“Great day out, really interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I'd thoroughly recommend this tour. We had a full day with our guide in a small group (4 of us in total). We visited 3 vineyards and our guide gave us a detailed tour of each and was able to answer all of our questions with ease. We met the owners or managers in each vineyard and tasted 14 different wines, mainly roses and reds as these are the most prevalent in the region. During the day we also had time in Aix-en-Provence for lunch and to explore the pretty town. The tour is well worth booking.

“Great Day!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped in Marseille for one day during our cruise and decided to set up a wine tour. This was a great day wine tasting in Bandol and Cassis with Eric as our guide. Eric was a great guide who was very knowledgable and friendly who tried to make the day excellent for us. We stopped in two wineries in Bandol during the morning which were excellent. Then we stopped for lunch in Cassis and visited another winery in the afternoon. This is a must do if you are in the area. We had an amazing day!

“Very enjoyable day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We did a full day tour with eric, the day was well organised, the wineries of choice were excellent and the lunch stop at cassis was the icing on the cake. There were three wineries with a number of wine tastings at each stop. Eric was a great host, knowledgable, interesting, polite and is willing to discuss the wines whether you're an expert in wine or just a novice looking for a good day. Highly reccomend the experience to anyone staying in marseille. We learnt plenty about the proces involved in making the wine and the regions wines in general.

“Lovely day tasting wine in provence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Two friends and I enjoyed the best day touring a few Provence vineyards with Eric, our super nice, easy-going and knowledgeable guide. We had a gorgeous day driving through the French countryside, tasting and learning about several wines, and generally enjoying chatting with Eric! A great experience. Highly recommended!

“Wine in Bandol with Eric la Rouge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Our very diverse group of international travellers was met promptly at the designated time by Eric who made a point of getting to chat with everyone during the drive. He was quick to notice what was of interest to individuals for their desired wine tour experience and provide information accordingly. Having been on wine tours in various countries, the choice of vineyard is critical, but it is your guide that can really make the tour special. On this day we toured Bandol and Cassis and Eric's knowledge and passion for the wines was clear as he enthusiastically shared his knowledge of viticulture and oenolgy with wit, humor and warmth. He clearly had a great rapport with the owners of the vineyards as they stopped to say hello to our group.

Standing at the vineyard in Bandol with the sun shining warmly and the smell of the earth and the trees, Eric gave us time to take in the vista and slowly let the peaceful ambience settle on us before he took us through the technical aspects of wine making and then into the tasing room. The pace was unhurried and easy, perfect for such a tour. I wish I could have purchased more wines however as I was leaving France the next morning, limited space in luggage was a problem. Eric was kind enough to find and provided me with the name of an importer in my area and hopefully I will be able to obtain some of the Bandol wines here at home.
After the wine tour, Eric drove us down to the Port of Cassis so we could have a few moments to take in the views of this captivating place.
Excellent value, nice balance of information and experience and beautiful fun day.
Thank you so much Eric.
