St-Emilion/wine tours in Oct.

Staying 2 nites mid-Oct in St. Emilion. It appears the wine tours arranged by the Tourist Office in summer months become more limited by then. Any suggestions for the best (i.e., speak English, friendly, close to St. Emilion) chateaux to arrange to visit on our own (or thru the Tourist Office)? Any other "must-do's" for St. Emilion or vicinity? Thanks.

We found this one to be very good just last month, english speaking owner, very friendly and gave us a wonderful tour and wine-tasting. Chateau Lanoite 33330 Saint-Emilion, tel: 05 57247080, fax 05 57246011. Enjoy your trip.

I just wanted to bring this to the top because I'm going to St. Emilion in May and am disappointed the wine tasting courses won't be offered except in July and August at the Masion du Vin etc. I speak french, but my fiance doesn't, so I would like to go somewhere that is friendly and happy to speak english. If you have further suggestions, please share.

Back in 1985 we visited the Chateau Prieure Lichene in November and were given a private tour by Alexis Lichene's daughter, who spoke fluent English. The address listed in his book is Chateau Prieure-Lichine, 33460 Margaux, France.

Hope this helps.

I used this site to find a couple of chateaux to visit this fall:

We are looking at chateaux in the Gironde, rather than St Emilion, but the parent site is where we did our search.

Also, do a search on the web for Bordeaux chateaux or St Emilion chateaux.

We got immediate fax/email responses and are all set for early October.
