Just to let you know that we all had such a wonderful time on Max's tour! It was lovely to meet Max and Ben had such a great time. I organised this for Ben as he loves wine and is interested in viticulture generally. He loved it.
We also very much appreciated the care and interest Max showed in our 3 year old son, Daniel, on the tour. He is still asking if we are seeing Max today!!! It makes such a difference to us when we are ALL made to feel so welcome and comfortable!
We are already planning our next trip back to this beautiful part of the world and Burgundy, Dijon etc are no.1 on the list! We will keep in touch as Ben's parents will be hopefully also visiting at some point.
Thanks again! Bonjournee and until next time!

Thank you so very much for your in depth information on wines in the Bourgogne region of France. I cannot wait to get through the laundry so that I might post a blog on my NexionTown website going out to over 4, 000 agents about the wonderful service!
Thanks again for the wine, both at lunch and the one we drank our last night in the Chateau! Au Revoir until we meet again!
