Why take this tour?

We'll collect you from Bordeaux Tourism Office, at 8:50am or 1:50pm. Be punctual as winery visits are exclusive to our group. An English-speaking local driver/guide, Bordeaux wine expert, will await you with the tour name and Ophorus logo sign.

Once onboard our comfortable air-conditioned Mercedes minivan, you will be treated to an informative and entertaining commentary about the region's wines as you make your way to the Saint Emilion wine producing area. Our minivan is equipped with an on-board P/A system so everyone can hear the guide's commentary, no matter where they are seated. 

In Saint Emilion, you will have the opportunity to visit and taste wines at a selected Grand Cru winery. Learn about the wine production process, tour the technical installations and ageing cellars, and indulge in a tasting session of these exceptional Bordeaux wines.

After the wine tasting, we will take a walking tour of the village of Saint Emilion. Stroll through the medieval streets and soak in the rich history of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Your guide will share fascinating stories about the village, from the days of the 8th century hermit Emilion to the 19th century mining galleries that lie beneath the village. Enter one of the many wine cellars to continue your tasting session or simply immerse yourself in the charming atmosphere of Saint Emilion.
