Meet Benoît in Alsace!

After a career in international sales management for large companies, I decided to create an

tourism, wine & gastronomy, and meeting people!
I pride myself on offering exclusive & private tours and other services including off-the-wall activities
to demanding travelers. My tours are fully customized to meet your expectations and my goal is to
make you live a unique experience! You will meet authentic, generous, and passionate people, and

Meet Nicolle in Bordeaux!

With SIP Wine Tours discover the real Bordeaux, the classified châteaux but also the region’s best smaller producers where we get face-to-face with the winemaker.

Bordeaux is known for its Grand Cru Classé Châteaux, and we will visit these, but the real heart of Bordeaux is their ‘petits producteurs’ the SIPS – Small Independent Producers. With over 30 years of experience in Bordeaux, and on the ‘inside track’ (being married to a St Emilion wine producer) Nicolle is certainly able to take you off the beaten path to reveal some inside secrets and let you discover some wine treasures.

Be it on the Right Bank on the rolling hills around the medieval village of Saint-Emiliion, or the flatter Left Bank with its grandiose châteaux in the famous villages of Margaux, Saint-Julien or Pauillac – the complexity of this world-renowned wine region will be unravelled for you in a day or two day unforgettable wine tour of the Bordeaux region.

Meet Robert & Joy in Burgundy!

Uncover the true Burgundy and unravel the complexities of its terroir, history and tradition. With Burgundy Discovery, you will do just that. Walk and drive through the vineyards as wine lists come to life; meet small family producers, many following 6 generations of winegrowing tradition; taste amazing organic and biodynamic wines, rare to find outside the region. Whilst we have 4000+ vignerons, very few open to the public for tasting.

Based in Beaune, our tours are private and personalised, for individuals or groups, informal, informative and fun. Established since 2003, we have built great relationships and love to share our in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm for Burgundy and its wines, food and lifestyle. We look forward to sharing it with you!
