When you drive up the tiny road leading to the Chateau, you think that this must be a tiny wine-making operation; but nothing could be less true. The reason is that most of the wine and operation is well placed underground in the limestone caverns...More

This tour showed less of the production side than most wine tours we went on in the Bordeaux area, so it was interesting but not remarkable except to see the caves, left from limestone quarrying. This is why wine cellars are called "caves" in French!

Most enjoyable wine tasting tour ever of many many all over the world. You will be taken down into the limestone caves where your guide will move you slowly from room to room, darken the room, and allow pre-recorded stories and characters to appear. You...More

Let's start with the wine. They don't produce a lot of wine, but what they do make is wonderful. The limestone caves date back to when they were mining the limestone to build the church. A great tour of the underground caves and history.

We stayed here for two nights whilst on a shopping trip to Saint Emillion, and are so glad we did. The property itself is a working vineyard with all rooms exquisitely decorated in different themes. The location, on the slopes of the Saint-Emillion plateau, provides...More

We booked this and paid €15. Overall quite disappointed and didn't really feel it provided value for money. The caves were interesting but the sound and light shows weren't that informative. We only got to taste two wines which was again disappointing.
