GOING ON A WINE-ORIENTED VACATION?

I CAN HELP
Though beach lovers might claim otherwise, I believe there is no vacation more rewarding than one involving the exploration of a wine region, and I can relate this from personal experience. But how does one actually go about visiting wine estates, making appointments with winegrowers, discovering fine restaurants, and landing suitable accommodations? Depending on which wine region you choose to visit, the amount of pre-planning differs greatly, so you might need some assistance.

Here is what I offer:
  • Private consultation on different types of wine-related itineraries that are most favorable to pursue, tailored to a person's (or couple's) needs and desires --- after all, some people prefer a short driving visit to Napa, while others prefer to spend a week being guided (on tour) through Tuscany.
  • Advice on what to expect from visiting different wine regions, including (1) costs of visits and sampling wines (if any); (2) proper etiquette in interacting with winegrowers and owners; (3) times of the year best suited for travelling to a specific region; and (4) the amount of time it takes to visit a specified number of estates.
  • Information on contacting estates and making appointments (many wineries, such as those in Bordeaux, do not allow people to simply drop in for a visit; they need to be contacted well in advance of arrival).
For my part, I have organized countless wine-related adventures!
