I took a wine & cheese tour with Sue and it was really nice. She took us to a well-known cheese factory, where we tasted amazing cow cheeses under her guidance. Then we visited 3 wine cellars, and in two of them we were hosted by the very owners, who told their history and explained their wines with a contagious... More

As part of our first visit to Burgundy, we three couples chose in advance one of Sue’s tour offerings: Cheese and Wine scheduled towards the end of our week’s stay. She picked us up in a minivan and drove us through vineyards filled with workers picking this year’s harvest. We found ourselves at an artisan, goat-cheese maker’s farm in the... More

Learned a lot about tasting, the soil, the process. Went to two vineyards, did 10 tastings at the first and about 8 at the second. A great lunch was included. We were taken into countryside and shown unique views of the vineyards and chateaus. We were picked up at our B&B and returned at the end of the day. Over... More

Sue is a longtime resident of Burgundy, a serious foodie and wine scholar. She takes an intricate and systematic approach to introduce the food and wines of Burgundy, along with an intimate knowledge of the land and invauable contacts. Touring Cotes de Nuits with her was a pleasure - visiting wineries and cellar doors, she was able to slip us... More

Navigating the Burgundy wine region can be tricky if you're not familiar with the wine makers, appellations, vintages and of course, the French language. Sue was a fantastic host who masterfully crafted an entire day in the Cote de Nuit for us thanks to her expert knowledge of the region and the people who run the various Domaines. Coupled with...

As I sit here this evening enjoying a fine 1er Cru from the Burgundy region, I am drawn back to our trip to the region last summer. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had 3 nights planned in the Burgundy region. Wanting an efficient "taste" of the region we decided to a privately escorted tour....

One can't get a better tour of Burgundy than with Sue. Informative is an understatement. Not only does Sue share her vast knowledge of the area - food, wine, cheese - with you, but also, she shares her favorite places with you. This is about as personal as it gets. She customizes her tours to fit your wants and needs,... More

The tour with Sue was customized just for us. She watched our reactions at the first tasting and helped us find wines that matched our tastes. She was affable and informative. I felt as though it would have been impossible to get into the domaines we visited on our own. We began the tour with no knowledge of Burgundy wines... More

Although it was the darkest and rainiest day of our trip, Sue gave us an enlightening tour of the vineyards, imparting her local knowledge, guiding us through tastings at two wine producers and taking us to lunch at a nice restaurant. The highlight for me was Sue's selection of the wine at lunch, which was the best we had on... More

After a one-day tour of the vineyards and domaines surrounding Beaune, I felt as if I'd had a crash course in all things related to Burgundy wines. Sue has an exceptional knowledge of wine and culinary delights of the area, as well as all of the cultural and historical nuances that encompass this age-old industry. I recommend the day-long tour... More
