The ancient wine-growing region of Saint-Émilion, situated in the Bordeaux region of France has a long history dating back to Roman times. Taking its name from a Benedictine Monk called Emilian who lived in a cave from AD750, today Saint-Émilion is one of the largest wine producing regions in Bordeaux.
Celebrate the 2,000-year history of wine by enjoying a glass at the estate of Château de la Rivière. Set upon 65 hectares, this magnificent castle was first built in 1577 and has since been restored in the 19th century. The bottled wines are perfectly preserved in perfect conditions within the manmade cellars, three hectares wide dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
Pair your Château de la Rivière with meat dishes such as roast chicken, pork, lamb, duck and game, as well as with Asian dishes like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
