Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

Wine lover's tour
Rick
, Mar. 2020
This is a tour that you can't miss if you are a wine lover. I visited many wineries over the world (e.g., Rhone valley, Burgundy, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, Niagara on the lake, Napa Valley, Douro valley in Porto, Hokkaido in Japan, etc...). This is one of the most enjoyable tours. The tour guide Luigi is incredible. He is so knowledgeable in wine and accommodating. I made a remark on my booking saying that I wanted to visit Petrus. The 1st stop we went was Ch Petrus. He allowed ample time for is to take pictures and experience the terroir. He also stopped us by in many super famous chateau in Pomerol (e.g., Petrus, Le Pin) and Saint Emilion (e.g., Ausone, Pavie). This tour took us to a few chateau producing wine with special characters for tasting, which are not very commonly seen or available in the market. I felt no pressure to buy their wine after tasting but just felt being invited to appreciate their wines. The most exciting part was that he took me to taste vintage Armagnac 1977 and 1997 at a super good rate that I can never find in Hong Kong. We stopped at a very historical town to have a lunch there, which is just next to Ch Ausone. Lots of choices there and Luigi made very good recommendations for us..Most of all, the price of the lunch was very reasonable, given the quality of food. Having a glass of Saint Emilion with a dish of a Confit de Canard right in the middle of a medieval town, it was an amazing experience. On our way back, he arranged a smelling test for us to guess the food by smelling the essence oils. Although I have played this game for many times, I still found it very enjoyable hosted by Luigi. The only problem is that time is too short to enjoy so many things in a day. If you are a true wine lover (not a wine label lover) and have some background knowledge with wine, and you don't really want to spend a lot of money, you will find this tour amusing. Go with Luigi.

All you ever wanted to know about right-bank wines.

The tour was a wonderful experience and the guide, Emily, was wonderful, as well. The tour involved three different wineries featuring very different wines and terroir and a short tour of St. Emilion and time to walk around the town and have lunch on our own. The guides at each of the wineries were also very personable and knowledgeable and the owner of one of the wineries gave the tour at our last stop.

We had a fantastic day out in the vineyards. The ones we visited as part of the tour were fantastic with really friendly hosts. Karin was a fantastic guide. Above all it was a great day out learning about winemaking and drinking plenty of wine.

Our tour guide Jerome was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and very engaging. He told us about the history of Bordeaux, information about the wineries, St. Emilion, insight into the wines and categories and kept us on schedule. This tour was the highlight of my weekend in Bordeaux. I would highly recommend this tour and Jerome as a guide. I wish I could have done another tour with him! I can't speak more highly of the experience!

Saint-Emilion Day Trip from Bordeaux

Not what I expected - the first stop in Pomerol was, Chateau de Sales. They were in the throes of harvest, so we got to see the destemming process, and the barrel room which were interesting. We sampled two of their wines, then we were off to St. Emillion. We visited Chateau Gaudet , which was in the middle of town. We got some history about the winemaker and the family before going down to the cellars where bottles of wine were quite old and toured a small portion of the area. We were then whisked down the street to a wine shop that sold many different vintners wines. We sampled about seven different wines, while getting some education on the different varietals we tried. After sampling, we had about 2 hours to get lunch and explore the town of St. Emillion, which was very enjoyable. The last stop was not at all memorable and was basically a tasting room.

Highlight of my trip! - Outstanding tour guide
Donna L
, Nov. 2019
I am a solo traveler and rely upon tours to stay connected with people while exploring new places. I had such a wonderful day enhanced by the knowledge, experience and guidance of my tour guide Luigi. We visited 3 Chateaus and although there was a small glitch at one of them, Luigi handled it like a true professional. I only wish I had a little more time to spend in the town for shopping. However, now I have a reason to return and spend more time there. I will be back. Donna
