From the very best Rose wines in the world to fabulous Red wines using the exclusive Mourvedre grape, and some bright refreshing White wines, the vineyards of the AOC Bandol have so much to offer both the newcomer to the world of wine and the serious connoisseur. We will be delighted to show you these and our particular part of Paradise here in the South of France with Bandol Wine Tours, picking you up straight from your Hotel or your Cruise ship.

Riviera Wine Tours offer the same with the AOC Provence around the glamorous St Tropez, and the grand AOC of Bellet near Nice. We also offer guided tours of the entire region, showing the lovely and stylish Monaco, Antibes and Cannes etc to your order.

This wine tour with Richard is not to be missed. You would never know he has done this numerous time. He is enthusiastic, full of information, and an absolute pleasure to be around. We are so happy the reviews on Tripadvsor got us there. We went for a 3/4 day tour which included lunch in a wonderful, scenic restaurant. Richard... More

Excellent host. Amazing wine. Visiting wineries on a personal level with Richard made all the difference. Going to a winery that doesn't allow large groups was very special. Lunch could not have been any better, food and view. Don't miss this experience

Our half-day tour was a perfect way to get a close look at Bandol wine making and of course to get to taste the lovely and powerful wines of the region. Our guide Richard was a real expert, but also friendly and funny. We visited two different and very interesting vineyards and in both we were well received.

We were traveling on a cruise which stopped at Sanary Sur Mer in the South of France and I wanted to arrange a winery tour of the local Bandol area as I knew very little about this wine area. Bandol Wine Tours perfectly fitted the bill. Richard who runs the outfit was very easy to deal with when booking and... More

Richard is fantastic. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. The wineries we visited made great wine and we were able to meet many of the people who ran them. The restaurant in the picturesque little village was tremendous. Richard and his team did a great job.

As my wife and I searched for wine tours in this area, we came upon this gem of a tour. Simply put – legendary…on every level. First and foremost, this trip has personal embedded right into it. You’re in a small bus with a few other people. In this regard, this trip falls in stark contrast to many tours you... More

I can't thank Richard enough for an amazing afternoon of wine tasting and food. Not only did we learn about local wines, we learned a lot about wine making in general. We never felt rushed along and learned a lot. I would do another tour with Richard when we are back. A MUST DO if you are in the area... More

I highly recommend Richard, Karine and their company. Richard is extremely knowledgeable. He took us into the fields and behind the scenes of the wineries we visited. The most pleasant surprise was the fabulous lunch, which was part of the tour. We did the tour on Sunday, when many wineries are closed, and Richard still came through with a great... More

From the start Richard was entertaining, informative and great company. We were picked up from our residence and taken to a well selected choice of local vineyards that offered an insightful view of history, culture and local anecdotes.

If you are in Nice, do not miss out on Richard's tour of the Bellet region! They were absolutely beautiful and the wine was excellent (make sure to check out the pictures). Richard himself was not only very knowledgeable, but also a very warm friendly guide.
