Meet your guide and climb into an air-conditioned minivan to begin your half-day trip to Saint-Emilion from Bordeaux. Enjoy the scenery out the windows as you travel to this beautiful town, named for an 8th-century Breton monk. It was his followers who first began growing grapes and making wine in this area, now one of the most famous wine-growing regions in the world.
Stop along the way to Saint-Emilion at a grand cru winery to sample some of the local wines and see the beautiful chateau.
Join your guide for a 45-minute walking tour of Saint-Emilion, learning more about this historic village, and then enjoy free time to explore the town at your leisure — including any shopping you might want to do and time to get some lunch (own expense). If you haven’t had enough of the region’s famous wine, you can also stop into one of the many wine cellars in Saint-Emilion for another wine tasting before climbing back into the minivan for the return trip to Bordeaux.
