It’s not too far to drive from Bordeaux. It’s a famous medieval wine town. Then I learned that many well-known wineries in Bordeaux do not sell directly to individuals. Many of them are traded through wine merchants. This town is known as You can buy a very good selection of vintage red wines from famous Bordeaux wineries, and you can go to the store to discuss them in detail. Regardless of the wine trade, the scenery here is still very good. It retains the original medieval architectural style. It is very simple and tasteful. Sometimes it is as beautiful as a picture. It is a place worth staying.
I know Saint-Emilion because of Lao Xu's movie "Put Love Through to the End". Since I have come to Bordeaux, I must go to Saint-Emilion. The church in the center of the town overlooks the rural scenery surrounding the town, which is a patch of vineyards. Especially on both sides of the road from the railway station to the town, there are ripe grapes hanging on the racks. It feels like this French countryside is really beautiful.
San Damerón is an ancient city in the Gironde province. This city has a history of more than 1,000 years since its establishment. There are many ancient buildings and streets here. Walking on these trails to see the medieval European style here, and occasionally sit down in the street cafes and taste coffee. It is really a good travel feeling.
You can go in September, when the grapes have not yet been harvested. It takes about 1 hour by train from Bordeaux. The ticket is cheap. It takes more than 20 minutes to walk to the bustling center of the station and pass by many wineries on the way. The town has a long history and is included in the World Heritage List. The paths are paved with stones, the houses are very strangely scattered, and the slopes are steep. Because there are many emilion wineries, you can make an appointment to visit. It is a must to sit down and have a glass of collection of red wine. About 30 euros for a mid-to-high-end glass, one sip, the mouth is wine red. Choose a good vintage wine as a souvenir! It is recommended to visit for half a day. If you go back by train, you must be optimistic about the time to go back.
From the train station to the small town, we are accompanied by large green areas, and our mood is infinitely beautiful. The sun shines a golden light. The small town is like a yellowed postcard, revealing a long and charming story. There is no staff at the train station in the small town. It is best to buy a return train ticket in advance. If the ticket is marked with AUTOCAR, then pay attention. This is a bus. Don’t wait for the train at the platform. Just wait outside the train station for the bus to arrive
