This day tour is ideal for those who are looking for a low-cost and simple introduction to Bordeaux. You will meet your English-speaking driver/guide at a central departure point in the city centre for a full day transported and guided tour of the UNESCO Classified appellation of Saint-Emilion and neighbouring Pomerol. You will discover the singularities of the softer Bordeaux wines, predominantly made from the Merlot grape. On this tour you will visit three Châteaux, learning all about the fascinating wine-making process from press to bottle. Each tour will conclude with one or two tastings of the Château’s wine. This is a small group tour and each Château that you visit will be a Cru Classified estate. You will have free time for lunch on the tour, and your guide will be more than happy to make recommendations depending on how hungry you are feeling on the day.

Thank you all at Grape Escapes for a wonderful break with friends that I'm sure I will remember for a long time. Awesome! We all had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed every minute, Bordeaux is a beautiful city with some wonderful vineyards, if only we could have stayed longer! I would and will be recommending your company to anyone that asks!
