We really enjoyed this trip and Bertrand is a fantastic host! He was very knowledgeable about the production of the wines in the region and took the time to explain everything. We visited two wineries and then Bertrand’s mother made us a delicious lunch which we enjoyed with some wine in her home. On the way back to Montpellier we were shown around a beautiful medieval village. A fantastic day which we would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Montpellier!

This was a really lovely day out and well worth the money. Our guide was very friendly with a good sense of humour and an excellent knowledge of French wine. We got to try many different wines and had a tour of the chateau which was very interesting. The lunch afterwards was amazing, a beautiful setting and very fresh, tasty food with good company. We were given plenty of great wine to enjoy with our lunch too. Would highly recommend this tour.

Bertrand was terrific! Lots of good information about Languedoc and Pic St Loup wines in particular. He was precisely on time, meeting point was easy to find, and we had a great time with the other people on the tour. Dinner was fantastic and the wine was superb. I would highly recommend this tour!

Bertrand and his whole family are too kind. They really know how to show that they care about you as visitors and ensure that everyone in the group is having a wonderderful time! Cheers to them and this beautiful region of France!

Bertrand is an excellent, friendly guide who really understands the region and the wines produced here. He and his wife were wonderful hosts and served a beautiful lunch. We highly recommend this tour!
