Many thanks for all your help during our ( too brief ) stay . We are all agreed that you got it spot on with our visit , mixing the size, variety and quality of visits/wine tasting perfectly.. Certainly your reputation seems very good as they all seemed happy to see you and of course that makes the visits much more personal and thus enjoyable. All in all great fun and much enjoyed by us all. David Sibree for the Benfield Group, UK
We can't stop talking about what a great time we had with you in Burgundy. As Rich said, this weekend we shared a fabulous dinner with our friends and dazzled them with our new found knowledge of wines and food. The prior weekend, we went to a party where I brought a platter with Epoisse cheese and french bread. It was devoured quickly! Thanks again for your warmth and hospitality. ……..Patti & Richard Eisenberg ��' USA
The two days that we spent with you in December - one day for a wine tour and one day for the truffle hunt were exceptional. The wine tour was "THE REAL THING", talking and tasting with the actual winemakers in small historic cellars. It was delightful and we were so pleased that the tastings were not the commercial kind open to everyone. You were obviously respected by the wine makers we visited and the truffle hunt was not only entertaining, but also very educational. We would take both tours again and would recommend them to anyone wanting to get a true insider's view of Burgundy.
