Highly recommended. Frederic customized the trip for us: we asked for a sampling of different wine-making personalities and styles in the area. We saw "homemade" wine making and also very professional and marketed wines. It was a good mix of chateaux, and Frederic did well to explain the region and it's people, the complex classifications, and the business/money side of... More

I can't stress enough what a fantastic day we had with Frederic. After making initial contact, he was booked on the day we wanted to do the tour. However, he checked with the other couple who had booked him and we shared the tour which only added to the enjoyment. We didn't have transport but Frederic was happy to pick... More

We made a last minute trip to Bordeaux on a cold Sunday morning and were so fortunate to have Frederic as our guide. He was patient (we knew next to nothingn about wines), knowledgeable (not just wine, but also history, culture, etc) and funny! Even though it was a Sunday and chateau options were limited, Frederic managed to pick three... More

Just been in Bordeaux for a long weekend with ten of my friends & had a fantastic wine tour/sightseeing day with Frederic as our guide! From start to finish he was most helpful in suggesting itineries which were very reasonably priced for bordeaux & which showcased the incredible countryside and wine regions france is famous for.

Frederic provided a wonderful day for myself and my guests. I am in the wine industry but he was so knowledgable that I learned so much more. I couldn't have asked for a better tour. He took us to both Grand Chateaus and off the beaten path wineries. All was incredible. I can't wait for my next trip when I... More

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
