When planning our trip to Bordeaux we were a little overwhelmed with all the choices of vineyards and chateaux in the area. We booked a day-long tour with Dewey and he put together an itinerary that would suit all four of us (we were two couples). When setting up the tour via email, Dewey asked us questions about our preferences... More

Dewey Markham is exactly the person you want to take you wine tasting in Bordeaux! We spent two days with Dewey, the first wine tasting day in the Medoc region and the second in Saint Emilion. He arranged a wonderful itinerary with diverse experiences, and his encyclopedic knowledge about the wines and the Bordeaux region not only introduced us to... More

Dewey Markham is your man. My husband and I explored the Pessac-Leognan and the Medoc regions of Bordeaux with Dewey in June. What an experience! Dewey started by asking us in advance what our interests were and what we knew about wine making in general and the wine business in the Bordeaux region more specifically. He then developed a 2-day... More

After viewing the Bordeaux site in Trip Advisor I had questions about Bordeaux (the city). Dewey answered all of our questions without me even knowing what he did for a business. Soon after we were looking for a tour guide for visiting Chateaux in the Bordeaux area. I remembered how helpful Dewey was and remembered that his email had something... More

We engaged Dewey Markham for two days on our first visit to Bordeaux. We asked him to arrange appointments to visit with Chateaux in Saint Emilion and Medoc. He arranged an agenda that included a nice variety of visits with both top Chateaux as well as a few that recently risen to new heights. He selected great local restaurants for... More

Dewey's tour & explanation of the Bordeaux vineyards was one of the best I have ever taken ... It was the most enjoyable days I have spent on a trip! Thanks Dewey!

My fiancee and I (from Manhattan) and some good friends of ours (from San Francisco) recently spent the day with Dewey. In a word: EXCELLENT. Dewey arranged a tour of three St. Emilion chateaus for us. At each chateau, Dewey introduced us to the winemaker who gave us a private tour. During that tour, Dewey also spent a significant amount... More

If you are serious getting to know the world of Bordeaux wine making, this is your guy. Dewey is an amazing teacher and a perfect companion for your time in the region. Not only is he a font of knowledge about the production and tasting of Bordeaux wines, but you will get a full picture of how the region has... More

I cannot say enough about the enjoyable and informative day Dewey orchestrated for my group of eight friends. We were not familiar with Bordeaux and Dewey took the time to carefully and thoroughly explain how Bordeaux was different from other wine regions of France (and other wine regions of the world). After some preliminary discussion he selected three Chateau (Chateau... More

Dewey Markham Jr. is Bordeaux wine personified. My wife and I, joined by another couple, just completed a three day, eight chateau tour under Dewey’s wing. My fear was that a program like that might prove to be too intensive or too monotonous, especially for wine “amateurs” such as ourselves – but Dewey made sure to select chateaux which presented...
