We had the best day wine tasting! Frederic picked us up from the door of where we stayed and he is just such a nice guy and extremely knowledgeable. Frederic is an excellent tour guide - we honestly cannot recommend him enough. We visited 3 beautiful Chateaus and tasted what I can genuinely say are the amongst the best wines... More

Frederic's love of the Bordeaux growing areas and Chateaus, its heritage, and his personal experience as a vintner with associated friendships with the owners made this tour magical. Even in the cold, wet weather of February, he made each stop a special event and his lovely van was spacious, spotless and comfortable. The Chateau d'Issan, in the Margaux region was... More

Frederic was an excellent tour guide. Great communication! Frederic arrived with a car seat and nice van and showed us around St Emilion. He took us to some very special wineries that were not touristy. Very authentic and Frederic had excellent knowledge of the area and is well connected. Would highly recommend!

My wife and I toured the wine growing areas of Pessac-Leognan, Graves, and Sauternes one lovely day in mid October. We visited a winery at each appellation and had a wonderful lunch. Our guide, Frederic, couldn't have been better. A former vintner, he knew his beans (or grapes!), to be sure, as well as the owners of the wineries we... More

My wife and I recently returned from a five week trip traveling through Western Europe. Without a doubt one of the highlights was our two days spent touring Bordeaux with Frederic. I doubt you will be able to find anyone more knowledgeable about wine than him. He was truly amazing, walking us through the vineyards, explaining everything from how to... More

My wife and I had a amazing two days in September visiting vineyards in Margaux and Paulliac. Frederic is very charming, has an extensive knowledge of the local area, wine (obviously) and excellent relationships with the chateaux, culminating in a private tour to Lafite. I would recommend Frederic to any who wish to have a very special visit to Bordeaux.

Frederic was great! This was the 2nd time we hired him. He is knowledgeable, well connected and has a very pleasant personality. He got us into a few places that we could not get into ourselves and provided a lot of color commentary. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

We arrived in the Port of Rochelle by cruise ship and were promptly greeted outside the terminal by Frederic with his mini-van. We had booked the wine tour for two days with an overnight in Bordeaux. Frederic was kind, obliging, professional and a vault of wine knowledge that was very impressive. His knowledge of wines, the grapes, the soils and... More

Frederic was a great guide and very knowledgable. We also had an English tour guide who joined my wife and I. We visited 3 vineyards, and saw the methods of wine production and the different techniques used by the different vineyards. We tasted some very high quality wines that would not be on my everyday drinking wine list. This definitely... More

Mr. Borliachon was highly recommended by friends who had toured wih him. He was booked for our available dates, but helped us make private bookings with chateaux. He was extremely responsive and helpful, and he would be our go to guy in Bordeaux next time.
