Even on Bastille day Frederic took the time to show us how Bordeaux looks like. A few hours on the west coast to see the oyster farming was probably the highlight for me. Tasting + the wine + the stories = perfect. After that we had a visit to Ch. DESMIRAIL where a charming host showed us how they did... More

My husband and I took a private tour of three chateaux in St. Emilion with Frederic during our visit to the Bordeaux area this past winter. While it was a chilly, foggy day, Frederic's knowledge and passion for all things French wine made up for it! We had private tours with the wine makers, learned about and tasted some very... More

We were lucky enough to book Frederic on our recent trip to Bordeaux. He brought an amazing amount of knowledge about the area's region, wine and industry history (prior to giving tours, he spent 20 years as a winemaker). More importantly, he provided his insight in a fun and non-pretentious way. Unfortunately for us, due to our travel schedule, we... More

Like everyone else we rate Frederick very highly and highly recommend him to be your guide while visiting Bordeaux. In the past years we used Bruno Delmas who we love dearly and did the same service, unfortunately Bruno died last May from a heart attack. We were recommended to Frederick by Dominique of Cave Ulysses in Margaux and we couldn't... More

We spent an amazing day with Frederic touring chateaux in Graves and Sauternes. He was incredibly knowledgable and personable. He was very interested in making the day useful and interesting for us, by asking what we were interested in so that he could individualize the experience. As a result we went to some wonderful places and had a very good... More

Frederic is fantastic! Please let him take you to the most charming chateaux and the most delicious restaurants. He is charming and knowledgable, and has personal relationships with the owners. We had a wonderful day out with him on the right bank of the river, and are planning our next trip to see the left.

We spent one day with Frederic for a wine tour of St. Emilion visiting three wineries and the city itself.
