very interesting excursion into a very fascinating land of wine. saint Emilion is a very charming town, and the whole travel was worth the expense. The guide and the staff at the Chateaux were extremely professional , and it is evident that they are very passionate about their work. we learned many interesting things about the process of wine treatment and degustation, and we could not avoid buying a few bottles for ourselvbes after the trip was finished.

What an incredible tour, we went to two very unique wineries that we really appreciated. They do not just take you to overblown mass producers, they take you to visit a very nice selection of producers. Lastly, the tour around Saint Emilion was really fun and our guide made it super interesting. Our guide was incredible from start to finish. We live in France and have been on many, many wine tours around the country, so we know how they go...this one was fantastic and among the best we’ve experienced. Perfect length also, not too short and not too long, just perfect.

Well organised and friendly host. Estelle (I think) was informative and really friendly. Went to 2 chateaux. 1st very commercial and incredibly pretty, high end. Expensive wine. Tasted 2. This is what disappointed me, I believe in you get what you pay for. But after a quick internet search for the same wine, you could buy it much cheaper (more than 3 times cheaper). So we didn’t buy any. 2nd chateaux was actually 2 in 1. A traditional way of wine making and an ultra modern way. Wine here was really nice. We tried 3 wines with some cheese, sausage and chocolate. It really was a taste sensation. We ended up spending a small fortune (for us) here. The host here was funny, informative and really friendly.
