What you get when you travel with us:

  • Guidance and instruction throughout the trip by Annette and Christian Schiller, a husband and wife team. We both are wine enthusiasts, seasoned wine tasters and wine educators, and know the wine regions in France and Germany like the back of our hands - we lived there for many years! We are fluent in English, German, and French, and are experienced travelers. When you do a tour with ombiasy Wine Tours you never get a paid guide, you always get to travel with us.
  • We always travel in a small group to make the experience more like traveling with a bunch of friends, and to get a better and more intimate look at the behind the scenes of the wineries / châteaux.
  • Travel in the wine regions by luxury air-conditioned motor coach.
  • Accommodation in 3-star, 4-star, or 5-star hotels depending on availability in the regions, including breakfast buffets. Wine regions in Europe are for the most part pretty rural and the availability of standard international hotel chains is very limited. Where international hotels are not available, we always choose charming, family-run boutique hotels, typical of the region. Very often those hotels are in historic buildings, where strict building codes apply that make any standardization impossible. All hotels are categorized by the government and the amenities correspond to the star system. However in some of the smaller hotels room sizes vary, elevators are impossible to install, and internet connections can be shaky.
  • Lunches and dinners sometimes at excellent gourmet restaurants, at other times at typical local restaurants to get you a feel for regional specialities.
  • Our wine tours include wine pairing lunches and dinners right at the wineries / châteaux with the owners or winemakers. You will enjoy gourmet and regional food, deliciously matched to the wines served which also include older vintages. Dining as a private guest at a renowned winery or Bordeaux château is one of the ultimate experiences that you can have and which is not open to the independent traveler.
  • You get access to wine estates normally not open to visitors.
  • Expert wine tastings at top wine estates and châteaux as well as barrel tastings, vertikal tasting, etc. depending on availability.
  • You will meet the owners and winemakers and are treated to private tastings with them. Since they are our friends - you get the access!
  • Guided city tours and sightseeing tours of spectacular historical sites.
  • You will get a very personal, authentic experience and total immersion in the particular wine region.
