Day 3: Saint-Émilion, Wine, and Glimpses of Heaven

Ophorus Excursions offers a variety of tours in France. I’ve booked three for this trip, and the first was today.

We visited three St Emilion vineyards and wandered around the village. There was much to photograph.

THINGS I LEARNED TODAY: the rules around giving a winery a St Emilion appellation classification are ridiculously complex and change frequently. I learned I didn’t particularly care which rules were followed by which winery and I admit I glazed over after a bit. Loved all the wines and the gorgeous views though!
