    We had an excellent day on this tour! Nicholas picked us up from our hotel lobby and immediately made us feel at home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the region and we both learned a lot. One suggestion that we loved about another tour we did s to have bottled water and snacks in the transportation (we each had small charcuterie baskets on the other tour), which was great between wineries. We will definitely book another tour when we’re back in France.

    The tour guide was amazing. I was curious about to process and differences in wine (I didn't have much knowledge on wine) and he was very helpful and seemed to enjoy having a "newby" on the tour. I would definitely go again.
