We come out enchanted and enriched
by these beautiful encounters that only happen here!
My favorite is a memory shared with my colleagues guides and lecturers from the Tourist Office.
One mild October evening, to celebrate the end of the season, we reserve a table in one of the city's gastronomic restaurants. As soon as we get settled in, we recognize a client sitting at the table opposite.
We often see this gentleman at the Office. He is German and comes regularly to visit the village. He has just finished his dinner and then settles down with us while we start the aperitif.
Finally, we spend the whole meal in his company for a moment out of time.
Communicating as best we can between German, French and English, we talk about wine, philosophy, heritage, books, etc...
We leave enchanted and enriched by these beautiful encounters that only happen here.
Moreover, it is night, the village is asleep under a starry sky and beautifully lit, it is my favourite time to wander through the medieval streets of Saint-Emilion.
