With this tour you will discover this diversity during an afternoon session every day in the tourist season. The destination is different every day* and each one has its own special charms!

 You will be welcomed by the château owner in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux & Côtes de Bourg, taste wines of all different colours in the Entre-Deux-Mers and delight in striding along the steep narrow streets of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. Furthermore, you cannot fail to be impressed by a cellar with 1,000 barrels in the Médoc!

 The tour includes a visit to two wine estates where you will learn about the winemaking process by discovering the vat room, the cellars with all the barrels, etc.. Each chateau offers a tasting of two wines. Your guide will remind you at this point that you first of all taste wine with your eyes and nose!

Saint-Émilion tour- great experience
Grace Miller 06/07/2019
Great tour, especially to the town of Saint-Émilion. Our tour guide Cristine was great giving lots of info during the journey as well as walking round. There was time enough to visit the church and have a wonder before going to the Chateau. Great experience, highly recommended. I would have liked maybe slightly more explanation during the wine tasting of the two different wines, what to expect etc. But overall an amazing location and good tour.

Sunday tour to St. Emilion
Kathleen Franzen 06/05/2019
Very well organized tour led by a knowledgeable guide who managed a large group efficiently and pleasantly. We rode on a comfortable bus to St. Emilion with descriptions by the guide as we traveled. After a short tour of the town that started with a intriguing tour of a cave church. We were given time to explore on our own and then met at a winery on the edge of St. Emilion. A staff member of the winery led us on a tour and the fascinating caves below the facility. All went smoothly. We would recommend this to all people able to navigate cobblestone streets and steep stone steps.

Disappointing
