What to expect

In the morning, your guide will pick you up at your accommodation in Bordeaux and go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, you'll begin to make your way to the Saint Emilion wine producing region and its picturesque countryside plains and rolling hills. Each of these local wineries produce vintages with distinct soil features backed by a long winemaking heritage.

Your first major stop on this personalized half day trip will be in one of the local estates for a visit and wine tasting at one of the Grands Crus Classés Chateau's where you will get to discover the vineyards, tour the estate and learn about its history, learn about winemaking and taste carefully selected vintage wines. They are a blend of Merlot grapes with deep, bold flavors, along with other local grape varieties, especially Cabernet Franc and, to a lesser degree, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Then you'll arrive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Saint Emilion village, where you'll stroll through the quaint, cobbled streets of this medieval town, while your tour guide recounts local history, from the days of the 8th century hermit Emilion, to the 19th century mining galleries that lie beneath the village. Important historical sites include the Romanesque cloister and the Monolithic church carved into the limestone cliffs, also known as the underground monuments. Your guide has privileged access to this monument, so a private visit can be arranged if you'd like.

You'll end your tour with some free time to explore on your own in the village. Why not enter one of the many wine cellars to continue your tasting session? Then, you'll be driven back to Bordeaux.
