Frederic was awesome. Taking us to 3 out of the ordinary small chateaus on the right bank of Bordeaux. Then he explained all the parts of wine making to us (novices), and with his experience as a producer and merchant in the past, I would guess that he could keep anyone entertained. He introduced us to 3 completely different makers,... More

We visited Bordeaux last summer and hired Frederic for a wine tour after reading the reviews. He did not disappoint with his knowledge of the area and relationships with the wineries we visited. This is very different than NapaValley or Sonoma, where you do not need a guide to make your way around. In Bordeaux, it was very helpful to... More

If you are looking for a day long private winery tour in Bordeaux you could not possibly do better than to go with Frederic Borliachon. Obviously more expensive than cramming on a bus with 40 other people, but worth every Euro. You will take in the beauty of the region, go to fascinating smaller family wineries making superb wine that... More

Our group of 6 friends had the pleasure of a full-day wine tour with Frederic of Rendezvous au Chateau. He picked us up at our hotel in St. Emilion in a very comfortable touring van and shared his vast knowledge of the area and of winemaking, given that he was raised in his family's winemaking business. One of the best... More

Our day with Frederick was phenomenal! He arrived at our hotel at the appointed time and guided us through three wonderful Chateau in villages we had pre-selected. His knowledge of the region was vast and he shared his insights with humor and generosity. One of our favorite stops was a charming restaurant, Chez Meme, near St. Julian where we enjoyed... More

We arranged a 2 day tour with Frederic. He picked us up at the airport. He was waiting for us and he has a comfortable clean car. He is a very friendly person, easy going and down to earth. We did the left bank and right bank. He showed us the good wineries and their operations, and then took us... More

He spent 8 hours with us explaining the Bordeaux wine region and was very informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and highly recommend him. He took us to a... More

Having been to Napa Valley, CA several times, our best experience was when a local insider gave us pointers on where to go. Bordeaux was going to be no different. After researching and contacting 4-5 wine tours, we settled on Frederic to take us on a private tour of the St. Emilion wine country. Our day with Frederic turned out... More
