What You Can Expect

Saint-Emilion Day Trip from Bordeaux

Small Group Bordeaux UNESCO and St Emilion by minivan

Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a 45-minute walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

This tour was fantastic. Beautiful sites, great chateaus and our tour guide, Simon, was simply awesome. Great balance between sightseeing, learning the wine making process, and getting to enjoy the process of wine tasting. Simon was very knowledgeable, friendly, and made the tour extremely enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the wine making in the region. I learned a lot!!
The 3 vineyards we went to were very different, which was great and meant there wasn't too much repetition between them.
The medieval town of St Emillion is lovely. the only challenge the day I was there was that there were some cruise ship tour groups there. And also many of the less touristy restaurants were closing about the time our second wine tasting was ending so it was a bit difficult to find a restaurant for lunch.
I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learn about the wines of this region mainly merlot grapes, I learned

Fantastic trip!!!!! Guide was very entertained me and friendly. The stops on this tour are amazing and the day is just log enough. One warning- if you purchase wine, shipping to the US was very problematic when purchased in St-Emilion at the shop. Might want to carry home.

This was a perfect way to spend one day in Bordeaux. The group size was just right 8 for everyone to taste without rushing. Each place we stopped gave us a different insight some aspect of growing grapes, making wine, tasting wine, from traditional to modern practices, from caverns to hi-tech. I enjoyed comparing the vintages! The village of Saint-Emilion is a great place to visit, especially since the weather was so good.
