This is an exclusive tour for Calvert Woodley customers.

Spend five nights in Bordeaux, meeting the people and seeing the chateaux behind the extraordinary wines of this region.

Take advantage of our 40+ years of relationships and contacts to go "behind the scenes" as so few get to. The timing couldn't be better because you'll be among the first people in the world to taste some of the 2009 vintage, which promises to be one of the best vintages in recent memory.

The tour is designed to provide a pleasurable experience exploring the region made famous by the 1855 classification of Bordeaux Chateau Estates. While you explore impressive Chateaux of the region, you will experience the importance of terroir, history and the talent of many of those involved in world-class wine production today. You will enjoy exclusive access to famous wine Chateaux in the major appellations of Bordeaux. Incorporated into this experience, you will also explore its rich and wonderful gastronomie!

This tour will be hosted by your personal wine coach, Gregoire M. Poirier, a certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers. As an American who spent the formative years of his life being raised in Europe, Greg learned at an early age that wine can be at the cultural center of daily life. His wine industry experience includes over a decade working as a professional wine taster and wine coach, becoming a certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers in 1995. He continues to work with wine producers, importers, distributors, restaurateurs, retailers, and most importantly consumers throughout North America with activities solely dedicated to enhancing wine appreciation through building wine knowledge. He has been interviewed as a wine expert in media markets across the United States.
