Extending from Fronsac to the gates of the Périgord region, on the banks of the Dordogne, the landscape of the Libournais is made of hills and vines, introduced long ago by the romans.
Wherever you may look, river terraces and promontories provide superb viewpoints over an ocean of vines, châteaux and wooden coppices. From far away you will notice the medieval town of Saint Emilion perched on the bejeweled edge of the plateau.
During the day, you will discover Saint Emilion vineyards that have been listed as UNESCO World heritage Site, in the cultural landscape category.
Charming winding roads will lead you through picturesque villages that reveal an exceptional wealth of heritage sites : Gallo-roman vestiges, Romanesque churches, windmills, dovecotes…
From the highest point of the famous Fronsac Hillock, you will admire one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Bordelais area.
The large limestone bank under the vineyard gives the red wines their rare elegance.
I invite you to taste the fine deep-colored red wines of Saint Emilion and of its surroundings, and therefore compare the nuances that distinguish the different appellations from the area.
