Pierre picked us up at our B&B for a half-day wine tour of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. He grew up in the region and has an in-depth knowledge of the terroir, climate and the entire wine-making process. His English is excellent. He took us to the ruins of the Chateauneuf-du Pape castle and to 2 wineries, where we met the owners, and had superb private wine tastings. We were treated like royalty. An unforgettable experience and certainly highly recommend!

We recently did this half day tour with Pierre. It was excellent. We highly recommend it. Pierre picked us at our hotel (so we didn't have to drive back after tasting several wines!! ;-) !!). Pierre is a native and lives in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and this makes the tour really unique. He puts all his love for his home town into the tour. Pierre's english is excellent and his is very flexible. We stopped everywhere we wanted. The additional interesting thing for us (my wife and I are chemical engineers) is that Pierre knows a lot about the wine making process and having the keys to the wineries he takes you he shows you all the equipment and explains in detail everything. It was great! In addition, both wineries that Pierre took us to had incredible wines, of course!! We will return in the winter season and do a black truffles tour with Pierre!

We spent a day touring with Le Gout des Autres in late May in Chateauneuf. It was wonderful. We visited La Nerthe, Vieux Telegraphe, Les Cailloux, etc. and had a fantastic lunch at La Mere Germaine. It was a day that was well organised and provided just the right mix of wine tasting/teaching/appreciation with beautiful scenery and historical context. I would definitely recommend using Le Gout des Autres.

Although our time in Orange was short Pierre Fernandez of Wine Prestige Tour made us feel as though we had lived there all of our lives. Pierre introduced us to several wines that have changed my entire view of CDP for the better. I had no idea of the quality and finesse of the white wine produced there. We ended the tour with a stop at The Best Vintage Caveau to capture our favorites for shipping in what we like to call the "naughty box" . It was more like stopping by an old friends cellar for tasting - Monsieur - a heartfelt Thank you!

Best Regards,
Cheri & Frank

The tour and wine tasting Pierre Fernandez provided during our visit to Chateau Sixtine was wonderful. He was obviously very knowledgable and extremely interested in providing an excellent tour. Very enjoyable. Norris/Parsons Nl Canada.
