"Philip, Julie, and Sarah really went above and beyond in Bordeaux. It was requested that we compose our wine resume, and then Sarah was able to secure private tours for us at châteaux in the region (three in St. Emilion and three in Medoc). That was an amazing experience to see the variety of the châteaux and the wine-making process at each and was a highlight of the trip. I highly recommend Philip, Julie, and Sarah. They incorporated our trip wish list beautifully. " - Helen, Nov 2022
