Authentic Burgundy & Sancerre Wine Tours


I have lived in France for over 20 years and although I have worked in pretty much all the wine-growing regions, my passion for great wine, food, history and culture, made it an easy decision to settle in this stunning part of France, famed the world over for its extraordinary wines and traditional, hearty cuisine. 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 guide for luxury hotel barges, a « wine hunter » for Scandinavian importers as well as organising and conducting wine-tastings in France and to Wine Societies in the UK, Germany and Holland. Professional training also includes « Perfecting tasting techniques » at the wine university of Suze-la-Rousse and the WSET level 3 course. The Grapes & Corks project was born from a desire to share this knowledge with others through unique tailor-made wine tours to Chablis & Beaune, as well as to the famous vineyards of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Our long experience and intimate knowledge of each of these areas allows us to take guests off-the-beaten track so that they get a real feel for the region and its wines, its cuisine and stunning landscapes. The tours cover all aspects of wine-making from pruning techniques in the vineyard to the ageing of the wines in oak barrels. Of course you will have the opportunity to taste all of the these fine wines at the winery and we even arrange shipment of your favourite wines from the winery to your home. We look forward to seeing you very soon on one of our wine tours in France

What do our guest Say?

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,

Joe & Andi Kafka

“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.”
