Bordeaux – Meeting the First Growths
One of the best parts of my job is the trips I take to research destinations. My most recent was to the holy grail of wine regions, Bordeaux.
This trip was focused on nurturing relationships with key partners to guarantee exceptional experiences for those who choose to travel with us. The region is enjoying a renaissance, as well as a fresh approach to oenotourism. If you are considering traveling to Bordeaux, there is no better time.
While many of the First Growth estates are reluctant to welcome visitors, building strong relationships with these wineries has given us the key to rarely opened doors. We are working closely with our favorite producers in the region to help them understand how to best welcome our guests.
By meeting with the owners, managers, winemakers, ambassadors, and hosts, we ensure they are as excited to have you as you are to meet them. In return, they open their doors to us and share not only their finest vintages but also their friendship and knowledge, leaving you, our guest, with a distinct feeling of enrichment. Our partners are excited to have us visit, and keen to share a taste of their renowned elixir.
Our portfolio of special access in the region is second to none.
First-hand visits are essential to our success and there is a lot more to these trips than inspecting hotels, restaurants, and wineries. We are taking the time to meet our partners face to face and see for ourselves whether a certain experience is worth the investment. Hotels are always in a state of flux, and no restaurant review can substitute sitting down to a meal unannounced to get a real sense of what is going on in the kitchen. We use this knowledge to ensure the best possible experiences.
Every year we refine our offerings to enable us to provide the best, most relevant experiences for those who trust us to take care of their wine-inspired vacation.
We are looking out for you.
