Our guide Yan was both knowledgeable and passionate about the winelands and the wine traditions. Our first stop was Chateaux Haute Sarpe where we were escorted through the yards (stopping to see the oldest pub in St Emilion) to the ageing cellar. After we’d learned about the process of bottling, ageing, and all the requirements to meet the Grand Cru Classe label we were taken to St Emilion to do a wine tasting in a local wine boutique. Then we were guided through the town with Yan enlightening us on the history and geography of the surrounding area. The second chateaux was an altogether more modern one where we tasted wine made according to modern methods (including ageing the wine in terra cotta vats - which is an age old tradition!!). Then back to Bordeaux with Yan chatting knowledgeably all the way about the area, wine, tradition and anything that came up. What a fabulous experience!!

This was an interesting tour of wineries and the region. We stopped at 2 wineries and did one tasting at a local wine shop. The region is absolutely beautiful and our tour guide was remarkable. I wish we would have stayed here for a day or two. Go to Saint-Emilion where there are family owned wineries, history, and fabulous wine.

The tour was well planned and led by a very personable and knowledgeable guide who also drove the comfortable minibus. There is no better way of getting to know this rich wine region for the first time. @Getyourguide.de : some information about the tour I reserved was not correct: the language was English and not French; there was no mask requirement. The other tour guests had received correct information.
