I traveled to Bordeaux with my boyfriend & his parents in November 2014. Frederic picked us up at the airport and immediately took us on our day long adventure through the vineyards of Bordeaux. Along the way, he pointed out landmarks in Bordeaux & made great conversation around winemaking & tasting. We stopped at Chateau D'Issan & Chateau Mouton Rothschild.... More

Frederick collected us (4) from our rented apartment at 9 o'clock for a very personal and varied tour. We were fortunate to coincide with the vendange, complete with a trip round the vineyards , initial processing and fermenting areas of Chateau Pontets Canet, a bio dynamic producer. It was fascinating to note the idiosyncrasies of different producers (Chateau Pedesclaux &... More

My wife and I traveled with her sister and our brother-in-law to Bordeaux and Paris in late September. The highlight of the Bordeaux portion of our trip were the two days of private wine touring we spent with Frederic Borliachon. Frederic, a former winemaker, is knowledgeable, friendly, witty, and a delight to spend several days with. As noted in the... More

Our tour guide Frederick was prompt and picked us up at our hotel in his clean and comfortable mini-van . My wife, sister-in-law, brother-in-law and I had him for 2 consecutive days. He brought us to lesser-known wineries where we had full access to their facilities and guides. He was very informative and personable. He's had experience working in several... More

If you are planning a trip to Bordeaux and wish to REALLY experience the wines, the people and the magic of this place, run to your computer and contact Frederic at Rendez Voux Au Chateau for a private tour!

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

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
