What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips


I highly recommend you have a hard copy of your reservations, as it makes asking questions easier since it can be a bit chaotic.
If you can take the time, I highly recommend the full day tour so that you have some time to explore St. Emilion and visit more wineries.
You are given a perfect amount of time in the city as well, which is not always the case with these types of tours.

Great day of tasting Bordeaux wines
Beverly_W, Aug 2022
Great Day visiting the Bordeaux wine region and the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. Our tour guide, Justine, was so knowledgeable about the wine region and a fun addition to our group of eight. We visited three very different wineries giving us a good knowledge of working vineyards and biodynamic wines; and the 5 classifications of Bordeaux wine, etc. The town of Saint-Emilion was equally interesting and one must visit the Collegiate church and its cloister. We had a great day and great tastings of Bordeaux's finest!

Our guide, Rudolphe, was excellent. He used a head gear audio amplifier during our van trip to St Emilion wine country in Bordeaux, France. He gave us lots if info on wine making in the area, making it so interesting due to his outstanding personality.
Great Day Trip :)
JUAN_T, Aug 2022
Julie was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and engaging. St Emilion was beautiful - definitely worth a full day, maybe an overnight stay ;)
Great Full day trip

Ilia was fantastic. He did a great job with introducing us to Bordeaux. He is clearly passionate and very knowledgeable about Bordeaux wines. He even gave some great recommendations for restaurants and wine bars. Thanks, Ilia!
This is the tour you want to take
Parker_G, Jul 2022
I’ve been on other tours to St Emilion that are more time on the bus than tasting and just generally not fun. We absolutely LOVED THIS TOUR! The tour van was air conditioned and fit us four couples perfectly. We went to two Grand Cru vineyards in St Emilion and one in Pomerol, with a stop at the St Emilion town for lunch in between. We went to one of the restaurants our tour guide recommended and we had a pleasant meal. We were never rushed, we had a very pleasant time, and our guide Girard was helpful, fun, and very nice! We were hesitant about the tour price but we would happily pay it again. This is the tour you want to take!!

The Guide who was a trained sommelier was very competent and service minded. On the way back to Bordeaux he tested our skills in terms of scent with a professional kit. Great fun. Top marks🇫🇷🌞🇫🇷
A day to remember
Brandon_S, Jul 2022
An amazing tour experience. Everything lived up to and surpassed the billing. Our guide, Chilos, was kind, funny, and thoughtful. The size of the group was ideal and very relaxed. The hosts at the wineries were excellent and knowledgeable about their product and the process for wine production. Easy choice to book this tour.
Great experience.

Very fun day trip around the rolling land of st. Emilion with a great selection of wineries to try. We stopped at 3 separate wineries, two of which provided a great tour experience followed by tastings and one final stop where we just did a tasting. The mid day stop in Saint Emilion is quite spectacular as well.

Best trip so far. Our guide Camille is knowledgeable and full of energy and fun. And the introduction by the three wineries visited were very informative and carried by people who are passionate about wine making. We were very happy and only wish the trip could be longer!
Great
Kristina_E, Jul 2022
Julie our tour guide was great and explained everything well. It's a good day to visit vineyards and get to know wine making first hand. I just wished we had more time in St. Emilion town itself.
Nice and relaxing day
TszShan_W, Jul 2022

Very good trip with our excellent guide Luigi, who is very knowledgeable in wines, and passes on interesting information in a very easygoing and entertaining fashion. All three chateaux were welcoming and provided super tastings, it was a great day out!

Stan was very friendly, safe driver, kept us entertained. We enjoyed guessing the movie themes on the ride back.
A must do!
Rachel_W, Jun 2022
A fantastic day. Olivier was an excellent guide/host. It was great to go around the different vineyards and we really enjoyed having the free time to explore Saint-Emilion on our own before meeting up with the rest of the group for a guided tour around the town. Would definitely recommend!
Exceeded expectations
