We wanted a combination tour. One that would cover the history of St. Emillion and wine tasting in this AOC. Alexandra delivered excellently against that objective. She was able to arrange that we were the first your of the underground monuments. Which meant that not only were there no other groups to slow our progress, we had to unlock the doors ourselves, a unique experience with the very old locks. Her knowledge and experience made for a very enjoyable day.
