Sample some of the fine wines for which France is famous with this private full-day Route des Châteaux wine tasting tour in St-Emilion from Bordeaux.
Travel through the rolling vineyards of rural Bordeaux to St-Emilion, deep in the heart of France’s winemaking country. The fertile, sun-soaked soil outside Bordeaux offers ideal growing conditions, and the region has been producing wine for centuries.
Your private wine tour will take you on a journey into the countryside to discover Bordeaux appellations such as Pomerol, Lalande de Pomerol and Fronsac, each famous for the delicate and fruity wine they produce. Learn about the region’s winemaking heritage and gain insight into the various châteaux in Saint-Emilion.
You'll visit two vineyards in Saint-Emilion and learn about the age-old processes that the grapes go through in their journey from soil to barrel and bottle.
Surrounded by beautiful châteaux and row upon row of grape-laden vines, enjoy a refreshing apéritif and light snack of local delicacies. Afterwards, enjoy a guided tour through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of St-Emilion, where pretty Romanesque churches tower over narrow, cobbled streets.
Please note: If there are any chateaux you specifically want to visit for a wine tasting, feel free to ask your private guide if they can be included in your tour.
