Saint Emilion Wine Region Guide

Where Timeless Elegance Meets the Perfect Pour


Last updated: June 10, 2024


The ancient and beautiful region of Saint-Emilion has beguiled the palates of wine lovers for centuries. Indeed, for those who claim that Medoc wines require too much time and effort, we give you the rich, approachable, and moreish wines of Saint-Emilion. The critical mass of red wines (whites are very rare) are utterly irresistible, only enhanced by a suitably decadent food pairing.

Meanwhile, the town itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site, bursting with excellent restaurants, luxury hotels and a surfeit of history. It is chic and yet very welcoming. It is also a beacon of democracy and fairness in a region dedicated to intransigent hierarchies; the framework for classifying Saint-Emilion’s top wine estates is updated every decade. In this corner of the Dordogne, magic awaits.
