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.

We organised a day tour of Bandol wineries with Richard of Bandol and Riviera Wine Tours. The arrangements were easily and efficiently done over the internet from Australia. Richard arrived promptly at our B&B at 9.30 for a delightful day's tour. We visited 3 very different vineyards. The first was a small family vineyard, the second a much larger winery... More

Beautifully organised by Richard and Karine - the Bandol Dream Team - we went to Domaines Bunan in the late morning to sample delicious award winning rosé wine with the owners followed by a stunning lunch at the Michelin Starred restaurant in Hostellerie Bérard in nearby Le Cadir d'Azure. Everything was arranged to perfection, cannot recommend them enough. Only downside... More

We were on this tour while in port in Toulon, France for the day. This wine tour with Richard is not to be missed, he knows his wine and wineries in the area and loves speaking and teaching it. It is a very personal tour of wineries that the ships tour buses cannot reach, due to road sizes. We were... 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.

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.
