Outstanding wine tour

We joined three other couples to visit the Macon and Beaujolais wine regions. The guide Olivier is educated in wine making and freely shared his knowledge while navigating through the villages and vineyards. Both tastings were informative about the differing terroirs, which Olivier elaborated throughout the day. He also conducts Rhone tours, and we recommend him without hesitation

Good guide!

We took a tour of Beajolais & Macon with Olivier. We visited several small wineries where Kanpai has relationships and really got to soak up Olivier's knowledge of the terroirs of Pouilly-Fuisse, Fleurie, and the Chateau de la Chaise. I have to say we learned quite a bit and certainly enjoyed all of the wonderful wines we tried!
We really enjoyed our tour day and highly recommend Kanpai's services!
