"A wonderful day spent in St-Émilion learning about the wines and of course tasting some. Our guide Tomas had an excellent knowledge of the area and the wine making process. He provided us with a lovely picnic lunch and a fabulous afternoon surprise at the organic winery. We were able to walk around the medieval village and take in it’s enchanting surrounds while listening to the history and the stories of this place. It was expertly organised and along with the weather, a perfect day. Thank you Tomas"

"This week my friend and I did the Famous Monk Tour of St. Émilion Wine Tour by Rustic Vines. We visited 2 chateaus, a wine merchant, had an in depth talk about the wine making process, and tasted approx 10 red wines, lunch was also included for €125 pp! It was a really fun day although the talk about the wine making process was a bit too long in my opinion. Rustic Vines also do a wine tour by electric bike which we really wanted to do but it was sold out due to it's popularity, so i'd definitely recommend booking a tour early!"

"We had a wonderful tour with Tim, our lovely Kiwi guide, who was very knowledgeable and clearly, loved his Bordeaux blends! The tour was very well organised and Tim was so considerate to get us some gluten-free bread for the picnic, which was such a pleasant surprise! Bordeaux is definitely on the list for a future getaway visit. Merci & au revoir!"
