Private Tour: St-Emilion Route des Châteaux Wine Tasting from Bordeaux

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Following a morning pickup from your hotel in Bordeaux, meet your guide and hop into your private vehicle for the journey to St-Emilion, deep in the heart of France’s winemaking country. The fertile, sun-soaked soil outside Bordeaux offers ideal growing conditions, and the region has been producing wine for centuries.
    Head out into the countryside and discover appellations such as Pomerol, Lalande de Pomerol and Fronsac — each famous for the delicate and fruity wine they produce. Listen as your guide talks about the region’s winemaking heritage and gain insight into the various castle estates around the area.
    On arrival in St-Emilion, visit three wine estates with your guide and learn of the age-old processes that the grapes go through in their journey from soil to barrel and bottle. If there are any castles you specifically want to visit, feel free to ask your private guide if they can be included in your tour.
    Surrounded by beautiful castles and row upon row of grape-laden vines, enjoy a refreshing apéritif and light snack of delicacies from the local markets. Afterward, follow your guide on a tour through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of St-Emilion, where pretty Romanesque churches tower over narrow, cobbled streets.
    In the afternoon, enjoy a blending session in a Bordeaux tasting room. Savor a few samples, and then blend them to your taste to produce your own wine.
    When your wine tasting comes to an end, hop back into your vehicle for the return journey to your Bordeaux hotel, where your St-Emilion castles tour will conclude.

    I thoroughly recommend spending that tiny bit more on a smaller tour. Our guide, Quentin, was very informative and knowledgeable. Saint Emilion is the perfect backdrop to a sunset and pretty much the perfect place to relax and drink wine. Bordovino tour was easily booked...More
