“Our tour of the Loire Valley vineyards with Patrick was a delightful and delicious excursion. The countryside and vineyards were beautiful and interesting, and Patrick is a knowledgeable and articulate guide, a good driver and translator, and he’s is a lot of fun. We highly recommend his tours, as well as his book – French Vineyards – which is full of good information and wonderful photography.” – Carolyn & Mike Stone, Keswick, Virginia
