We are a little different and very special

The bespoke itineraries are designed especially for you and a bit of what you fancy – whether it’s purely wine you’re after or mixing it up with a dash of food, a splash of culture, a sliver of cheese or a dribble of chocolate. The groups are small and intimate (up to eight people max) or private, so you have the undivided attention of your specialist guide.

But don’t be put off by the title; your tour leader is not wine snob… unless you want them to be… they’re there to conduct you through the experience in a thoroughly enjoyable way. So kick back, relax and journey through our tour ideas, you’re bound to find one we can tailor-make for you. Booking in advance is essential.

We offer FULL DAY and HALF DAY private tours: Please contact us directly for an itinerary and quote. All our themed tours include collection (08h30 and 09h00) and drop off (17h30 or 18h00 at the latest), a wine specialist with transport and all tastings. Lunch for own account.
