Following a morning pickup from your hotel in Bordeaux, meet your guide and hop into your private vehicle for the journey to St-Emilion, deep in the heart of Frances winemaking country.

On arrival in St-Emilion, visit three wine estates with your guide and learn of the age-old processes that the grapes go through in their journey from soil to barrel and bottle. If there are any castles you specifically want to visit, feel free to ask your private guide if they can be included in your tour.

Surrounded by beautiful castles and row upon row of grape-laden vines, enjoy a refreshing apritif and light snack of delicacies from the local markets. Afterward, follow your guide on a tour through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of St-Emilion, where pretty Romanesque churches tower over narrow, cobbled streets.

In the afternoon, enjoy a blending session in a Bordeaux tasting room. Savor a few samples, and then blend them to your taste to produce your own wine.
