I am avid wine taster and buyer. I was looking forward to my two promised tastes at each chateau in order to make that many purchases. Chateau Laniote had 5-6 vintages on their wine list but chose to pour only one. When queried, he said he was new to the tour circuit and thats all he had. Our guide tried to make up for it by pouring a Medoc later a region we werent visiting...not a wine I could buy.
Further, the description of this tour also mentioned instruction on tasting techniques, which consisted of being told to close my eyes and name the smells. There is so much more to it than that!
Lastly, our guide was a Certified Wine Educator CWE who only educated when prompted. The 40-minute ride in each direction couldve been used to enhance the entire process.
Great wine tasting tour of small family owned and larger wineries. Guide was very knowledgeable. Although, he spoke Spanish a lot because there was a Spanish couple but more English speaking group got annoyed.
We met our guide at the Tourist Info Centre and hopped on a minibus with about 10 other people. We visited three wineries and had tours and informative sessions with each of the local winery guides, followed by generous tastings. After the second tasting we had free time in beautiful St Emilio, enough time to have lunch and look at the main sights. The third winery had lovely views over the vines from the tasting room. Our guide was very nice.
This tour was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Worth it to see some of the countryside surrounding Bordeaux. The 2 wineries visited were both stunning but the highlight was the town of St Emilion. Our guide, Remi, was super knowledgeable of both wine and history. Highly recommend.
Our tour was a focus on the sights and tastes of the St Emilion wine region near to the beautiful city of Bordeaux. Everything about the day tour was first class the guide, transport, sightseeing and the wine tasting. For people who have a strong interest in learning about the best in French wines this tour is a must small tour group, gorgeous vineyards and chateaux and an easy and friendly approach to the tastings of the best vintagest with great food also supplied.....no skimping there at all.
After a fantastic day touring and tasting the best French wines in the St Emilion area near to Bordeaux, we decided to follow it up the following day with another tour of vineyards and wineries this time in the Medoc area. We were certainly not disappointed and once again we had a memorable experience provided by friendly and knowledgeable guides and the owners and winemakers who happily opened up their facilities, processes and gorgeous chateaux to us. The tour gave us the ability to compare and contrast the wine styles and tastes in the Medoc with those in St Emilion which we had experienced the previous day. We can't recommend these tours highly enough and, whether you just want to experience the best in French wine and food accompaniments, or you are serious about your choice of wines and want to taste the best, this may well be the tour for you.
