From Bordeaux: Full-Day St Emilion Wine Tasting Tour

1. From Bordeaux: Full-Day St Emilion Wine Tasting Tour

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 which 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 make 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. Afterward, arrive in the village of Saint Emilion and enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide to discovering the main monuments of this quaint hilltop village. During your free time for lunch and personal discovery, visit 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.

We enjoyed an amazing day visiting 3 very different kinds of wineries and the town of St Emil. Our guide Clement was very professional and was able to answer to all of our questions about wine, wine making, Bordeaux etc. We can highly recommend this tour to anyone despite whether you know a lot about wines already or whether you're a beginner. Also the hosts at the wineries were super friendly and the introductions were interesting and had a different angle to the wine making and tasting scheme. Thank you for an amazing day! Best wishes Maija and Jaakko

Very informative without being boring, our guide Luigi was very well informed about wine and products offered at Saint Emiliom and Pomerol regions. We had some free time for lunch. All in all we had a really great day and would suggest to any wine lover!
