French Wine Explorers, America's leading luxury French wine tour company, is offering its most exciting tour season ever in 2015. The tours include the ultimate in luxury accommodations, meals at Michelin-starred restaurants and private chateaux, and feature France's most exclusive and prestigious wine estates. The 2015 schedule includes five scheduled departures, plus private and customized wine vacations to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, the Rhône Valley, Provence, the Loire Valley, and Paris.
Bordeaux and Burgundy are the focus of the 2015 season. The Bordeaux Prestige Tour is the ultimate wine tour experience, including VIP tastings of all five First Growth chateaux (Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, Haut-Brion, Mouton Rothschild) and the most legendary estates of Pomerol, Sauternes and Saint Emilion. The Grand Cru Tour of Burgundy is an in-depth exploration of the Côte d'Or's finest estates and a unique opportunity to taste the 32 Grand Crus of Burgundy, as well as experience special winemakers' meals and exclusive tastings at some of the best estates of the region.
The Maryland-based company has been acclaimed by the international travel and wine press, and Pascale Bernasse, President of French Wine Explorers, has been awarded one of the coveted spots on Condé Nast Traveler's List of Top Travel Specialists since 2011. Her extensive wine and travel industry connections open the doors to top wineries and private estates for their guests, providing visitors an exclusive insider's view not available to the public.
"We are excited to release our 2015 tour dates early, as our 2014 group dates sold out so quickly," notes Bernasse.
The group size of 10 guests maximum keeps the tours intimate and ensures personal attention. All tours include deluxe, air conditioned motor transportation, luxury hotels, gourmet meals with premium wines, all wine tastings, sightseeing, and services of a bilingual wine expert guide throughout. Prices range from US$6900.00 to US$7200.00 per person, double occupancy, for the land-only packages.
