For generations, Bordeaux has been known as the most famous winemaking region in the world. Every year, wine lovers from all over the world come to Bordeaux for one simple reason: to visit the 300,000 acres of vineyards that lie outside town and stretch for miles in every direction. And no matter which direction you go, there's an appellation—from the classic reds of the Médoc to the underappreciated whites of Graves and Entre-Deux-Mers; from the unparalleled dessert wines of Sauternes, to the rising reds of the Right Bank's Pomerol and Saint-Émilion.
Winemakers from all over the world have credited the wines of Bordeaux for influencing their personal winemaking style. Food & Wine Trails has designed a special experience at three châteaux that produce Grand Cru Classé reds in the Saint-Émilion appellation, considered by some to be the “Capital of Merlot” and possibly the oldest, Enjoy tours and tastings at each estate, plus a wine-paired lunch. End your afternoon in Saint-Émilion for a private guided tour of the underground hermitage and monolithic church.
