France is an agricultural country, and thanks to this, the French countryside offers some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Among the most breath-taking vineyard landscapes in the world are those in France, and the wines they produce are among the most renowned.

 

We have a deep and long-lasting respect for those who work the soil to produce real food and real wine, as it is only these that provide real taste. 

RED, WHITE, AND GREEN

Tasting living wines from living vines, and foods that have been grown locally, in season, without chemical intervention, is the basis of all we do. Our slogan of "the spirit of place through taste" is a celebration of locally produced seasonal foods, and an implicit acknowledgement of terroir. 

PERSONAL CONTACTS AND LOCAL KNOWLEDGE


Our extensive knowledge of France and its people, its vineyards, gardens, villages, and backroads along with an accumulation of nearly 30 years of personal contact with vineyard owners, wine growers, boutique hotels, the most authentic restaurants, bistros and cafés, private castles, local traditions and festivals, makes TASTE TOURS a store of value for unique, personalised, cultural, wine and food tours.


INTIMATE, IN-DEPTH, AND ATTENTIVE TO YOUR NEEDS

In addition to small group wine and gastronomic tours, themes which somehow find their way into everything we do in France, we also organise cultural tours, and can respond to requests for very specific interests. We are attentive to your needs and place your personal comfort above all. Years of experience and a broad background in guiding luxury tours have provided us with a vast resource of first-hand knowledge and know-how.

You can be sure that when you engage our services, or book a tour, we will do everything we can to make your travel dreams a reality, and your comfort a priority. You're in good hands, so you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride.
