Saint Emilion – not just wine
… but the wine is certainly excellent. Beyond that Saint Emilion is, what I would say, the quint essential France location. Essentially the main streets of this medieval city are pedestrian only. Go figure as some of them would not be wide enough for a vehicle. They mostly offer the traditional cobblestone streets. The combination of cobblestone and inclines might suggest you not do too much wine tasting. A bit of a challenge there, since there are numerous opportunities to taste and purchase some wine.
Around this small city is more wine opportunities with the many vineyards. Some offer tours, other may be bed and breakfasts, but just driving through the country side is beautiful. Years ago we had a tour of Chateau Tour Grand Faurie. Their Grand Cru has become our favourite but not quite an everyday priced wine. More recently, as pictured below, they had a shop right in town.
