Francois was the BEST wine tour guide you could ever imagine. He is entertaining - but really knowledgeable and a good teacher. We saw the cobble stones where the vines grow and learned that they are 20 meters deep because of the glaciers. We learned the 6 steps in tasting wine - Wine drinking will never be the same for...

Incredibly knowledgeable and wonderfully personable, Francois provides a wonderful and entertaining tour. We learned to not only appreciate traditional white and red wines of the region, but also how rich and varied the roses can be. On our Monday tour of the Lirac, we were fascinated with the tour of one vineyard that continues the 2000 year old tradition of... More

My wife and I had a great time with Francois, so much so we ended up booking three days in a row! On our advanced request Francois gave us a private tour in the northern Rhone valley, in Hermitage, which I STRONGLY recommend! The vineyards are about an hour drive north of Avignon by car or very nearby the TGV... More

We had both an educational and entertaining day. From the wine tasting lessions, beautiful views of the countryside to the Friday market visit and lunch in a small village, it was all a delight with our host, Francois - a long day but highly satisfying. We found the 6 steps to "proper" wine tasting somewhat complicated but ultimately it was... More

Just came back from the Thursday tour with Francois. It was wonderful! The wines, the scenery, the food and the company made our last day in Avignon so memorable. Francois is charming and entertaining as well as very knowledgable about wines and the area. Don't miss it!

Francois picked us up at our vrbo in St. Remy for a day of touring Chateauneuf du Pape. It was an experience of a lifetime. He was entertaining, knowledgeable, and did he best to make our day enjoyable. He succeeded. We went to a nice little place for lunch and had a great meal (plus a little more wine!). I... More

We did the Thursday tour and enjoyed every minute of it. Francois is passionate and communicates lots of information in an entertaining way. We learned a lot about wine during this tour, met lots of nice people, tasted several good wines, and the scenery along the way was absolutely breathtaking. This tour is worth your time and money.

We booked a tour to the Luberon with Francois for our group of four, and shared the van with one other couple (I believe six people is the limit.) Our first clue to this experience was Francois' offer to pick us up right at our front door in St. Remy. It just got better from there. As others here have... More

My husband and I stayed in St. Remy and Francois was generous enough to pick us up there in his comfortable Peugeot. We had an amazing day touring the Luberon region. Francois is incredibly knowledgeable about wine and the beautiful Provence region. He is funny, considerate and made our day one we will never forget. We can't wait to go... More
