Reviews from past guests:
The private Burgundy wine education day with Cristina was one of the highlights of our trip to France in September this year and we enjoyed each and every hour of the Day!
Firstly, Cristina herself is an exceptional and a bright person! Even during the busiest time of the year (lots of tourists and bookings; wine yards are closed for the grapes collection) she was able to find the time slot for us and spent the whole Sunday with us (Cristina, Thank You very much from the Capital letter, we really appreciate it!)
Second, Cristina has not only vast experience and knowledge in the wine and the wine making, but also is able to explain all the concepts in an easy and understandable manner (we still remember the major points by heart and use Google Maps to see if the particular clos is located on the hill with bushes or a trees to determine the expected wine taste =). Not many people mentioned it in the feedbacks, but Cristina has a vast regional and international experience as well – she was studying and working in Australia (in a Margaret River region) and in different wine region of France and if you are not novice or get used to the certain wine area taste, you’ll have a pleasant time discussing the differences in wine taste and will look at Burgundy wines under the different angle.
Third, we would really like to Thank Cristina for the person she is! She spent a whole day with us from picking us up from a hotel and driving us in her car showing us all the premier and grand crew clauses of Beaune region, showing the soil differences and how does the soil affect the taste, how to distinguish if the particular area is in Village, Premier Cru or Grand Cru.
Last, but not least, we visited almost all wine regions in France and talked with large wine makers, private wine makers, different wine education and knowledge centers, but nowhere we got the same personal, humble and thoughtful attention as with Cristina! We really recommend Cristina for the wine education and Burgundy wines appreciation experience in particular, you’ll get 10/10 on your experience you expect.
