Full description
The wine region of Libournais encompasses much of what is referred to as the Right Bank. Named after its historical capital, the expression Right Bank typically refers to wines from the Pomerol and St-Emilion areas of the Libournais. There are several villages around the region that share the Saint-Émilion name, such as Montagne-Saint-Émilion and St-Georges-Saint-Émilion that are named the satellite appellations. The area is bordered to the west by Pomerol. Merlot is the dominant grape in this area, followed by Cabernet Franc and a very small quantity of Malbec that is tending to disappear. The climate and damper, cool soils of the area makes it difficult for Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to fully ripen and as such is less often used. Depart for the Saint Emilion wine region and enjoy a visit and wine tasting at a famous classified growth Chateaux of the Pomerol or Saint Emilion appellation. Afterwards, arrive in the village of Saint Emilion and enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide to discover the main monuments of this quaint hilltop village. During your free time for lunch and personal discovery, why not discover the underground monuments of Saint Emilion? In the afternoon experience another visit and wine tasting session in one of the selected Classified Chateaus of Saint Emilion.

This was an amazing experience! My girlfriends and I went on this tour and ended up having the tour to ourselves. Our guide Emilie was very friendly and knowledgeable! We quickly became great friends with our guide. We learned about the wine making process and how to properly taste wine at our first chateau then put our skills to the test at two other chateaus :) Each chateau was welcoming and had a unique feel to it, providing us with a great picture of St Emilion region. The stop in the town of St Emilion for lunch was a lovely rest break and again our guide was very helpful providing us information about the history. Would highly recommend this tour!

A fun, comfortable, and relaxing way to get to know St. Emilion!

We enjoyed this tour last week (July 2019) and enjoyed an incredible day touring chateaus and restaurants in St. Emilion with our incredible guide, Emily. The entire experience was very pleasant and it is clear the tour company takes great pride in their selection of guides, chateaus to visit, and the day-long itinerary. We will ABSOLUTELY book this provider again in the future! Many thanks to Emily for an awesome day-long experience!
