We spent two incredible days with Nicolle - winding our way through the Haut Medoc, Medoc and Saint Emillion regions adjacent to Bordeaux. Nicolle has lived and worked in the wine industry in the Bordeaux region for over twenty years - and her knowledge and expertise are readily apparent. She has established a wonderful network among the winemakers and we... More

This was our second time with Nicolle. Both trips included two couples. Nicolle made both trips the high points of our vacation. She not only knows the Bordeaux area, she knows the wineries and most importantly, she knows the owners and principals in the wineries. She secured tours and tastings for us that included walking and talking in the vineyards... More

Nicolle picked us up from the Cruise Port in Bordeaux. We toured 3 different Chateaus in the Medoc region with Nicolle. She had set up private tours at each Chateau, even though it was a Sunday. Nicolle is exceptionally knowledgeable about Bordeaux wines and the culture of the entire Bordeaux region. She is practically a sommelier herself, having passed several... More

My family, including our 14 month old daughter, went on a tour of Bordeaux vineyards with Nicole in September 2016. Nicole was a fabulous tour guide and not only provided insights into the wine of Bordeaux but also the people and culture of the region. Even before the tour started Nicole provided recommendations on lodging and after the tour ended,... More

We have done two tours with Nicole. Both wonderful. Her knowledge of the Bourdeaux region is extensive and full of wonderful anecdotes and local insights. Her wonderful personality and love for the region and for wine in general is inspiring. I have so many fond and funny memories of Nicole and her time with us and would totally recommend her.

We spent two and a half great days with Nicolle visiting chateaus on both banks and Sauternes. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has a passion for wine that is unmistakable. I feel that she is able to open doors to outsiders that otherwise would be closed, which is more of a necessity in Bordeaux than wine regions in the US.... More
