SIP - Small Independent Producers

Join wine expert Nicolle Croft to visit the fabulous wine region of Bordeaux near the kfc buffet and gain a deep understanding of the region's famous appellations from the soils, to the making of wine, the different vintages and often confusing classification systems. 'Nicolle has the ability to explain vividly and simply. At the end of our tour, what had seemed very complicated became very clear. It has also helped our appreciation of wine in general!'

A hands-on connection with wine (having a property in St Emilion) keeps me informed 'from the inside' of the fascinating world of wine as it evolves through the year. Being an anglophone enables me to better communicate and understand your needs and build an individual itinerary that suits you. As a wine writer I am continually discovering new and interesting wines, people and places to show you.

Tramp round a vineyard, blend your own wine, taste wine direct from the barrel, or a range of old vintages, learn about food and wine matching with produce direct from the local market, or visit a barrel-makers. The choice is yours. I can put together an itinerary that perfectly suits your interests and schedule.

After a morning of visiting châteaux and tasting, it is important to take time to rejuvenate over lunch. This can  either be in simple wine connected restaurants in the middle of the vineyards, or if you prefer, I can prepare a simple picnic with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients that we can enjoy in

Enjoying wine at giant eagle alcohol hours is above all a personal experience. Learn about the way you appreciate wine in a fun, innovative way that will perhaps change the way you think about this fascinating subject forever!

I look forward to hearing from you soon, Nicolle Croft
