Nestled in the heart of famous vineyards, Saint Emilion embodies the perfect balance between tradition and progress. While it is a vibrant town, bustling with modern amenities, the landscape also benefits from stunning rural views above the Dordogne valley.
An exceptional day tour focusing on Saint Emilion revolves around great wines (Cheval Blanc or Angelus) and unfolds in an authentic setting rooted in history. You’ll learn to savor different varieties of wines during your tours to the different chateaux or during specially organized wine tastings. You’ll enjoy wines such as the 1er Grand Cru Classé B Chateau beau Séjour or Chateau Figeac, as well as other Grands Crus Classés.
Maybe you’d like to try your hand at a cookery class? The satisfaction of enjoying the fruit of your efforts will be underscored by a selection of wines produced on site at the chateaux you’ve visited. Alternatives include workshops on wines and cheeses or wines and chocolates in a more exclusive, smaller property bathed in local traditions.
You’ll surely fall in love with the village of Saint Emilion, classed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Well deserving of placement on this prestigious list, the variety of local architecture and culture is amazing. Your chauffeur/guide speaks English and knows the area by heart, allowing you to sit back and give in to the lure of the region.
This is a day tour which will charm your eyes, nose and palette, truly seducing all of your senses.
