Hamish is a true gent and everything you could want from a guide. His career experience in wine and his local experience in Bordeaux made our first visit one I will always remember. My wife and I are enthusiastic wine lovers, but we have unsophisticated palates. Hamish arranged three amazing stops for us along the Medoc, two second growth and... More

This was our first trip to Bordeaux and we had an amazing time. Hamish at Bella Wine Tours was fantastic. He is a walking wikipedia of Bordeaux and a real pleasure to be with. In two days we visited eight Chateaux (all very different), had lunch with him at some wonderful spots, and dinner at some fun places too! Hamish... More

If you are looking for someone to be your guide, from wine drinker to wine critic for the region of Bordeaux, look no further than Hamish at Bella Wine Tours. Excellent experience! Spending time with Hamish is a delight. My wife and I like to think of ourselves as knowledgeable about wine but feel we got our French Wine Master's... More

I first want to thank Hamish for our outstanding wine tour! He was wonderful, informative, and any other superlative you can think of. Our family had a private tour. We had two small children with us and Hamish worked hard to make them comfortable and to work around a child's schedule. The Bordeaux countryside was amazing. It was the reason... More

Sent the kids on a school trip, then we escaped to Bordeaux for the week! Spent 4 days visiting vineyards across the region. Covered the left and right bank, with amazing access everywhere. From the power of Pauillac, to the grace of St Emilion and the elegance of Sauternes, we had a wonderful time and learned so much! Bella Wines... More

That was an absolutely amazing wine tasting experinece on the left bank of Bordeaux which is "must visit destination-pilgrimage for wine lovers". We were pleased to get to some even closed for public eye chateau-s and its splendid surroundings. Hamish is a great master of what is dedicated to wine, about wine and its culture, history, owners, families. During the... More

Hamish delivered on one of the best tours I have ever been on. He is passionate and knowledgeable but also a lot of fun. If you want to spend time in one of the most gorgeous spots in the world, meet dedicated craftsman, and soak in beautiful land/architecture, call Hamish immediately.

Our cruise ship stopped in Bordeaux (La Rochelle) in October, 2013 for two days. Rather than being hauled around in buses, we found Hamish on this site. Out and out, this guy is terrific. He is originally from the UK and now lives in France. He distributes Bordeaux around the world. He is a negociant in Bordeaux - and also... More

Hamish is truly an excellent host who introduced the history, complexity and backstories for some of the famous winemakers in the Bordeaux region. We found the entire trip to be both entertaining and enriching for our lifelong journey in wine appreciation. Most importantly, the lesson was not lost on us when he took us to neighboring vineyards which produced arguably... More
