He selected four extremely different wineries for our tour, varying from the traditional Lafitte and Leoville-Poyferrre, to the modern Pichon Barron and the ultra-modern high-tech Pedesclaux. It was very educational listening...More

Great day out with Hamish. Would highly recommend. With a limited time and Chateaux that can be harder to visit, Hamish provides the answer and will leave you much more knowledgable and appreciative of the history, appellations and politics of Bordeaux
