From the very best Rose wines in the world to fabulous Red wines using the exclusive Mourvedre grape, and some bright refreshing White wines, the vineyards of the AOC Bandol have so much to offer both the newcomer to the world of wine and the serious connoisseur. We will be delighted to show you these and our particular part of Paradise here in the South of France with Bandol Wine Tours, picking you up straight from your Hotel or your Cruise ship. Riviera Wine Tours offer the same with the AOC Provence around the glamorous St Tropez, and the grand AOC of Bellet near Nice. We also offer guided tours of the entire region, showing the lovely and stylish Monaco, Antibes and Cannes etc to your order.

My husband and I had a fabulous day wine tasting with Richard. Richard is a top notch guide who is very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Our lunch at Hostellerie Berard in Cadiere-d'Azur was first class!! We couldn't have had a more pleasurable day, thanks to Richard! We will definitely book again and will recommend it to everyone!!!

Richard offered an affordable rate and was very responsive to emails about the tour. We sampled a large variety of wines and thoroughly enjoyed our group wine tasting. Richard went above the call of duty in... More

Really great day, Richard was a great host, took us to a variety of vineyards, from a tiny one person operation, to a large commercial vineyard. Tasted wonderful wines, and had great food. Richard's enthusiasm really showed, and it was a real high point of the holiday. Definitely recommended.

We were four norwegians visiting Bandol in September. Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked a full day with Richard. We visited three different vineyards and had a marvellous time. Richard turned out to be humourous, well informed and obviously well known. The gourmet lunch at Hostellerie Berard was excellent and well timed - and what a wonderful view!... More

My husband and I booked a full day with Richard and it was absolutely terrific. He took us to three very different, interesting and colorful Bandol area wineries. Right off the bat, it was apparent that he had excellent rapport with the wineries and was well respected and highly regarded. He was quite knowledgeable without being a know-it-all. We enjoyed...

We chose a half day tour and had a great time. Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable, not only about the wine but about the general area. The 2 vineyards we visited were very different, however both were excellent and produced wonderful wine. I was delighted that the quality of the red wines on offer were as good as the... More
