This tour was really amazing! Emmanuel, our guide, is local from Bordeaux and he was extremely knowledgeable of local specialities and of course wine. He drove us to the village of Saint-Émilion where we first visited an organic vineyard and we had the opportunity to learn about organic winemaking in Bordeaux . There, our main guide was the owner of the vineyard , a very kind lady who belongs to a family with eleven generations of experience in the winemaking art. After the explanation of the process and after tasting some of the grapes from the vines, we end with a wine-tasting activity where three different and extremely good Bordeaux wines were involved. Once our visit to the vineyard was finished, we then visited the Saint-Émilion where Emmanuel walked us through this medieval UNESCO World Heritage Site while telling us its history. In summary, this tour is strongly recommended for anyone visiting Bordeaux with a very nice, kind and knowledgeable guide as Emmanuel.

There were only 4 of us on the tour and our driver Emmanuel who is from Bordeaux was a fabulous host and of course very knowledgeable about the area, it’s surrounds and of course wine tasting. He gave us a walking tour of the beautiful village of saint-emillion and purchased some local traditional macaroon for us to sample whilst on the walk. We also visited one winery in the region and the host was also excellent. We learnt so much about the wine making process and sampled their beautiful wine while sitting outside in the lovely peaceful gardens. Really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it.
