What to expect

Choose one these 3 options best adapted to your preference:

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

Visit a Grand Cru Winery:

In the morning, upon arrival in St Emilion, we will take you to one of our carefully selected partner wineries. Whether you have questions about history, technique, flavors, aromas, food & wine pairings don't hesitate to ask them anything. Visit classified Growth Chateau, technical installations and cellars and participate in a commented tasting of the Chateau wines.

Then, you'll embark on a private visit of Saint Emilion's wondrous underground monuments, that have earned its UNESCO heritage ranking. From the history of the founding monk of the village, to the digging of the surprising monolithic church, the visit will enable you to discover 4 monuments : the hermitage of Émilion, the Trinity Chapel and its medieval paintings, the catacombs as well as the underground Monolithic church.

Option 2 - Visit & Wine tasting in 2 Grand Cru Chateaux of Saint Emilion

This option is perfect for those that want to experience a more in depth wine tour. You will visit two very different wineries so that you can understand how techniques and production can vary. 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 they have the structure, characteristics and aromas of the wines produced. Then, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the Saint Emilion village.

Option 3 - Combine Saint Emilion with Pomerol and visit 3 wineries

This option is a perfect choice for novice and wine connoisseurs alike who want to experience two very different appellations of the right bank. By choosing this option, you will participate in two visits and wine tastings in the Saint Emilion appellation (same as option 2) with one extra visit & wine tasting in the Pomerol appellation.

Three of the most highly regarded Pomerol producers – Pétrus, Lafleur and Le Pin – are located there. Merlot is the dominant grape in Pomerol and plays a large part in making the wines rich, smooth and approachable at an early age, while also being capable of extended aging. Cabernet Franc is also often present, adding structure and an element of savory spice. These characteristics mean Pomerol wines are much sought after on the international market. The combination of two different appellations will allow you to dig deeper into the notion of 'terroir' which is the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate.
