About Rustic Vines
Rustic Vines operate fun and informative activities in the most beautiful city in the world. Well that's what we think. But we're not alone. Our wine-tours have been made famous due to our hard work in creating long lasting memories. You will taste a large selection of different wines, eat lots of speciality local cheese and of course share a lot of laughter. The tour is very much a great learning experience. It is our duty to help ease you into the deep sophisticated wine world of Bordeaux and ensure you get the best service from our knowledgeable guides and experience some of the very unique chateau's on offer. Our ebike tours are a great way to see St Emilion especially on our very comfortable high end electric bikes. The tours take between 4 and 7 hours which is a reflection of the knowledge we want to share, the flexibility we want in the programme and you to enjoy the biking experience.

Hi Ciara, Yes. For most tours depart from Bordeaux from our office in the centre of town. The only activity that doesn't is the half day electric bike tour.
