Just enough to get a great feel of the historic setting of Chambord and the wines of the region. Small group was wonderful. Our wine expert guide taught us a lot about the wines and was able to explain every aspect of our visit in easy to understand terms . Clement was a wonderful driver and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed . Very welcoming!

It was nice, but definitely not worth the cost. We did have a good time, and I would have been happy to pay about half of what I did, but no more than that for what you are getting from this.

Karl-Dominique was a fantastic guide, and we couldn’t have had a better day in France than the one we spent in his company. We were also grateful to spend time in the company of winemakers at Marc Bredif and Domaine de Montcy, particularly at the latter. Sophie, who fed us lunch at Domaine de Montcy, was an incredibly generous hostess and patient teacher who took us from vineyard to winery to the tasting room. We’ll never forget the couple hours we spent with her and regret that her winery doesn’t (as of now) export to the US. The wines are delicious and truly opened our eyes, and of course our palates, to the complexities and potential of some varietals we’d written off. What a fantastic experience! Tres bien et merci beaucoup!

Ho visitato lunedì pomeriggio questo castello immenso, stupendo , con dei giardini ben curati, un parco enorme e gli interni favolosi che per il poco tempo che avevo non sono riuscita a vedere tutto, in compenso ho visitato il parco con una golfcar che mi ha permesso di godere della vista meravigliosa del castello

A neat little trip through the French countryside took us to the Chateau du Chambord and a cozy lunch spot prior to finishing off the day at Plou and Fils, a 500 year old family vineyard. Everything was lovely and well organized - the only draw back was that Chateau du Chambord was under significant construction so the outside was obscured by scaffolds. The interior, however, is so neat and the tour that they have organized with the tablets is amazing.
