夫婦とドイツ人の友人と参加しました。 ホストのGildasはとても親切で優しい方でした。ワインの知識がない我々に対してゆっくりと丁寧にボルドーワインについて教えてくれました。 ワイナリー見学、テイスティングでは、長い歴史を持つワイナリーの方に案内してもらえます。テイスティングではワインの楽しみ方も教えてもらえます。もちろんどのワインも最高でした。 ワインを楽しんだ後、サンテミリオンの素晴らしい街並や葡萄畑の絶景ポイントに連れて行ってもらえます。美しくとても感動的でした。 大満足の1日でした。

Amazing tour. Gildas took us to sites we would have never found by ourselves and gave great advice for first time wine-tasters! Gildas really personalized everything for us and he didn't mind our endless questions. Really glad we chose to go with him instead of a huge group tour. He also took great photos of us which was a big plus!

Gildas’ expertise and love for the French art of wine making is second to none. The experience felt less of someone touring you around and more of a good friend giving you a crash course in Bordeaux wines. Every detail was fantastic. Book this experience now.

My boyfriend and I took this wine tour with Gildas and were absolutely blown away. I should start by saying that for the entire morning, it was pouring rain. A torrential downpour. Despite this, we had an incredible time on the drive out to the St. Emilion countryside from Bordeaux. Gildas switched between French (for my boyfriend) and English (for me) with ease - describing the landscape, history, and culture of the region. We are relatively new to wine, and Gildas was able to scale the conversation to our wine knowledge. The wine tour and tasting was lovely, and we learned a lot from the chateau owner as well. Since we had decided to stay in St. Emilion for the night, Gildas drove us into town rather than back to Bordeaux, and dropped us off at our lodgings, took us to a couple of sights in town, and recommended two absolutely amazing restaurants that we ended up trying during our stay. He went above and beyond with the experience, and made our time very personalized and memorable. Highly recommend!!

Where do I start! This experience was magical and Gildas' expertise was superb. His intimate knowledge of wine and Bordeaux was very apparent. We had purchased the half day guided tour, however, we decided to extend it to a full day guided tour. We visited two chateaus, walked around the village, and had a three-course lunch. My favorite stop was with Thibault Bardet of Vignobles Bardet. Thibault was an amazing story teller and gave us wine making insight that was easily understandable. He also shared that he was a huge Game of Thrones fan and he shared his story of how he went on to create a wine based on the descriptions in the book. The wine, Dornish Wine, was delicious.
