9:00 am: Be met in your hotel or at your boat in Bordeaux.
Drive towards the spectacular village of St Emilion. For many, the name St Emilion conjures up the taste of rich red wines, but the town of St Emilion is worth a visit in itself. Most of the famous sites (including Europe's largest underground church) can be seen only as part of the excellent official tour. St Emilion is the oldest wine area in the Bordeaux region. The UNESCO organization recognized the great territory and put the site on the World Heritage List. St Emilion wines are considered the most robust of all the Bordeaux. Enjoy lunch at leisure in a restaurant suggested by your guide.
In the afternoon, you will visit 2 of the most famous wineries: Chateau Franc Mayne* and Chateau Troplong Mondot*. The Château Franc Mayne, Grand Cru Saint Emilion, whose cellars are located in former stone quarries, is located on the Right Bank of France's Bordeaux wine region. As with most Saint-Emilion wines, Franc Mayne is produced mostly from Merlot grapes. The Château Troplong Mondot is grown on extensive vineyards rich in limestone clay soils. Powerful, well-structured with pronounced complex tannins, its deep aromas of truffles and blackberries develop over time. Mondot is the estate's second label and was created in 1985. Made mostly from Cabernet, this elegant wine displaying silky tannins has grown into a grand cru in its own right.
5.00 pm: Return to your boat or hotel in Bordeaux.
