Our guide, Quentin, exemplified the perfect wine tour host. Knowledgeable, funny, and personable, Quentin led us through a lovely day of tasting. His expertise softened the tannins of a usual wine tour, and we received a First Growth experience for a table wine price! His ability to communicate a love for wine—whether to a wine novice or a Master Somm—is unparalleled. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

As my main man Larry David would say "Pretaay pretay pretay good!" Perhaps I would rate the Fun factor to the max if we got to smash grapes like they did in an I Love Lucy episode, but I digress, the trip was classy AF, the tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable and caring with our inquiries, sorry I forgot his name but the driver was magnificent AF, his experience driving around the backroads of Medoc was awesome, made us feel like we were on a French safari! The barrell rooms were so monumental and the multimedia tools they utilized was astounding. This is a professional crew that also knows how to have fun. Overall great tour, and would do it all over if I only could!
