Napoleon Winter Tour
5/5
"As promised in my previous review in 2017 where we had the Famous Monk tour, I did not hesitate to book another tour with Rustic Vines. This time I booked the Napoleon Medoc Winter Tour for myself and a couple of friends. We were not disappointed. Our guide Thomas was very knowledgeable. We visited 2 chateaux, one in Saint-Estephe and another in Margaux, a wine merchant and had a very good lunch at Restaurant Le Savoie, a pleasant surprise since we did not expect that a lunch included in a tour would be that good."
Custom Wine Tour
5/5
"This tour was a treat from start to finish. It was particularly special because it accommodated my niece (6 years) and my nephew (3 years). Our tour guide, Julie, was fantastic. Julie provided lots of interesting and helpful information about the Bordeaux, Saint-Emilion, wine, wine making, architecture and the history of the region. I would highly recommend Rustic Vines and Julie!"
Famous Monk Tour
5/5
"An excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. (...) We had a picnic lunch, excellent narration by a young man who is studying wine-making, a tour of two vineyards and a surprise picnic at the end of the tour with wine, bread, cheese, and sausages. We walked around St Emiliion, an old city that was originally a monastery. A good variation of riding, walking, and sitting in a beautiful countryside."
