If you choose to visit Saint-Emilion, you will discover the singularities of the softer wines, predominantly made from the Merlot grape. Just as with the Médoc tour, you will also visit three Châteaux.
During the day, you will learn all about the fascinating winemaking process from press to bottle, and each tour will conclude with a tasting of the Château’s wine. Each Château that you visit will be a Cru Classified estate.
You will have free time for lunch on the tour, and your guide will be more than happy to make recommendations depending on how hungry you are feeling on the day.
In the evening a three-course gourmet dinner will be served in a premium city centre restaurant. Your dinner will be accompanied by half a bottle of wine, water and tea or coffee.
 
Day 3:
Enjoy a tour of whichever appellation you didn’t visit on Day 2, thus ensuring that you have the opportunity to discover both Saint-Emilion and the Médoc, obtaining a breadth of knowledge and experience when it comes to Bordeaux wines.
 
Day 4:
After a leisurely breakfast, you will check out of the hotel.
 
Please note: If you wish, you can stay for just a 3-day break, which would not include Day 3 on the itinerary. Please get in touch here to arrange this.
