The village was listed by UNESCO in 1999 as a World Heritage Site for it's superb historic vineyard landscape, which has survived intact and is still in activity today, producing world famous wines from a multitude of prestigious wine estates.
The St Emilion Tourist Office is staffed with helpful multi-lingual staff, and is located in the town centre next to the Monolithic Church tower.
