
