Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

A fantastic day. Olivier was an excellent guide/host. It was great to go around the different vineyards and we really enjoyed having the free time to explore Saint-Emilion on our own before meeting up with the rest of the group for a guided tour around the town. Would definitely recommend!

Relaxing day learning about wine

Charles was an excellent guide. We visited there chateaus and did tastings at each, and we also had two hours in St. Emilion to spend as we pleased. Charles equipped us with maps and lots of restaurant recommendations. For a fall day tour I was pleasantly surprised by what a job he did keeping us an schedule. The bonus is at the end of the tour I wasn’t exhausted at all and still had plenty of energy to enjoy my evening.

Must Visit outside Paris
Frances_C
, Jun 2022
We booked this day trip from Paris and took the 2-hour TGV train ride at 6:07am to get on time in Bordeaux meeting point. Our tour guide Hugo is like a wine guru and carries informative yet witty conversations. He’s like someone you would really want to drink with and have meaningful chats about anything under the sun. We were small group of 8 and everyone seem to get along well. We had enough time to wander around the magnificent Saint Emilion. Wine tasting was really enjoyable with no pressure at all to purchase, but you would regret if you don’t because the cellar doors that we visited offer the best price of these top notch wines. Highly recommend this tour and will get you back to Paris on time.

Pleasant Day in the Wine Country
Stephen_R

We enjoyed our tour of the Saint Emilion area and the wine tasting. The guide, however, was relatively new and didn't know his way around. As a result we experienced some delays in reaching our destinations. In addition, the consensus of the group (there were 6 of us) was that the wine at two of the three chateaus we visited was a bit disappointing.

We were able to see a number of different Chateaux and sample 10 wines from the area. The caves under the Château were very impressive. The local wine tour guides were very interesting.
