Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

Relaxing day learning about wine

Charles was an excellent guide. We visited there chateaus and did tastings at each, and we also had two hours in St. Emilion to spend as we pleased. Charles equipped us with maps and lots of restaurant recommendations. For a fall day tour I was pleasantly surprised by what a job he did keeping us an schedule. The bonus is at the end of the tour I wasn’t exhausted at all and still had plenty of energy to enjoy my evening.

Must Visit outside Paris
Frances_C
, Jun 2022
We booked this day trip from Paris and took the 2-hour TGV train ride at 6:07am to get on time in Bordeaux meeting point. Our tour guide Hugo is like a wine guru and carries informative yet witty conversations. He’s like someone you would really want to drink with and have meaningful chats about anything under the sun. We were small group of 8 and everyone seem to get along well. We had enough time to wander around the magnificent Saint Emilion. Wine tasting was really enjoyable with no pressure at all to purchase, but you would regret if you don’t because the cellar doors that we visited offer the best price of these top notch wines. Highly recommend this tour and will get you back to Paris on time.

Pleasant Day in the Wine Country

We enjoyed our tour of the Saint Emilion area and the wine tasting. The guide, however, was relatively new and didn't know his way around. As a result we experienced some delays in reaching our destinations. In addition, the consensus of the group (there were 6 of us) was that the wine at two of the three chateaus we visited was a bit disappointing.

The countryside was stunning and each winery offered a different take on wine. The visit to the city itself was very informative. Our tour guide was so fun and she helped us with Bordeaux restaurant recommendations. I would highly recommend this tour.

A Perfect Day in St. Emilion!

Angie was our guide for the day. She did n excellent job of getting us to St. Emilion while sharing some of the history of the region as giving us lots of information about the wine making process. Her timing was perfect as we visited 3 wineries and had time for a leisurely lunch in the town square.

Great tour with Emily!

Emily was an excellent tour guide: funny, informed, and with great lunch recommendations. The tour overall was very interesting and a great way to see the region (and try a lot of wine!). While I do wish that we had visited a second more traditional chateau instead of the biodynamic vineyard as our third stop, the overall experience was excellent and well-worth the time!

Excellent day trip with Karim to Saint-Émilion

My full day tour to Saint-Émilion was a 11/10! Karim was a charismatic, funny, energetic, super knowledgeable and very helpful tour guide who was full of information, tips and knowledge about wine and the Bordeaux region in general. I highly, highly recommend doing this day tour (especially with Karim). I had a wonderful time and am leaving Bordeaux with much more information and great wine suggestions than I came with :)

Hugo was a brilliant tour guide. Very knowledgable and friendly the whole day through. Everything was done in a relaxed way, and the wineries we visited on the day were welcoming and passed on some local knowledge. Would really recommend this to anyone who wants to get to see some of Saint Emilion, or would like to understand how wine is produced.

Bonjour Liam_D, It's nice to read how much you enjoyed your experience in Saint-Emilion with Ugo, thank you for sharing your feedback with us and other travellers. Indeed, Ugo is very friendly and it is great to learn about wine making process in a relaxed way. We look forward to welcoming you again in France very soon! Best Carole from Ophorus team
