We want to share our passion for wine with you!
We are winners of the prestigious Best of Wine Tourism Gold award in the Bordeaux region for vineyard visits and sustainable tourism at our headquarters Chateau Feely. Thanks to great customer reviews we have won the Tripadvisor certificate of excellence for five years running.
Five reasons to choose French Wine Adventures
Excellence and value for money: we are based in South West France and we are in the winegrowing business so we offer
you exceptional quality and great value for money. Having travelled extensively as wine tourists ourselves in France, South Africa, North America and New Zealand, and having done many wine courses we know what works and what doesn't.
Deep wine knowledge and an insider's contacts in the region: We live here and we know these vineyards.
A warm welcome accompanied by enthusiasm and fun all along the way:
We, Seán and Caro Feely, took the plunge to follow our dream of
growing and making wine in South West France in 2005. We were welcomed
by a group of exceptional winemakers, not only in the wines they make,
but also in their hospitality. We soon realised that sharing this
idyllic location, the exceptional people that populate it and our
passion for wine and wine-making gave us a thrill.
'An insider's experience': We offer you a true
'insider's experience': the winemakers we visit typically work their own
vineyards and wineries and know us as friends.
Fantastic french food, wine & accommodation: The South West excels in food and wine. Our fine choice of accommodation complements this perfectly.
