Saint Emillion Winery Tour
Nikhil Samani 09/02/2023
The driver was very knowledgeable regarding the wine and information about Saint Emillion. Saint Emillion was beautiful to see however it requires more than just the one hour (or less) than we had to enjoy it as the time that we travelled meant a stop for lunch would have been good. It was great that the driver also sticks by your side (with exception for 15 minutes) whilst going around Saint Emillion however presumably that was due to time restraints. The wine was nice too. However felt like we were only offered small amounts of each. If the Chateu could somehow make it a little more exciting maybe party vibe that would improve things as personally whilst it was interesting listening about the wine I kind of felt like it was something I could have read about on the internet. The first chateau only offered some wine but the second chateau offered some nibbles too which was required with the wine especially in the hot weather. All in all a good day out if you are inexperienced of winery tours. The next time would hire a car and drive out there.
