Meet your English speaking driver/guide 

In the morning, we will come and pick you up at your Hotel or Accommodation in Toulous. Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable, air conditioned vehicle and begin to make your way to the Graves & Sauternes wine producing regions.

Travel in a spacious Minivan 

Your private Bordeaux Day Trip in the Graves & Sauternes will take place in one of our very spacious Minivans. This vehicle can take up to 8 persons. Bottled water is also available in all our vehicles.

Depart from Toulouse and reach the Saint Emilion wine region

Starting in the city of Toulouse a 2 hours drive brings you to the picturesque countryside plains and rolling hills of Bordeaux's right bank wine producing area. This private full day small group wine tasting tour packs a lot of delights. 

Each of these local wineries produce vintages with distinct soil features backed by a long winemaking heritage. The wines produced here are a blend of Merlot grapes with deep, bold flavors, along with other local grape varieties, especially Cabernet Franc and, to a lesser degree, Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Wine & History combo on a St Emilion full day tour

At your arrival in the Saint Emilion appellation we will take you to two very different wineries so that you can understand how techniques and production can vary from one winery to another. 

On this type of wine tour in Saint Emilion we combine the visit to a very modern winery with that of a more traditional, family owned one. By doing so, it will be possible for you to better comprehend the technical transformations that have taken place over the years and what are the principal differences between traditional and modern winemaking and the repercussions this has on the structure, characteristics and aromas of the wines produced.

After the wine tasting session it will be time to discoer the village. Enjoy a walking tour with your guide in the village of Saint Emilion. Discover the most significant landmarks of the village and retrace the history of a famous Monk. Stroll through the quaint, cobbled stone streets of this medieval town. 

Listen as your tour guide recounts local history, from the days of the 8th century hermit Emilion, to the 19th century mining galleries, which still lie beneath the village. It is no coincidence that Saint Emilion has been awarded the Unesco World Heritage status in 1999. After the walk, enjoy some free time to explore on your own in the village. 

The legend of Emilian 

The first indications of human settlements in the area date back to the Roman Empire, but the story of Saint Emilion starts in the eighth century AD. At that time, a monk from Brittany, fleeing persecution in his hometown of Vannes sought refuge in one of the natural caves near the settlement of Ascum Bas.

Although he lived the simple and secluded life of a hermit, Saint Emilion allegedly performed several miracles from his Aquitaine hideaway. Soon, his renown spread far beyond the town and region, bringing pilgrims and disciples from far afield to visit him. The small settlement grew fast as it became a religious center. 

After Saint Emilion died, his followers made sure he would be remembered by giving the town of Ascum Bas the new name of Saint Emilion.Much later, monks developed more intensive and widespread vineyards. This is when the reputation for Saint Emilion wines started building towards what it is today. 

The rich Merlot-based blends of these fertile plains have given local wines a great appeal, and several wines produced in chateaux near Saint Emilion have been given the highest possible awards under the French appellation wine rating system.

Return to Toulouse

After your free time, make your way back to Toulouse city centre.
