Itinerary
Pass By:  
Chateau Soutard
For your first visit, you will stop at an elegant Classified Growth, with a impeccable architecture. A hamlet in Saint Emilion bears its name, revealing the long History of this prestigious estate. After learning how to distinguish different grape varieties by comparing their leaves, you will stroll inside the recently restored vat house to learn about the secrets of their wines… before enjoying a tasting of 2 of them. The lunch will take place in the lovely kitchen garden of the chateau, in the oldest part of the estate from 16th century. After lunch, you will have the time to wander in the aromatic garden, taking in the view or even just enjoying the moment.
Duration: 120 Minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Chateau La Gaffeliere
Your next visit of a family-run First Classified Growth estate, of the appellation Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Located on the best sun-exposed slopes of the Saint Emilion limestone plateau. This estate has belonged to the same family for the past 300 years. The richness of their cabernet franc does justice to their worldwide fame. We will finish by an extensive tasting of minimum 4 wines in a wine shop in the village.
Duration: 60 Minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Office de Tourisme du Grand Saint-Emilionnais
Travel through time now with a guided visit of Saint Emilion, a one of kind medieval village. You will learn all about this UNESCO World Heritage site while admiring the most gorgeous landscapes of the region.
Duration: 60 Minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Chateau Franc Mayne
Our last stop of the day will take us deep into the heart of Saint Emilion, literally. You will have the privilege to explore its caverns at length where over 10 centuries these caves were quarries which supplied the stone to construct the chateaus and many buildings in Bordeaux. These limestone caves, of which there are over 250 kms are the charm of the St Emilion "terroir" as well as the key to the wines' flavour profile. You will learn everything there is to know about storing and ageing wines properly. After a visit of this Grand Cru, we will clink glasses and share a very French "aperitif" (snack before a meal) with your group to the end this fantastic day. You will taste at least 2 wines here.
Duration: 60 Minutes

If you are looking for a great, personalized, informative and one-of-a-kind experience, this is it. From the minute we met our guide, she was warm and joyful. Her knowledge and joy about wines was delivered in such a comfortable and inclusive way. Our picnic was just delightful and Saint Emilion was stunning. The vineyards we went to were very welcoming.
