Saint-Émilion, about 20 miles north of Bordeaux, is where people actually go when they say they’re going wine tasting in Bordeaux. And it’s where you should go, too, the next time you go to France. Here’s why:
First, there is the history: The entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back to prehistoric times, and also includes Roman-era vineyards and a monolithic church carved from a single block of limestone. The sights of Saint-Émilion are most definitely worth a stroll after a morning visiting wineries.
