We have been on numerous wine tours and although we had a good guide who was knowledgeable, the tour was a tad arduous. They have a silly audio production in the limestone bowels that we couldn't wait until it was over. The wine was horrible and was so filled with tannins, we puckered and couldn't finish it. I would never... More

We experienced 6 wine tastings at 6 different vineyards on this 7 night Uniworld river cruise. This one was my favorite. They used a 60euro whole sale bottle of wine for the tasting and for the first time I could taste the difference between a good wine and a fine wine. underground cellar/caverns were fascinating ( they provide flashlights) and...

This stop was part of our Trafalgar 2013 summer Best of France Tour. It was nice to be at a vinyard and to take photos around the fields and inside the tunnel tour. Bring a sweater as it is cool down below. Enjoy the stories and just walking below the earth in the tunnels was just as fun as tasting... More

We visited the Chateau a few weeks back. The tour here is amazing...beautiful caves and a pretty good tour overall. We didn't care for the wine here but its a must visit in Saint-Emillion.

Found and booked this online and it would have been better if we didn't then have to collect the tickets from the St Emilion tourist office. There are separate tours in both French and English, this review covers the English tour. The tour provided us with an excellent view of how their wine was grown and produced together with a... More

We visited this winery and did the tasting and tour. It was impressive. The underground labyrinth of tunnels and quarries under the vineyard was fascinating. The history given by the chateau was extremely well done and informative. The whole St Emilion history is remarkable and the light and sound show below ground was a ten out of ten. Our guide... More

We were looking for a way to see the underground mines in Saint-Emilion without going for a full-fledged tour and/or see many vineyards. We were thus pleasantly surprised to have the opportunity to go for a Saint-Emilion wine tasting that included a visit of the vineyard then an underground multimedia video in the old mines. Our guide was excellent and... More

We had a really enjoyable and very informative wine tour with a charming lady called Stacie whose English was incredible. There is a great deal to learn not just about the chateau but the wine making and the lovely town of St Emilion and the tour is well worth it. The wine is very good too!

Admittedly, we didnt know much about Bordeaux wines or the winemaking process. Therefore, this English tour lasting about 75 minutes was a great start. Call and book the tour in advance (cost 12€ per person). They start in the vineyard, then show you the vats, barrel room and wine caves in the basement. You also get a nice history lesson... More

Great way to learn about the wines and the history of St. Emilion. Our guide Pierre was most knowledgeable. The wine is also worth tasting.
