Wanting to see something of the wine country around Bordeaux, I took G and my Dad on a full day tour with Rendez-vous au Château in September 2014. I chose a private tour in the hope we would get off the beaten track, and get time and space to enjoy the chateaux that we wouldn't get on a larger tour.... More

My husband and I recently spent a day touring wineries with Frederic. We were there on a one day cruise stop and Frederic made the most of our day. He knows wine and took us to some incredible wineries in different areas and to a wonderful chateau for lunch. We really enjoyed our day and can't wait to go back,... More

Don't hesitate to book Frederic, we'd book him again in a heartbeat! He far exceeded our expectations. The little touches, always smiling and joking, he's a wonderful personality as well as having exceptional knowledge about wine in the region and wine making. We had already done another tour the day before in the Medoc with someone that Frederic had recommended... More

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
