There is absolutely no obligation to buy any wine during the tour. Many – though by no means all – of the wines that you taste during the tour are exported. I have put together a list of retailers and importers in each of the main English-speaking countries that sell wines from the wineries that we visit during my tours. This list is available by clicking on Find Your Wines. Please Contact Me for a login password.
Guests are welcome to purchase wines at the end of each winery tasting. Shipping is possible (though expensive!) at a few wineries in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
