Guide Luigi ist auch ausgebildeter Sommelier und konnte sachkundig und kurzweilig unterhalten. Inclusive Sensorikkurs auf der Heimfahrt????

Our tour guide Emily was excellent. Great knowledge combined with her delightful sense of humour. She is a true Bordeaux lover. We loved the first vineyard more than the second one in bunker. More history and better presentation, but that’s a subjective opinion.
Leisurely, enjoyable discovery.

Overall, a wonderful day. Good weather helps. Chateaux selected were very clean, well-maintained, and yet contained historic elements. Indoor areas were easy to navigate and the staff were enormously helpful. The pace wasn't too brisk and there was always plenty of time to ask questions. Complimentary souvenirs were a nice touch. Downsides would be the van. It was a bit tight, but then cars in France don't really have a rep as being roomy. The choice of vintages was a bit thin, I thought there might be more available. Super plus was our guide Julie who was very patient, full of fun facts, prompt, and very organized.
Very informative wine tour

While we believed we have decent level of knowledge about wine making, we still enjoy the tour. Their program of three wineries (two in morning, one after lunch) is well constructed. We had enough time to see each winery and wine tasting along with reasonable time to recover our tongue. The choice of wineries is decent and reasonable. The staff at each winery has sufficient knowledge to explain and answer the questions. They can explain the uniqueness of Saint-Emilion which makes us some surprises. Moreover, explain about background of winery like changes in ownership is quite interesting. A good thing is none pushes to sell their wine. It is very comfortable. The guide has a sense of humor along with some respect to his customers. His knowledge about wine making is also super. The car is clean and no complain at all. We cannot find any point we did not like. One thing I can recommend is providing a sheet of summary about each winery after the tour would be more helpful.

It was good, but your own time in the village is too short.
Arto Makinen 07/17/2019
We like wine estate visit and tasting. Village is very nice, but as i mentioned, there is too short time to walking around. I would recommend this offer.
