Very cool trip! The excursion with Carol was very informative, charming and enjoyable. We had a fun little group and there was a good vibe. We really liked the two or three chateaux. Visiting a small wine cellar in the middle of St. Emilion was also very impressive. Definitely a recommendation!

My friends and I spent a beautiful afternoon discovering the Sant Emilion and Pomerol grape varieties. We had the opportunity to take a walk in the village of Sant Emilion and we tasted several glasses of wine accompanied by a typical aperitif. Absolutely to do!
