Wine, Dine & Travel in Style
Imagine a Really Luxurious Place. Imagine arriving at the Châteaux. Strolling along the gravel path to reach the wine cellar. After the tasting you sit down for Lunch – with a view over the vineyards or the park…
If you are looking for a wine tour out-of-the-ordinary, a Luxury Wine Tour in France that takes you Far Beyond the ordinary, then you should talk to us. It is easy to get into the Famous Chateaux (many receive thousands of visitors each year). But it is not easy to get to meet the really interesting people. It is easy to find hotels – but it is not easy to know where you get the Best Service, the Best Meals and the Most Comfortable Beds. Plus that it is located just right for visiting the vineyards.
What about a lunch with nothing but Sauternes served all through? Strange you might think, but as the Vintages continue to get older with every course you discover that there are some unexpected and wonderful combinations. Or the when you sit around the table with the winemaker (or the owner) and discuss the ins and outs of winemaking. Unless you prefer to just sit back and enjoy. Enjoy the meal, enjoy the 18th chateau where you are dining. Enjoy life in the wine country. But it is not always the most expensive or famous that will give you the Best Experience. If you would like a special truffle lunch that can be arranged. Morning truffles hunting in the forest next to the vineyard followed by Lunch. First some truffles appetizers. Then some scrambled egg with truffles (the best way to enjoy it some say), followed by tagliatelle al tartufo (well, almost – still in France). And then more. The only thing without truffles was the ice-cream and the coffee. But there is a chocolate truffle of course. This will not be at a restaurant, but at the truffle hunter’s own place with lunch cooked by his wife and his son.
Or, to come back to the Wine Side of Travelling, let us tempt you with our Premier Grand Cru Tour: we all know which were the top chateaux in the 1855 Bordeaux classification: Château Mouton-Rothschild, Margaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Latour, and Haut-Brion. And then lets add Chateau d’Yquem. Have you been there? How about a very Exclusive Wine Tour that takes you there.
