St. Emilion Private Winery Tour?


My wife and I are headed to Bordeaux for 2 full days (August 11th and 12th) and thought we had a 1 day private tour of the St. Emilion area booked with a highly rated wine tour company. However, they are now unable to accommodate us and I would like to get any thoughts folks have on groups that may have what we are looking for. We love wine, but would not consider ourselves experts... we would love to explore this Medieval area with a couple of great wineries, good food and taking in the local culture. We are staying at the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux and would be looking for a 1 full day tour either Monday August 11th or Tuesday August 12th. Any help would be much appreciated

Try Dewey Markham at www.dmjwineworks.com. He is a fantastic guide who can show you any area around Bordeaux - will book chateaux visits and make reservations for lunch. Or try Julian at www.pavillon-villemaurine.com. He and his wife run a lovely B&B in Saint-Emilion and he offers tours of the area, usually to their guests but he probably would provide a tour to you if he didn't have another group already booked.
