Saint-Émilion and its UNESCO-listed vineyard

It is in the Dordogne valley that the wines of Saint-Émilion flourish. Remarkable soils and a perfectly adapted climate give them their letter of nobility. And Merlot is the king grape variety!

Saint-Émilion is made up of 4 appellations: Saint-Émilion, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, Lussac Saint-Émilion and Puisseguin Saint-Émilion.

You will be conquered by the roads of the region with their incomparable charm, between the green of the vines and the white of the stone walls that border them. The green and steep hillsides will undoubtedly make you think of the atmospheres and landscapes of Scotland or Normandy.

It is not for nothing that these wine-growing landscapes have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Activities at the heart of the Grands Crus Classés

Learn how to make wine. The winegrowers of Saint- Émilion have been able to develop the quality of their wine over the decades, without distorting their terroir and using ancestral methods which also reduce their impact on the environment. From pressing to bottling, from fermentation to aging in the cellars, the production of a quality wine follows a long process. Choice of materials for the vats, addition of ferments, dosage during assembly, you will know everything!

Practice wine tasting. Wine lovers or novices, start with a Grand Cru Classé and continue with a cuvée from a family property. Tasting a wine is an art where all the senses are in turmoil: sight, smell, taste… Thanks to Wine Cab, become an expert in the choice of your wines!
