Cycling out into the surrounding countryside, you'll begin to spot turrets peeping over the leafy vineyards that line every path. This is a sure sign you're in châteaux country, and before long you'll make your first stop at a family-run estate. Your tour will include a visit to the vat house and chateau cellar, where you'll learn about the traditional winemaking process that has been handed down the generations. As your guide speaks, you'll experience the vitality of passion the viticulturists of this region have for their traditional, centuries-old culture.
Take a break to enjoy a picnic lunch in the garden of the chateau, before you walk through the village of Saint-Emilion on a guided tour. Your guide will recount a wealth of stories from its vast and varied history, including the tale of the altruistic Breton monk, Émilion, after whom the village is named.
