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

My wife and I had a full-day private tour with Hamish yesterday and it was fantastic. Hamish gave us several options to choose from for itineraries, picked us up at our hotel and whisked us into the beautiful Bordeaux countryside. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wine industry, the process used to make wine in the region, and of course... More

It was our first time to Bordeaux and our group was looking for an itinerary that would highlight the best chateaus off the beaten path there were not frequented by tourists. Hamish created a day packed with the history of wine making from local producers, private tastings and a cave tour. He shared his vast knowledge for wine, it is... More

My wife and I went to Europe on our honeymoon and wanted to see it all, but because of this we only had 1-2 days in each stop. Spending a full day with Hamish was one of our better days on the trip. We did a full day in St. Emilion area, and although we were only able to scratch... More

We had a wonderful experience in Bordeaux. Our previous wine tours had been in California and there is no comparison. Hamish is the perfect guide to help you explore Bordeaux' amazing Chateaux. Hamish opened doors to Chateaux that were off the tourist path and even arranged for us to spend the night at one. We spent two days with Hamish... More

I cannot recommend Hamish and Bella Wine Tours enough. With a limited 1 day schedule and a desire to access the near inaccessible chateaus, Hamish came through and put together an exceptional itinerary for the two of us. Hamish was able to secure access to a particular chateau that is currently closed to the public and helped us make arrangements... More

What a tremendous experience we had with Hamish over a two-day period of Chateau tours and tastes. Hamish (your guide) will bestow an enormous amount of wine knowledge on your during your tours with him. From the start he was quick to respond to our very last minute request for tours and quickly put together a stellar itinerary for my... More
