If you are only staying a few days in Bordeaux then this small group wine tour is for you. It covers a full day of visits starting in the morning with a scenic drive from Bordeaux through the vineyards and rolling hills located on the right bank. Before visiting the UNESCO world heritage site of Saint Emilion village, the wine tour kicks off in the surrounding countryside with a visit and wine tasting session. The right bank includes many wine areas such as Saint Emilion, Pomerol, Castillon cotes de Bordeaux and also Fronsac or Lalande de Pomerol. Each region’s terroir offers unique features, and each has its own history of local wine making
After the guided visits and wine tastings at local wineries, move on with your English-speaking driver tour guide to the gorgeous village of Saint Emilion itself. The village of Saint Emilion is named after a monk who left his region of origin and settled down in the area hundreds of years ago. The village is a rare example of a largely intact medieval town whose geography has not been modified over the centuries. Here, you will enjoy a walking tour taking in important historical sites like the Romanesque cloister and the monolithic church carved into the limestone cliffs. Following the village tour, enjoy some free time to explore on your own before we take you to another wine tasting in a carefully selected local winery. The tour returns to Bordeaux in comfort by late afternoon.
