It was a perfect day & he winery Bertrand took 7 of us to was a gem. Not crazy about the vino, but the place was so lovely & Bertrand really took his time to explain the wine-making process to us. We all got a bit tipsy as we sipped outside, then on to his home where his wife (i think?) prepared an absolutely wonderful meal for us—5* @ least, & couldn’t visit, tho regret no doggy bag:)) Bertrand treated us to a stop in a beautiful Medieval town which besides being so special helped us walk off some of the calories we ate, then dropped off in centre of MPL, right near where we wer picked up. In our mo. in MPL, most definitely a highlight & well worth it…We were supposed to visit another winery, but unanimously, after 1st one, rose & red wine with lunch, we all agreed: “non!” & happily le Bertrand drive us all back to town.

J.B. was fantastic. He was informative, engaging, and thorough in his tour. The winery tour was great - getting to see a smaller operation and learn about its roots made us feel like we were getting to see a "behind-the-scenes" view of this region of France. The same can be said for our Oyster stop. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting this area.

Bertrand is a wonderful guide. We visited 2 vineyards and tasted excellent wines, learned a great deal about the Pic St Loup appellation, history, the varieties of grapes, the terrior, and protocols. A great value for a completely enjoyable day.

Our guide was super passionate and knowledgeable about the area. He went that extra mile to make it a special and memorable experience. Great day!

Very informative. excellent and personal guide. defiantly recommend. the lunch was also very very good!
