Frequently cited as one of the finest wine regions on the Right Bank of Bordeaux (and, by extension, one of the best in the world) St. Émilion should be top of the bucket list for anyone with even the faintest fondness for wine. It’s not just the exquisite wines that make it worth a visit, of course – Bordeaux also happens to be one of the world’s prettiest wine regions, too.
- Take part in a full day of touring around the St. Émilion region, and drink in not just the wines but also the views, as you pass through miles and miles of vineyards and the glorious châteaux for which the region is known.
- Taste some of the finest wines on the planet at two Grand Cru Classé wineries. Merlot fans, this one is for you – it’s what St. Émilion does best.
You’ll journey out from Bordeaux City into the region’s surrounding vineyards and towards those which make up the St. Émilion sub-region. Your experienced, multi-lingual guide and driver will take you to two of the most prestigious châteaux in the region for a comprehensive, in-depth tour and a tasting of the wines – primarily Merlot blends, though the region is also known for its Cabernet Francs, and probably two at each winery – before enjoying the drive back to Bordeaux.
- Upgrades are available and this itinerary serves simply as a guideline – we’ll be happy to alter any details around your needs or wishes and include travel and accommodation.
- This day tour is semi private and may include up to seven other wine enthusiasts – still allowing for an intimate experience with the wine makers themselves. Private tours can also be arranged.
