“An amazing education on wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

This was by far the most educational session I have had on all of the aspects that impact on the taste and quality of wine. Anne was absolutely engaging and her passion for and knowledge of wine is unparalleled. There were five of us and she went out of her way to accommodate us and give a remarkable session of information and tasting. We tried several wine tasting venues and she was head and shoulders above the rest. If you want to know about wine, this is a must-do visit.

“Superb visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Excellent wine tasting at this negociant/producer. Knowledgable staff gave an informative tutored tasting. They were also extremely obliging in arranging shipping of the wines we purchased.
It clearly helps that the wines they sell are top notch CDR and CDP, but nonetheless the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere is superior to many tastings we have sampled.

“Friendly and knowledge host coupled with excellent wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We were booked on to an 11am private tour and tasting (Degustation) The hostess was extremely friendly and answered all our thousand questions!!

The Chateau was great to tour and learn more about. The hostess even offered to take photos of us during our tour. We started by learning about the 4 types of soil (terroir) and then walked inside to see how it all made and stored.

We then tasted 4 wines and even learnt how to properly taste wine. It was an amazing experience and we purchased 3 gorgeous wines to drink at home and remember this amazing experience.

The hostess certainly made the experience memorable and we will be coming back for sure!!

“Top quality and expert service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

By far the most informative tour I've had since I started wine tasting. Anne was surely the most knowledgeable guide I've had thus far. I'm sure there are others but they didn't share as much as Anne did -- from soil to spitting, though I didn't do much spitting -- the wine was much too good to waste. I learned so much at Ogier and highly recommend it. I will definitely plan a return visit!

“Anne gave us the best winetasting, ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

I love Chateauneuf du Pape wines, but I think I tasted the best at Ogier. We had a guided tour with Anne, who was so enthusiastic and happy to share all the abundance of knowlegde that she had about wines in general, and Ogier wines in special to a group of 13 ladies. Some of us wine-amatours, others wine professionals, but she managed to reach out and make us all interested and included. We tasted 4 wines grown on different terroirs, this was really an eyeopener to how different the wine tasted just with different soil. If you get a chance, and want to learn more about this fantastic wine district, stop at Ogier, and if you get Anne as your guide you know that you are in for a treat.
