What You Can Expect
This was a great full day trip. The guide was very good. The 2 chateau we went to were excellent, very informative and lovely wine. Full marks to Chateau Haute Sarpe, our guide here Philipe was so amusing, showing us around the chateau. Lovely views of the vineyards, loved the little nightclub they have called Glou Glou, imagine the fun they had there. At lunch, Philipe put on a jesters hat and we all had such a fantastic buffet lunch with some very nice wine. We then went on to Saint Emilion a lovely UNESCO Medieval village where we had a couple of hours free time. Highly recommend this full day trip.
The group was a little larger than we expected (about 30) but it didn't prove an issue. The guide was very pleasant and informative although listening to the information repeated in French can get a bit tiring by the end of the day. The smorgasbord lunch at the winery was superb, meat, duck, cheeses and salads. This washed down with the hosts great wines (we finished 5 bottles on our table of 8) was a real treat. The guided tour of St Emilion after lunch was interesting but a bit of a slog.........would recommend this to be moved to before lunch.
We appreciate wine but I wouldn't describe ourselves as experts and this tour was perfect for us. Very interesting and informative, but also fun. The buffet lunch was excellent. The coach was clean, comfortable and air conditioned Saint-Emilion is a beautiful village, definitely worth visting.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour. We had great guides explaining the history and the 'science' of wine making. To add to that there was a lovely variety of friendly people on the tour. The town of ST Emilion was incredibly picturesque. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
We have taken this tour before but did it again with our friends who had not been. The guide at the first Chateau was very knowledgeable and interesting although she had a challenge curtailing some of the behaviours of other party members who continuously "clicked" and chattered over her. Unfortunately our tour of the second Chateau was disappointing for us this time as the usual guide was preparing lunch and his replacement didn't speak English so our main tour guide had to interpret and translate. However the lunch provided was as good as we remembered and our friends enjoyed their experience, it was just us who were a little disappointed in comparison to our last visit where we enjoyed the attention of our previous host through the entire tour and all through lunch.
Wonderful way to spend a day with a knowledgable tour guide and welcoming Chateaus. The lunch we were served at HautSarpe was fantastic!
Another excellent tour, St. Emilion was amazing and lunch at Chateu Haute Sarpe was superb.
Excellent day, the wine tours are both interesting and delicious, the coach was comfortable, the guide excellent and very helpful with a lovely tour of the town and church. The lunch was fantastic, highly recommended.
Fabulous trip. Very interesting. Yummy lunch with wine. Love St Emilion. Would do it again.
one word- FABULOUS!! we were treated to a "gourmet" rustic wine makers luncheon at the chateau. The tour was very informative, and we were made to feel like we had been friends of the winemaker forever. DO NOT miss this tour when in Bordeaux- well worth close to the 100 euro's
