...." Tracy organised and conducted a thoroughly enjoyable private wine tasting tour for our small party. We were particularly impressed with her knowledge, enthusiasm and easy, clear communication skills; as well as the care she took to tailor the visits and tastings to our specific requirements. The day included big hitting villages and domaines, however, we were delighted with an introduction to less well known (and affordable!) wines and growers, as we'd requested. We firmly recommend Tracy & will use again.
