Tailor-Made Wine Tours

What exactly does 'tailor-made' mean?

For both GUIDED and INDEPENDENT tours you will receive the following services:

  • Advice on accommodation and management of booking. I have an extensive network of contacts built up over the years, ranging from the most luxurious hotels to simple yet charming bed and breakfasts. They are all ideally placed for vineyard visits. You decide on the standard of accommodation, I recommend an appropriate match, and once we are in agreement, I take care of all booking arrangements.
  • Pre-arranged vineyard visits. My aim always is to provide a mix of renowned names and lesser-known producers, bearing in mind your level of wine knowledge.
  • Restaurant recommendations and bookings. Based on my years of experience I can make personal recommendations, from Michelin-starred establishments to authentic bistros, brasseries, and traditional country inns.

For GUIDED tours you will receive the following additional services:

  • Full-time bilingual assistant, both for wine-related and general matters. This would normally be me, but might be a fully experienced associate.
  • Ongoing wine education throughout your tour. Your assistant will be a qualified wine adviser.
  • Chauffeured transport from your arrival in the wine region(s) to your departure therefrom.

For INDEPENDENT tours you will receive the following additional services:

  • Full route planning within your wine region(s)

As every trip is unique, I can only give an indication of price at this stage: the final cost will be provided as soon as we agree on your overall requirements. As a rough guide:

  • 2-day independent €250
  • 4-day independent €450
  • 2-day guided €2000
  • 4-day guided €3500
  • 6-day guided €5000.

These are per couple estimates excluding accommodation and meals. A 30% deposit is payable on agreement of the trip, the balance due six weeks before the trip starts. If you enquire within six weeks of your trip, 100% payment is required on agreement. No payments are refundable but are transferable, either for another time or to other persons or both.
