DreamTrips: Bordeaux Village & Vineyard Tours, France - Bordeaux


About Your Trip

Bordeaux, France, conjures up many things: picturesque vineyards, grand chateaus, world-class architecture and lively nightlife. On this DreamTrip, you’ll spend a day a very special part of the Bordeaux wine-making region, the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. It’s here that Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wine is produced, but it’s also the home to the remarkable Monolithic Church said to be the largest of its kind in Europe. Beyond its bell tower and Holy Trinity Chapel is a subterranean world that includes a hermitage and catacombs dug into the limestone rock hillside. Venture underground to see the cave-like 8th-century home of monk Emilion and graves of Christians from days gone by.

Above ground, spend some time on your own in the village. You can stroll the narrow cobblestone paths, perhaps making your way to Collegiate church and cloister, or King’s Keep tower for views of the verdant countryside. You may find it hard to resist another guilty pleasure in Saint-Emilion — almond-inspired macarons! Your last stop of the day is a chateau known for first-growth wines. Enjoy an on-site tasting sure to encourage further exploration into delicious Bordeaux wines.

Back in Bordeaux, make the most of your day of leisure by exploring your fascinating surroundings. With most of the historic city designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, there’s no shortage of attractions. Within walking distance of your hotel are Musee des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, Basilica de San Severino de Burdeos and Maison du Vin de Bordeaux.

What we love:
• With more than 10,000 vineyards in the Bordeaux region, you’ll find plenty of chateaus of all classifications offering wine tastings. Some popular ones include Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau d’Agassac.
• Formerly a quiet agrarian city — Bordeaux’s nickname was La Belle Endormie or the Sleeping Beauty — it’s now a vibrant destination with 2.5 million annual visitors.
• Romans brought wine grapes to the region in the first century and found limestone-rich soil perfect for vineyards.
