Nick was an amazing wine guide on our tour through Burgundy! His eloquence, knowledge of wine and humor made it a very fun and engaging dialogue over our days together in Burgundy. Thanks again for everything...we really had an unforgettable and amazing trip with you. We look forward to receiving your recommendations and wine order of the excellent Burgundy 2015 vintage div
Nick, can’t emphasise enough how much we enjoyed our time with you in France! Your knowledge of wine is so expansive. Your ability to tailor the trip to our interests was very customer oriented. You planned and scheduled tastings to exclusive vineyards as well as stopping at unknown wineries in a small village to secure a tasting while driving down the road. Your vast familiarity with the lay of the land, so to speak, as we visited Regional to Grand Cru plots was so appreciated. Your lunch and dinner reservations were one of the highlights of our trip! This was our second time touring with you and we look forward to another visit as you always provide new adventures! Thanks so much,
“Nick’s knowledge of the Burgundy region, its history and its wine, is unsurpassed. It is a pleasure to travel with a guide who makes everything so easy and so special. From the close-up experience of the Clos de Vougeot and the famous Chevaliers de Tastevin to the cellars of Drouhin, Nick’s personable manner, relationships and experience in the wine trade made our trip outstanding.”
My professional experience in wine and tourism has been long and varied and has included, amongst others, working as a wine buyer and sommelier for boutique hotels, putting together wine lists for restaurants, a specialised wine tour guide for luxury hotel barges, a « wine hunter » for Scandinavian importers as well as organising and conducting wine-tastings to Wine Societies in the UK, Germany and Holland. I have also completed my WSET Level 3 and and obtained a certificate in Advanced Tasting Techniques from the Wine University in Suze-la-Rousse". I love sharing my knowledge of wine and spirits with people interested in the topics. I have a passion for how wine is made, from the methods used to the history of the grapes.
