The "Route du Vin de Bordeaux en Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Fronsac" is a discovery trail running runs along the right bank of the Dordogne, between Bordeaux and Bergerac, as well as the northern part of the Entre Deux Mers.
The road takes its name from the three major AOCs of the same name, and is organised around the port city of Libourne, which today forms the Grand Libourne region.
The flagship of the territory is without doubt the magnificent medieval city of Saint-Emilion, classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as a "Cultural Landscape." It is one of the most famous showcases of the Bordeaux vineyards.
The "Route des Vins de Bordeaux in Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Fronsac" is distinguished by the homogeneity of its landscapes, its geology (limestone subsoil ), its concentration of vineyards, and the prevalence of family operations run in small and medium-sized properties, contrasting with the very large operations of the "Route des Vins de Bordeaux in the Médoc."
The promotional organisation Atout France has been tasked with labelling certain points of tourist interest and services as "Vignobles & Découvertes" and "Bordeaux Vignobles & Chais." When you see a plaque carrying these terms you know that you have found a distinguished destination for tourism and wine, offering a range of complementary tourism products, such as visits to chateaux, accommodation, catering, heritage tours, wine tastings and recreational activities.
It aims to provide more visibility to tourists, relying on national or local quality initiatives already in place. With this national label, attributed by Atout France, and aimed at a national and international clientele, service providers are engaged in meeting quality criteria, and giving tourists an additional resource in their discovery of the Bordeaux vineyards and all their riches.
Among the professionals involved, you'll find châteaux, charming accommodation in the vineyards, restaurants and wine bars, places of cultural and natural interest, leisure activities and events taking place in the area.
