Description

Pick up in central Bordeaux and depart for the village of Saint Emilion. The history of the village goes back to medieval times and the whole jurisdiction is classified as UNESCO World Heritage for its natural landscape. The village is made up of fascinating Romanesque churches and ruins stretching all along steep and narrow streets.


Concerning the wines of Saint Emilion, known as the right bank, the Romans were the ones who originally planted the vineyards as early as the 2nd century. Reminders of the Roman techniques of wine planting can be seen in some of the estates such as chateau Bellevue owned by world famous Angelus winery. The village was named after the monk Émilian (which then derived into Emilion), a traveling confessor, who settled in a hermitage carved into the rock in the 8th century.


First experience a visit and wine tasting session in a Grand Cru estate of Saint Emilion. Then discover the village of Saint Emilion through a guided walking tour. Finally, you will have some free time for personal discovery or have the possibility of enjoying an optional and free wine tasting session in one of the numerous cellars of the village.
