There, you will enjoy a tasting of one of the best cognac and Pineau des Charentes (between November and March 31, you will also see the stills in action) whose intense aromas will challenge your palate.


At lunchtime, you will discover the delicious local cuisine. The numerous beef and duck specialties will surely delight your taste buds (there will also be vegetarian options).


In the afternoon, you will enjoy a visit and a tasting at a prestigious Cognac House in the heart of Cognac. Again, your senses will be tested.


On this unforgettable day, your guide will uncover the secrets and the history of the Cognac production, and you will discover the beautiful landscapes of Charente.

BORDEAUX

languages :
Espagnol/Spanish, Français/French, Anglais/English

I was born and raised in the Bordeaux area, few steps away from the picturesque village of Saint-Emilion and its endless vineyards. In my family, wine runs through the veins. My grandfather was a wine-maker, my brother manages a winery, and my cousin sells wine. Working in the fine food industry abroad (US and Latin America) for twelve years, I decided to change my life and career from marketing director to professional tour guide, coming back to my beautiful region to share its treasures. Passionate about meeting with people from different countries and cultures, becoming a guide was quite a destiny, especially after organizing several amateur wine tours for friends visiting from the US. Today I am never tired of showing the beauty, culture and bustle of the Bordeaux region. Holding a level 3 WSET (certificate in wines and spirits education trust), I can lead wine-oriented tours in the Medoc, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and many other areas of the Bordeaux region, in Spanish, French and English languages. I also work with two other guides and wine experts, Laura and Laetitia. Exploring my region with visitors is always a new and inspiring experience. I invite you to follow me in the top wineries and discover the Bordeaux area through the eyes of a native. NB: My tours are always tailor-made to suit your needs and interests.
