Who we are
Chateau Wine Tours is a wine tour company born from a passion for the subject matter, in-depth knowledge at the highest levels and a desire to communicate that knowledge in an enjoyable, fun and relaxed environment. The tours are aimed at wine lovers, not wine snobs.
Whilst tours visit some of the top wineries in the world, since these are beautiful and fascinating in their own right, there is a great emphasis on visiting the smaller boutique and artisan wineries, which make the wines we drink on a normal basis, either at home or in restaurants. Chateau Latour is a fascinating place to visit, but the wines produced are out of reach for most people's pockets. Chateau Villemaurine, a Grand Cru Classé from St Emilion, may on the other hand, just be within reach, and some of the small chateaux around the town of St Emilion or Fronsac, could be drunk on an 'everyday' basis. Tour participants will be able to see 'behind the scenes' in the wineries and discover just what goes on in winemaking - and why.
We have formed a strategic partnership with the well-established Tour Operator Footprint Holidays , and work closely wine producers and holiday residences which have the same exacting standards as our own in order to provide the best possible wine themed holiday experience.
