Wine cellar

A little self-tour of this rustique wine cellar was perfect to escape the September sun. We tried a couple of the wines and walked away cooled and tipsy!

Very interesting to walk in the underground cellar and the staff was very informative about the wines. Loved a couple of the Grand Cru vintages after tasting and bought a couple bottles. Highly recommend the 2009.

This cellar is underground and was interesting to see old cavernous space put to use. It was a bit dark and hard to see in some areas, but certainly worth a walk around.

This wine cellar is located almost in the centre of St Emilion and visit of the cellar is free of charge. The cellar is huge, but not so romantic like neighborhood Clos des Menuts, which we can recommend more.

We were apprehensive about visiting vineyards or a cave du vin on our own. Luckily, Maison Galhaud offered a free wander in their cool, dark cellars. This allowed us to experience the atmosphere without having to endure free tastings and then feeling obliged to make a purchase. They, of course, offer 'dégustation' and I'm sure have plenty of quaffable wines... More

Took a short trip out of Bordeaux to visit the cave. This is not set up as a full visitor experience but rather a relaxed visit to one of the main producers in the Saint Emilion area. A quick tour around the cellars in the village followed by a tasting of three of their wines, increasing in quality. No hard... More

Maison Galhaud is one of the first things you come across on the road to the Saint-Emilion's centre. We went in just to have a look en it was a very nice surprise. The site is beautiful and the caves are a wonderful place to cool off. We got the possibility to try 2 of their wines: a Bordeaux and... More

Nice little self tour through the caves. The Entry is at the top of St. Emilion. You can walk through the caves where the wine is stored after walking through the tasting area. We had tastes afterwards of a couple of the wines. Good, but not great. Nice place to visit though and the video gave a good history of... More

Maison Galhaud is situated at the top of the hill occupied by St-Emilion. It is centuries old. Parking should not be a problem. I recommend the long stay car park which has more spaces than the others which are closer to the location. Looking across the road before progressing to Maison Galhaud you will see row upon row of perfectly... More

The guide is charming and speaks little English so a linguist in the party is a help.He explained that stone for the Paris Opera House was quarried here and that there are several lower galleries.The workings broke into a medieval chapel and a grain silo both of which he showed us. The wines were described, sampled, discussed and purchased. Well... More
