Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

We had such a wonderful time on our all-day tour with Emily! She was funny, super knowledgeable, and there was never a dull moment with her - we even played a fun game on the way back to the city. Saint Emilion was absolutely gorgeous and we visited 3 wineries, each with a kind and knowledgeable guide. We were expecting cheap pours lol but were pleasantly surprised with the tastings. Very happy that we chose this tour and would definitely recommend - voilà!

Our tour guide, Luigi, brought the town and chateaus to life. With his masters in history and being a sommelier we got the best of both worlds on this wine tour to Saint Emilion. He helped bring both the village and wineries to life. The small family owned chateau we visited was fantastic.

Hubert our guide was fantastic. All the winery guides were also great. Viator went out of their way to accommodate us when we got lost on our way to meet our tour and helped us find our tour in St Emilion. Great, picturesque town, great tour, good wines and a scrumptious French lunch.
