Excellent wine tour with great guide
Justin 04/08/2022
We had an excellent guide, Theo, who was very knowledgable on all aspects of the wine making business in Bordeau. He brought along a scented game to help us understand how to describe the various scents of wines. He also brought along food for pairing with the wines. Appreciate the extra effort and interesting conversations we had. Thoroughly enjoyed the visits to the Chateaus, even though it could be a hit and miss as you do not get to know which chateaus you will be visiting before hand. We were quite lucky to be able to visit Chateau Malescasse, beautifully designed with exceptional wines. Overall, a very meaningful experience that I will recommend to friend.

It was a great afternoon, even if we are not wine experts we enjoyed the experience. The guide was very nice, speaking a good English. 100% recommended!

An Amazing Time in the Medoc
Andrew 08/11/2021
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.

Quentin our guide was very personable and spoke excellent English.Such a mix of people which also made the morning interesting. The ladies who spoke during our visits to the Chateaux were very knowledgable and their command of English was also very good and were always ready to answer questions. My wife and I now have a better understanding of wine production and how it has evolved and has kept pace with the "green" issues. A morning very well spent!

Nice morning in Medoc
Wine expert wanna be 04/14/2018
Cecilia from Bordovino was awesome! Tons of energy and really made it a nice morning. The two chateaus we visited were very good and did a very good job of explaining the process and sharing with us the wine making process. Very nice tasting and not too pushy to sell.
