Full description
Meet your wine educator. Take part in a casual wine tasting class and significantly improve your skills in tasting and comparing fine French wines. To start you off on this 2-hour activity, you’ll enjoy a welcoming glass of white wine and a glass of red wine. Learn to break the code of wine tasting by using their color, aroma, and taste.        Then you’ll take a tour of France through its wines. Taste 4 wines from the 4 main wine regions of France, discovering their diversity and hearing about the concepts of ‘terroir’ and ‘appellation’. Afterwards your wine educator will conduct a blending workshop. Bordeaux wines are blends made from various types of grapes, such as Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, and others.                Taste each type separately and create your very own ‘cuvée’ from the varieties that you have preferred. At the end of the class you’ll have a chance to enjoy your wines with traditional French delicacies followed by a casual & chic lunch. After lunch, enjoy a scenic drive to the beautiful Saint Emilion region, kicking off your tour with a visit to an authentic and charming family-run estate along the right bank.              Feel the intimacy of the private chateau as you tour the traditional vat room and cellar of this intimate estate, and then delight in a tasting class, learning the steps of wine tasting and educating your nose to identify wine aromas. At the end of the visit, you will enjoy some of their wines, and then make your way to the Great Classified Growth estate overlooking the Saint Emilion vineyards.                  There, you will enjoy explanations about the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle, and then reward yourself with an aperitif accompanied by some French delicacies, such as fresh bread and cheese. In the early evening, enjoy a guided tour of the village of Saint Emilion, classified on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

Amazingly wonderful!

Everything was just wonderful! Celine our sommelier was knowledgeable and truly gave a sense of history and recognition that made the experience more rewarding. At the end it was like she was our friend, and we learned more in a more natural way. The tour was very complete, we had two visits to different chateaux one more old school the other more technological. So, we got to see it all, St. Emillion ville, what a wonderful scenery!, wine crops, chateaux with well spoked english managers who in different ways manage to teach us their knowledge. Even though my husband knows a lot about wine he found this experience wonderful, if we could do it again some other time we would! Absolutely recommended. Complete-fun-unique-smallgroup-all the good stuff! I can even say this was one of my best highlights of the trip! Merci beacoup Celine!
