- Day trip (destination A to B)
- Lunch included
- Led by a local guide

Arrive in the St-Emilion AOC (Appellation d'origine contrôlée), a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed wine region. One of the principal red wine areas of the Bordeaux wine region, St-Emilion is known for its blended grape varieties, particularly merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.
Your first stop is a classified growth château — Château Figeac, Château Beau-Sejour Becot or Château Canon — where you’ll take a tour of the cellar to learn about the winemaking process and enjoy a tasting of the château’s finest wines.
Next, head to Château Haute-Sarpe. Admire a beautiful view of the vineyards, visit the wine cellar, and taste the estate's elite Grand Cru wines before sitting down to a lovely buffet lunch.
You’ll spend the afternoon exploring the village of St-Emilion itself, which dates back to the 8th century and is full of fascinating medieval history. Your guide will take you to the remarkable underground monuments and then give you free time to discover the town’s wine shops, cafés and boutiques on your own.
Return to Bordeaux around 5:30pm.

Very informative and pleasant. The St Emilion Chateaus are not as grand as the Medoc ones, but they are charming nonetheless. A beautiful location and delicious lunch. Well done.

The tour was excellent. There was lots of information from each vineyard without too much redundancy. The lunch was great with lots of wine! The tour through the underground church in St Emilion was impressive, and the free time in town to explore was nice.
