    What to Expect
    You'll meet your guide around 8:50am at your central departure point in Bordeaux, where you'll then head out to explore the charming medieval village of Saint-Emilion and its vineyard (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The tour will start off with a visit in a Grand Cru winery for a visit and tasting.  During the tour, you will learn about the complete wine making process, what the French call the 'terroir' and most importantly, you will be able to taste the beautiful merlot wines of Saint-Emilion. The morning will end up with a guided walking tour through Saint-Emilion village, followed by a wine tasting in a local wine shop (optional).

    You'll travel back to Bordeaux just in time for lunch and for you to be able to enjoy the rest of your day. Ask your guide for lunch recommendations!

    I went solo on a wine tour with Bordeaux Wine Trails. The tour guide was wonderful. At first they go over the wine regions in France, and explain where we are going. After that, you get in a clean and air conditioned van to the winery! At the winery you will learn all about

    Our guide Cami was very knowledgeable and easily switched between French and English. It was a small group - only 8 of us, which made it quite special. I would have liked more time in Saint Émilion to look around. The wine was good too.

    Merci! Thank you very much for this lovely review. We are glad to see that you had a great time with us in our beautiful region and that you enjoyed the French way of doing wine tourism. Indeed, wine tastings in French wineries is all about quality, so it is usual to get two/three different wines and no more. Hope we can see you again the next time you drop by Bordeaux for more wine tasting. Warm regards
