We did the tour in English and got great insight into winemaking at two wineries - one more traditional and one modern. The lady who gave us the tour was really very friendly and competently answered all the questions that came up during the tour. The wine tasting at the end was of course a highlight and you could try to taste what was explained before (e.g. maturation in the new oak barrel) from the wines. For example, dark chocolate was also offered with the wine, which one could taste together with the wine in order to experience how the flavors complement each other. As we didn't have a car, we walked from the St Emilion train station to the château - a nice but somewhat long walk along through the beautiful wine landscape with its many wineries, but unfortunately along the gravel country road without a footpath. But that was the only drawback

I knew nothing about wine and after this experience, I was able to understand all the work put in place by its professionals. I even bought a book following this activity in order to deepen my knowledge. Thank you to the whole team for this good time and this sharing.

Very good visit, the quality of the answers asked were very good and adapted to the public, the tasting was pleasant and enriching, the crechendo effect of the wines tasted left the palate in agitation and in reflection, we could not buy on the spot because by motorbike , but we will order on the net from them
