Bonjour Wine Lover,

Just imagine visiting Bordeaux and actually seeing and tasting the world’s most famous chateaux, like Mouton Rothschild or Latour. Picture yourself at the oldest of the First Growth Haut Brion, seeing their cooper at work, or admiring the palace-style of Chateau Margaux. Imagine sipping a well-aged Yquem in our Chateau’s private dining room. Every wine lover in the world would like to visit these places but they are not easy to get in to, as Bordeaux doesn’t offer open tasting rooms. Allow me to open these doors (and bottles) that usually stay closed for outsiders. I will guide you through the entire experience like an insider! When you tour with me, you’ll taste more Classified Growths than on any other Bordeaux wine tour!

Indulge yourself !

Let us turn your wine tour into a Bordeaux Wine Experience! 

 

 “Taste, Learn and Enjoy in a down-to-earth and Friendly Atmosphere with Like-minded Wine Lovers!”

All right, let’s get acquainted: My name is Ronald and I will be your personal guide to the intriguing world of Bordeaux wine. I urge you to stay with me for a minute, but if you are in a hurry to go to our wine tour descriptions, you can click here. On all our tours you tour with me. It’s my job to make this wonderful world of Bordeaux accessible to all levels of wine lovers. I have over 30 years experience in tasting and touring Bordeaux, so I know my way around. And I love sharing my knowledge and my sense of humor with you on our tours. And my cellar of course… That’s why with me you’ll taste such an incredible array of Classified Growths, some of them decades old!

Our tours are different because we see things different: Let me take a minute to tell you how I see things. I know that the wine world can be a bit pretentious and elitist at times and Bordeaux is no exception. Don’t worry; I have a down to earth approach. Leave your tuxedo, suits and ties at home! A Bordeaux wine tour is a vacation and you are on vacation to have fun! With us you’ll visit the good stuff, the best Grand Cru Chateaux but without the snobbery. For me wine is fun and is to be enjoyed and shared with friends. I love wine and hate snobbery, so there you go.

 

Make your dream come true

Wine is fun and is to be enjoyed and shared with friends

Wine is fun and is to be enjoyed and shared with friends”

Imagine yourself tasting all five of the iconic  First Growths—Château Latour, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild, Haut-Brion and Margaux plus the legendary Yquem. You’ll get to know the major appellations of Bordeaux and taste the best of the bunch. Don’t worry if some of this is new to you. We are not snobbish at all. All the opposite, I love to uncork a passion for Bordeaux and its wines.

 

Stay at our privately-owned Chateau

Be our guest at our 18th century Chateau Coulon Laurensac. It just doesn’t get more personal than that. Combine the best of old-world charm with all modern comfort. Our chateau is Michelin-rated and you’ll have all the comfort and luxury you need, but you won’t pay for facilities you are not going to use. This is one of the reasons why our rates are so competitive. We think you’d be better off spending that part of your budget on wine…

Your personal Invitation to create memories for a lifetime

Ronald and Margaret love to welcome you at their Bordeaux Chateau

This is an invitation to an exceptional Bordeaux Wine Experience that you will remember forever. Don’t wait too long as our tours tend to sell out early.

I hope you’ll join me so I can share my passion and those great bottles with you!
