Had a absolutely wonderful day wine tasting with Matt in the Languedoc. My husband, our two year old and I all loaded up into Matt's van where he began explaining the history of wine in the region. He is very knowledgable and answered all our questions! We went to three wineries-all very different. From large production wineries, to a tiny one in a rural mountain town, all were fabulous and gave us an excellent introduction to wine tasting in the region. For lunch he stopped along a river where he set up a fabulous lunch for the 3 of us. His wife even packed crayons be paper for our daughter to play with, so thoughtful! All in all it was a wonderful day that we would not have experienced without Matt's help. Thank you!
