Discover St Emilion wines and UNESCO Heritage


After a pick-up in Bordeaux, 40 minutes drive to Saint Emilion.

Let yourself be guided through the narrow and steep streets of this wonderful medieval village and discover that Saint Emilion is much more than wine!

I will take you to the mysterious underground monuments which are the craddle of local history. Follow me on the footsteps of the pilgrims and enter the largest monolithic church in Europe!

Then we will drive to a familial local wine estate for a visit and a wine tasting before driving back to Bordeaux.

The order of the visit can be changed depending on partners availibilities

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great afternoon tour with Marie. Leaving at 1:30 meant no traffic issues and we took in two premiere grand cru vineyards and tastings as well as a tour of the beautiful underground sites at St. Emillion. The tasting at Beau Sejour Becot included tasting the unfermented and partially fermented Merlot. We missed the crowds from 2 cruise ships in Bordeaux who had large by doing a later tour. Marie carried on a lively conversation, and was a font of new knowledge we had nor heard on other tours
