Gem of the Dordogne Valley

Standing magnificently on top of a hill overlooking the Dordogne Valley filled with lush vineyards, Saint-Émilion fuses history and modern culture with medieval ambience--even in its wine bars, museums, markets, art galleries, cafes, and shops. With fascinating Romanesque churches, underground monuments and quarries, and ruins stretching all along steep and narrow streets, this commune in the Gironde department of Aquitaine has a history dating back to prehistoric times. The city is one of the principal wine producers of Bordeaux, starting when Romans introduced viticulture as early as the 2nd century. Now, the district has its own an appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) for wine blended primarily from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with many wine tastings available at several wineries. With our online itinerary creator, France vacations can be built around trips to Saint-Emilion and other destinations in France.
