After doing a lot of research online ahead of our visit to Bordeaux this past summer (we stayed in St. Emilion), Mr. Markham's name kept appearing as a highly recommended wine guide. I am elated that we chose him for our two days of visiting chateaux in St. Emilion, Pomerol and Medoc, which were spectacular! Dewey is a legend in... More

You will not go wrong with booking your tour with Dewey Markham. We had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with him in the appellation of Margaux. We booked with him about a year prior to our visit, to ensure we could do the things we wanted to do, and on a Saturday, too, when special arrangements needed to be... More

Prior to booking our tour with Dewey I read many reviews on Tripadvisor and wondered if Dewey could really live up to all his excellent reviews. Simply put, he did and then some. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. The morning started out with Dewey meeting us at our hotel, Château Cordeillan-Bages. We spent the day at... More

We spent a day with Dewey touring St. Emilion chateaux. We could not have hoped for a better experience. Starting with before and after the tour: when you book with Dewey, he takes great care to discuss what you're looking for and your experience with wine in order to custom-tailor a tour. And during the tour itself, he provides a... More

Our group has traveled to wine regions across the globe and Dewey Markham is the very travel guide (not just wine travel guide) I've ever met. Quite simply, Dewey is the best investment you can make for doing a wine trip to the Bordeaux region. Dewey is not just incredibly knowledgeable (he has written two books on Bordeaux wine, one...

Dewey was fantastic. He will tailor a tour for all experience levels. He gathered information about our wine experience and what we enjoy. We received excellent service. He even helped us return our rental car. I felt very safe and would never have seen the fantastic Chateau's on our own. I will recommend DMJ to anyone visiting Bordeaux.

My wife and I spent the day with Dewey touring the Medoc region in Bordeaux. We visited three high end vineyards and had a great lunch in a local restaurant. What is truly amazing is Dewey's knowledge of the complete wine making process and how easily he explains it. This tour is a MUST for anyone that wants to understand... More

The two days we spent with Dewey were some of the most memorable in three weeks of travelling all over France. We were a group of three couples that started planning with Dewey months in advance deciding where we would go. We told him what we wanted to see and then he added a few properties of his own that...

Dewey was amazing. Prior to our trip, he asked me a ton of questions to make sure he knew our preference as it was just my husband and myself. It was the best wine tasting tour we have ever done. Dewey is an acclaimed author and educator on wine. Check out his website to see all his credentials. He is... More

I only had two days in Bordeaux and wanted to maximize the opportunity. To help make that happen I engaged Dewey to arrange visiting some off the beaten track chateaus in the Pessac Leognan region. I made the absolute best choice. Dewey is incredibly well informed, an engaging talker and willing to answer any question around not just wine but... More
