An Absolutely Marvelous Day

"I wanted to do something very special for my husband's 73rd birthday. Doug gave us a day we will always remember. We loved our tour! We had an absolutely marvelous day--delectable wines, beautiful landscapes and villages, informative narrative, and great company. This is the perfect way to really appreciate the area and enjoy wine tasting."

Fantastic wine experience

"We were staying in Provence for a week and wanted to be introduced to the local wines. What a great day! It was so delightful to leave the driving and choices to someone else for a change."

Highlight of a 3-Week French Vacation

"Doug was the complete professional guide. He tailored our visit to our interests and sorted through the vastness of potential tastes to give us the overview we sought. His knowledge was invaluable and delivered with class."
