We did a private ‘Wine Enthusiast Tour.’
Our group of 5 friends were well taken of by Brice and his friend. Brice told us he normally does the tour himself but he recently broke his ankle and was getting around in crutches. He didn’t miss a beat though (and thank you Brice for not having to cancel on us because of your ankle – it was a highlight of our trip to Paris!).
His good friend (my apologies but I don’t remember his name!) did the driving and they were both wonderful hosts to a fantastic day. Our tour took us to the Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume regions of the Loire Valley. Although our group varied in the knowledge of wine making and wine tasting, Brice did a great job in introducing and teaching us to the art of wine in these regions and in France. We each ended the day with such an appreciation for the history and craftsmanship of producing wine in this country. The cheese tasting was delicious and so informative as to the process of making goat cheese. It was wonderful meeting the farmers and producers of the goat farm and the two vineyards we visited.
Brice’s depth of knowledge, his enthusiasm, and true love for French wine was very much appreciated. He took great care of us throughout the day and was the perfect host. If you are even thinking about doing any of the tours that Paris Wine Day tours offers, just book it. You will not be disappointed in the least. It will end up being one of the highlights of your trip!
Date of experience: November 2023
