Meet your group guide in Bordeaux, departure for a fun wine tour in the famous Saint Emilion area!  On the way to your first visit your guide will give you an explanation about the Bordeaux wines characteristics and classification. Learn how soil and climate as well as the type of grapes can influence the flavor of the wine.
   

10:00 Visit and tasting in a Chateau in the Pomerol appellation. Leave your preconceptions about Merlot at the door. You will be surprised at the difference the Bordeaux terroir makes. This is definitely not California.
