Just 35 kilometres (22 miles) northeast of Bordeaux, picturesque UNESCO World Heritage town Saint-Émilion has a heritage which stretches back to Roman times, including its vineyards, descended from vines planted in the 2nd century, which eventually were to become the reknowned Saint-Émilion wine appellation. Among the sites worth seeing are a monolithic subterranean church hewn out of rock between the 12th and 15th centuries. The wineries and vineyards of this area open their doors to visitors generally by advance reservation; you may also want to consider, between mid-April and mid-November, hopping on the "Train of the Great Vineyards," which can include a visit and tasting at Château Rochebelle.
