What you can expect

Discover Saint-Emilion as you sip and swoosh your way through an elegant wine tasting. Listen to a connoisseur describe the flavours your palette is experiencing, and learn to detect subtle notes. Your guide provides rich stories about the history and importance of this lovely region.

After a short drive, reach the Saint-Emilion wine producing area. Upon arrival, discover a famous Grand Cru estate that has been carefully selected for the quality of the wines it produces. Visit the technical installations area to discover how the wine is being made before participating in a narrated wine tasting session. Learn about colour, tannin, aromas, and style as the expert walks you through your tasting.

Then follow your guide on a short walking tour in the village of Saint-Emilion. Here, you also have some free time to explore the picturesque village on your own. If you'd like, enjoy an optional wine tasting session to discover other famed appellations of the area such as Pomerol, Cotes de Castillon, and Lussac. Once you're finished, meet back up with your guide to journey back to Bordeaux.
