Dear wine lover and explorer,
|Pascale Bernasse has been named one of the Top 133 Travel Specialists in the world by Condé Nast Traveler|
French Wine Explorers offers guests not just vacations, but authentic luxury experiences in France’s famed wine regions. Our exclusive focus on wine tours in France and Italy is unique, and packages reflect our extensive experience and personal relationships with the area’s finest estates, vintners, guides, and hotels.
While many travel companies offer wine tours amid a myriad of other vacations, French Wine Explorers has one sole occupation: creating and operating impeccable luxury tours to the French wine country. With our intimate knowledge of French wine regions, we do the legwork and handle every detail–from the moment you arrive to when you bid au revoir. And while some wine tour companies focus on only one French wine region, we specialize in all French wine regions, providing guests with the unique insider’s perspective only a French wine tour specialist can provide.
Along with a range of package tours, we also offer French Wine Explorers’ exclusive customized private tour planning service. For these tours, guests design their personal dream getaways to France’s wine country. Travelers can choose from various regions and tour the most exclusive estates, while including everything from cooking classes to spa services to guided city and museum tours. Tours can be multiregional and include deluxe accommodations at the finest hotels or private chateaux, expert guides and luxury transportation.
Pascale, an American of Franco–Persian descent, is a tour and travel industry veteran since 2000. Pierre, a French native with a background in international finance and operations, is managing director of the company. Needless to say travel and enjoying fine wine are both a common denominator for us, and we are always on the search for our next favorite wine. We acquired French Wine Explorers following an extended search for a niche travel company where we could exploit our talents and interests.
After spending considerable time in both France and the United States, we currently call St. Michaels, Maryland our home, and make frequent visits to France to further our relationships with our supplier friends, to enjoy time with our family and our guests, and to stay on the cutting edge of our industry. French Wine Explorers reflects our heritage, interests, experiences, and talents; and our perfectly planned and flawlessly executed tours allow travelers to share and experience their passion for France and its wine country.
We hope you'll join us soon for a great wine and food adventure in France – à bientôt!
