A Sample Itinerary

After meeting your English-speaking wine guide in the centre of Bordeaux, enjoy a 45 minute drive to the scenic vineyards of St Emilion. You’ll be chauffeured to two Grand Cru Classé Château throughout the course of the day where you’ll meet the winemakers, taste the wines and share their passion. In between visits you’ll stop for a guided walking tour of St Emilion where you’ll have some free time over lunch to explore the cobbled streets, bars and brasseries and soak up the view from this UNESCO listed village. After your second tasting, your driver will drop you back to Bordeaux city where you can continue to explore this vibrant European city.

Need to know: This tour involves a 45 minute drive into the vineyards on a minibus. It also involves an optional walking tour of St Emilion. The tour is semi-private which means there could be up to 8 other wine enthusiasts with you – but still allows for a very intimate experience with the winemakers! We would be more than happy to make lunch arrangements for you in advance and have some wonderful recommendations. Should this tempt you to stay an extra night upgrades are also possible. Private tours and specific tastings can also be arranged. Please contact us for more details.

Amazing six days in Tuscany. We did a Chianti tour followed by a Brunello tour. Everything from the flights, car hire, hotels, guide and restaurant recommendations were great. Our guide took us to some lovely family owned vineyards and was very knowledgeable. We will definitely use Smooth Red again.

I don't usually put reviews but we have just been absolutely blown away by this weekend organised by Smooth Red! The staff were really friendly and managed to cater for all our requirements. A really informative and fun weekend. Even restaurant suggestions were superb and we really had a lovely time. I have already recommended to friends and family and will definitely be using Smooth red again for future wine tasting adventures!
