Summary

Depart for a day in the Saint-Emilion wine region. This wine tour is a perfect introduction to both the wines of the right bank and to the charming village of Saint Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. Your tour will include the visits & tastings in 3 carefully selected Classified Growth Chateaus (wineries) known for the quality of the wine they craft as well as a walking tour of the village with your guide.

Follow your guide on an Exclusive wine tour experience dedicated to the wine region known as the right bank! Today you will be the hosts of unique Chateaus, all visits being privatized for our small group.

Your main destination will be the Saint Emilion wine producing appellation where Merlot is the predominant grape variety. At first, enjoy a private visit and wine tasting in classified growth Chateau de Ferrand. Here not only will you discover and understand the work, chemistry & technical complexity involved in the wine making process, you will also be introduced to special tasting with wine taken directly from the Oak Barrel.

Then, discover the village of Saint Emilion and enjoy a unique private guided tour of the underground monuments of the village including the fascinating monolithic church and hermitage. After some free time for lunch and personal discovery, depart for 1st Classified Growth Chateau Beauséjour Bécot. After the visit of the installations and of the underground quarries, participate in a wine tasting session of these fabulous wines paired with a local delicacy, the macarons of Saint Emilion.
