Enjoy a visit of the village of St Emilion, including the largest monolithic church in Europe.
Discover a city where history is everywhere, from the cobblestone streets to every vine leaf, including the town’s traditional macaroons. This delightful medieval village, in the heart of the world-famous Bordeaux vineyards, is the cradle of impressive monuments and gorgeous architecture. Saint-Emilion sits on a rocky promontory and is surrounded by vineyards that owe their originality to their limestone soil. From the 9th to the 19th century, men worked to extract blocks of stone in order to build St-Emilion as well as nearby chateaux. This also accounts for more than 200km of underground galleries as well as a monumental underground church. Enjoy lunch at leisure in St Emilion.
Follow with a visit of Château Laniote*, of St Emilion appellation and a wine tasting. Discover the Chateau through a complete visit with the owners as well as a video presentation. The female owner, an oenologist, will describe the different vintages to you while her husband does magic tricks. Chateau Laniote has been in the same family for almost two centuries. The property was built by Pierre Lacoste. Seven generations later, Chateau Laniote is still owned by the same family, on the female line.
