It will take about one hour to arrive in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol and this will be a good opportunity to hear more about Bordeaux’s Wines while admiring the magnificent landscape as it passes by - known as the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region.
You'll start with the best of what Saint-Émilion and Pomerol region wines have to offer! Most of the great Saint-Emilion and Pomerol wine comes from the chateaux located on the côtes and the plateau. The côtes are the rich limestone hillsides that surround the picturesque village of St. Emilion, and the plateau has soils with limestone, clay, gravel, sand and iron deposits. The majority of the best Saint Emilion wine comes from the estates located on the plateau and the côtes right here and is why St. Emilion produces wines of richness, exotic textures and minerality.
The visit will be followed by a commented tasting that will take place in the village and that will include wines from the surrounding appellations such as Pomerol, Cotes de Castillon, Lussac, Montagne or Saint Georges Saint Emilion.
A protected Unesco World Heritage Site, we'll help you discover some of the village on foot and then you'll enjoy having some free time for personal exploration before we go to lunch.
The village takes its name from a Benedictine Monk who went by the name of Emilian. He lived in the area and is responsible for commencing the creation of the uniquely designed, limestone church at the heart of the village. Today, Saint-Emilion is also famous for its fascinating romanesque churches and the ruins which stretch all along the steep and narrow streets, all punctuated with cafés and boutiques of the terroir.
Lunch at your leisure.
Continuing with your discovery and experience, a third visit and wine tasting session takes place in a local winery of the Pomerol or Saint Emilion wine producing region. Here you'll encounter independent and passionate wine makers, with some hands-on learning about the living cultural heritage of Bordeaux’s wine: from grape varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, to geology of the soil, the climate, and most importantly, the art of the wine making itself in this unique appellation.
