We booked a full day tour with Romain as part of our holiday in Provence and had the best day of the entire trip. All told we visited 4 different wineries, two large and two small family owned. We sampled many different types of wine but also learned so much along the way about the process as well as the Chateauneuf du Pape terroir. Our day started with a trip to a vineyard where we stopped among the actual vines so Romain could explain the distinct terroir that makes CDP so delicious. Highly recommend Romain for being both very informative and very entertaining, we had such a lovely time and can't wait to do it again soon!

I’m so unsure of where to start, other than this tour blew me away in terms of expectations. Romain was an unreal guide, and has such an enormous passion for what he’s doing. Having grown in in the region he knows many of the chateaus personally and was able to get us some special inside looks. His tours are extremely personable and he does smaller groups so you feel more like you are on a private tour with friends and not a big typical tour. His passion for wine is beyond what I have seen for tour guides. When we come back we will be booking with Romain again without a doubt. And an added bonus....he is able to ship wine directly to you even months after having done the tours with him.

Wow wow wow. Romain, what a great introduction to our first wine tour in France. He is knowledgeable, funny, personable and a man of many connections. He picked us up from the meeting point and immediately made conversation, and took interest in where we were from and why we were travelling. He is sincere in his love and passion for wine and the region he is from, it is rare to come across that. He is talented in what he does, if you are looking for a great time, lots of wine, history and true raw french culture...look no further!!
My husband and I had such a fabulous time on our tour, learnt so much, and tasted some of the most incredible wines we’ve ever had.
We are not typically avid tour takers and this felt far from that. Relaxing and enjoyable afternoon, truly!!

Romain was a great teacher, leader, and guide during our wine tour yesterday. He made sure all the small details were taken care of so we could focus on having fun while learning about all of the wines in chateaunefdepape. His kindness really shines as well! It was an amazing day!
