First, scheduling the tour with Olivier was easy, and communications/responses were consistent and fast. Olivier clearly has extensive knowledge of both the wines and the wineries/chateaus throughout the region. My wife and I toured 3 wineries (3/4 day tour), and all were excellent. I was impressed that each of the chateau owners/families clearly knew and trusted Olivier well, and they almost treated him like family (we seemed to have access to roam wherever we wanted). Last, if you love food and wine pairings, make sure you ask Olivier to book the restaurant "Coteaux & Fourchettes" for lunch. This is a Michelin rated restaurant near Orange, and we had a fantastic 3 course meal paired with 2 glasses of wine each for ~$100. Both the meal and the wine tour were bucket list items for both of us.

Six of us from N CA (live near Napa) agreed that of all the wines tours we’ve ever been on Olivier raised the bar to a new level of knowledge, engagement, hospitality, and congeniality. He loves what he does and never tired of our questions. This is the guy to book for the Cotes du Rhône region! John

Olivier gave us a friendly, fun and engaging tour of excellent wineries in Provence, including a boxed lunch at a winery with wine!

The wine trip that Olivier provided was the highlight of our Rhône wine travels. His knowledge was excellent and was able to relate to all wine/vinery knowledge levels. The wineries we visited were most accommodating and interesting. Learning about the soils and impact on wine making was fascinating and gave us a new perspective of wine making. And the lunch pairing was a wine/food highlight of our entire trip. I've been on many wine trips and winery visits and this trip was at the top!!

I highly recommend this tour to wine experts and novices alike. We spent a day in the picturesque southern Rhône wine region, stopping in vineyards to learn about grape growing and terroir, touring a winery to learn how the wines are made, visiting four tasting rooms to experience the wines of Rasteau, Cairanne, Gigondas, Châteauneuf de Pape, and Côtes du Rhône, and enjoying a 4-course lunch at the restaurant affiliated with one of the wineries. The guide, Olivier, was engaging, articulate, and incredibly knowledgeable.
