Mathieu L.

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Rich in the expertise of winemaking in Alsace, Champagne, Bordeaux and South Africa I am able to adapt my explanations for anyone to be able to understand wine in general and more specifically, South African wines.

Note that the tour is made for any level of wine enthusiast, from beginners through to the wine connoisseur and explanations are adjusted according to the specific level of wine knowledge that the guests may hold.

I am a very friendly and charming guide with the subtle French flair that I am accustomed too and will give you tricks on every day wine buying, enjoying and pairing.

Though I have left winemaking for now, I still go to the Champagne region (where my knowledge of wine officially started) to assist with harvesting and vinification yearly.

I look forward to taking you on this unique journey and experience with me. . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Mathieu knows the region, the wines and absolutely everything about its production by heart. He will be your best teacher to learn wine tasting, and you will never drink wine the same way again ! Plus the beautiful region, the lovely lunch, and the extras : don't hesitate !
