Saint-Émilion is a veritable outdoor museum, founded according to the legend by a modest hermit ... city full of history, perched on a rocky promontory, Saint-Emilion and its vineyard draw their originality from the limestone which offers an exceptional soil vineyards. The architectural frame of 8 towns forming the Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion testifies, meanwhile, the constant evolution of the landscape and people: a religious heritage (churches, chapels), hundreds of wine chateaux. Thus the Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion was listed as World Heritage World in 1999, the title of "Cultural Landscape". This was the first vineyard classified in the world. Our heritage and terroir have a huge influence over the local gastronomy. Wine also plays an important part in it.
