Go off to explore the lovely medieval village of Saint-Emilion (Unesco World Heritage site) and visit two wineries (a top winery Grand Cru Classé and a family-run estate Grand Cru) during a 5.30 hours guided tour with me, a fun & knowledgeable local guide speaking English. Your tour includes 4 wines tasting minimum and a French aperitif (cheese, cured meat & crackers...). The tour starts at 12.30 am. I will meet you in « Place Stalingrad » between "LCL Bank" and "Wasabi Café" at 12.20 am. At each winery, you will have an introduction about the history of the estate, then you will visit the technical installations, ending with an explanation about the oak barrels and the aging process. The tour will end with a commented tasting of the Château wines. I will drive through the vineyard of Saint-Emilion and we will visit the famous medieval village dating from the Middle Age. We will be back in Bordeaux at 6 p.m (+/- 15 minutes). The wine tours are in English & French. Make sure to have lunch before ! (only small portions of cheese, cured meat & crackers will be served at the first winery). (If you have booked a private tour, I can pick you up from your place of residence)
