We thoroughly enjoyed our half-day Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine tour led by Romain, whose knowledge, enthusiasm, and willingness to answer questions made the experience special. Our first stop on the tour was a vineyard, where we learned about the characteristics of soil and climate, and also tasted grapes that were about to be harvested. After that, we tasted wine at a small winery and a chateau, and Romain provided informative comments about the characteristics of each wine while soliciting our impressions, as well. In all, an excellent tour that shouldn't be missed!

Romain is simply the best. You know somebody is an expert when they are able to tailor their message to any audience: dial up the technical lingo when around other experts, and simplify the message when around novices. Romain has been able to successfully turn his passion into a business, and it shows.

His tour easily bested any wine tour we've been on before (including tours in Napa and Tuscany).

We booked a wine tour with Romain for our first experience to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. From the moment he picked us up he had us entertained and informed. His knowledge and passion for the region and wine was exactly the kind of experience we were after. Thanks Romain for an unforgettable experience. And the wine is great too!

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!
