Visit the beautiful Saint-Emilion and the world-famous wineries of the region with our wine-expert guide. We will organize a customized private tour to the Saint-Emilion wine region just for your group the way you like. You will be able to visit authentic family-owned wineries and the top chateaux of the region. We are flexible in terms of tours timing and length.
Saint-Emilion is very picturesque, with some rolling hills and a UNESCO heritage Medieval village of Saint-Emilion. We can visit two wineries in the morning with tastings of 2-3 wines at each. You can then have lunch at a nice restaurant in the vineyards or in the village of Saint-Emilion. After lunch, we can go for a third visit in the area. Alternatively, you can stay in the village, visit underground quarries with sparkling wine production, visit historic monuments and enjoy shopping, Saint-Emilion wines are generally a blend of Merlot and Cab Franc.
Although this tour was originally booked with Viator, if I had not been able to communicate directly with Polina concerning the chateaux visits, I would have cancelled through the frustration dealing with Viator, which proved to be completely ineffective and disinterested in my tour after I had paid.
Polina manages her own tour company (Red square wines) and was extremely diligent and helpful. She has an extensive background in the wine business and personal contacts with some of the chateaux which facilitated a personal approach by the chateaux to the tours and degustation, adding greatly to the experience.
I will definitely contact Polina again to arrange my next tour.
Hello, thank you very much for taking time to write the review. It was a pleasure to host you in Bordeaux and I am happy you enjoyed the tour despite the rain. Again, I am sorry about your booking troubles with Viator. I am glad you finally contacted me directly through the website, I find it easier too in terms of communication. Hope to see you in Bordeaux again. We still have other wine regions to explore. Kind regards, Polina
