Hooray – France opens its doors!

From June 9th France reopens its doors to all travellers who have been vaccinated against Covid. Restaurants will also be fully open – you just have to be home for 11pm! (curfew ends 19 June) This fun-loving, pleasure addict country will be back on its feet! We have missed you all! – link to French Govt website for latest news see below

Wine chateaux are open for business as usual with all of the sanitary measures in place of course.

We specialise in the smaller independent producer of great wine treasures here in Bordeaux, often just next to very famous neighbours but not at their crazy prices. We do like to organise a mix of properties and now is the chance with fewer visitors to be able to get into the likes of Haut Brion or Lafite that have very little availability normally.

In addition to the usual SIP wine tours offer, I have set up some outdoor options for picnic lunches overlooking the vines, short walks in the vineyards, electric bikes to get some fresh air and private oyster boat cruises while you enjoy white wine and seafood while you watch the sunset on the beautiful city of Bordeaux.

Tempted? You should be….

A bientôt, Nicolle & Co
