Très belle expérience ! Accueil chaleureux et amical. Explication intéressante du domaine avec explication détaillée des expériences, du passé du domaine et des techniques utilisées ainsi que des réponses à toutes nos questions. La dégustation a été une expérience instructive et savoureuse pour les amateurs de vin (pas de connaisseurs) que nous sommes. Ensuite, nous avons fait un très beau pique-nique avec une vue magnifique sur le domaine et un vin de notre choix. Si nous repassons dans la région, nous reviendrons sans aucun doute ici !
We were delighted with this visit.
What a wonderful day. A wonderful experience. Bridget and her family were exceptional; friendly, kind and welcoming
Our guide was great. She explained a lot of technical things that were new including the egg white method. It was great to be there during harvest. The tasting included a couple of special wines. The plate of cheese was a nice bonus.
I would highly recommend the tour with a tasting and picnic. Brigitte was very friendly and the tour was interesting. The wines were very tasty and the picnic was superb. We really felt welcome at Chateau Guibeau. Such a lovely family experience, rather than a commercial one. Now we need to find the wines in the UK. :-)
Very nice experience! Customized explanations by a wonderful host! Highly recommended!
A wonderful, informative visit with a storied wine family in Bordeaux, with excellent wines! Highly recommend!!!
It couldn’t be a nicer experience in French countryside. It is the best experience in Saint Emilion!
This whole experience was wonderful and the tour was perfect and the food and wine was fantastic. We would do it again. A very enjoyable morning and hostess was very cheerful and friendly.
Thank you!! It was so nice to meet you. Selena & Fernando
Excellent in every way.
The best wine tour we ever had. Brigitte was a delightful host who was very engaging and entertaining and gave us a great insight into the life of a winemaker. We tasted some lovely wine and brought a few bottles home to Ireland. We will call back next time we are in St Emilion.
Brigitte was a very friendly and knowledgeable host . We learnt some new and interesting things about the growing process and challenges in Saint-Emiilion region and the Chateau and grounds are beautiful. We would love to have enjoyed a picnic but the weather was very changeable . We thoroughly enjoyed tasting the lovely wines of Chateau Giubeau and shall enjoy drinking them on our return to Portugal.
Brigitte was wonderful! Welcoming and interesting experience and fabulous value for money. Charming chateau and vineyard. Thank you
Merci a votre papa et maman pour cette visite! 2h a écouter votre papa (très bavard) mais nous qui ne voulions pas une dégustation à 50, nous avons été servis! Bonnes vacances dans les Landes! Steven Chloé et Victoire
Fabulous day tasting the wine and learning about the vineyard. Beautiful picnic provided, highly recommended.
It was a warm and friendly tour given by the hostess of the Chateau. Probably due to Covid, it turned out to be a private tour for me and my wife. We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about how the wine yard in this region is working.
The people at Chateau Guibeau are extremely friendly and give a very nice tour. The meal combo with tasting is a great value! Ruben & the girls
Wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
Nous avons passé un super moment. Tout était parfait, la présentation, la dégustation, le pic nic adapté au fait qu\'on soit végétariennes. Tout était excellent et copieux. Encore merci !!
We had a fabulous time with Brigitte! She was so friendly and personal. We felt like she became our friend immediately. It was a laid-back, casual experience with lots of two-way conversation. The wines were delicious, and the picnic lunch was beautiful and outstanding! We hope to come back again sometime.
Welcoming host, informative tour, and good value in the wines.
Excellente expérience : une visite avec le propriétaire, c\'est toujours mieux!
We had a perfect lunch and tasting here. So relaxed, friendly and genuine - we were shown around by the owner who is 5th generation of the vineyard and chateau. I loved the explanations and descriptions of wine making and tasting - so vivid and something that finally made sense to me. The picnic and wine we enjoyed on the grounds overlooking the vines was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much.
Excellent visit with wonderful picnic served in the garden
La visite du propriétaire était formidable : passionné et intéressant nous avons beaucoup aimé découvrir ce vignoble de puisseguin saint emilion!
The owner (son) was very nice, engaging and fun to speak with. We had a very nice visit here. We didn't purchase because the prices were a little too high for us.
