Discover the breathtaking environment of Saint-Émilion, the oldest wine region in Bordeaux. A UNESCO world heritage site, the area itself is full of fairytale castles, villages lost in time and, of course, fine wine.
Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux, along with Medoc, Graves and Pomerol. As in Pomerol and the other appellations on the right bank of the Gironde, the primary grape varieties used are the Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Caberet Sauvignon used by some chateaux.
In addition to visiting magnificent chateaux and fine wine tasting, you will explore the fascinating medieval streets of Saint-Émilion itself, which are surrounded by remains of 12-century ramparts and a church dug out of a cliff. For lunch, enjoy fresh local dishes and perfect wine pairings.
