Perfect wine tour
Ed So 11/15/2022
First of Julie was an amazing guide. Perfect English, knowledgeable and fun. Right from the start, when I contacted the company by email, the response was quick and professional. We went to great spots that were all memorable and bought wine to ship back to Canada at a few locations. I would highly recommend, as she took us to spots that catered to our desires. We are real fans of the Pomerol wines. Julie help to bring us to a vineyard that produced Pomerol. Thank you again.

Fun and informative
Roze Swartz 10/22/2022
I had such a great time yesterday. Great weather, great wine and a nice lunch. There was a total of 6 of us and we learned a lot from our guide Clem. He explained all about the classification of wine and the different regions. I’m fairly well wine-traveled but didn’t know too much about French wine and how to identify a good one. Now I do! Definitely recommend!
