from the Ensenada/Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico episode
Filming in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico was on my to-do list for a long time, so you could imagine how excited I was when Josh reached out to help make that dream a reality! As a tour guide he knows all the ins and outs of the Valle and Ensenada, from world class restaurants, amazing bottles of Nebbiolo, to some of the best roadside fish tacos you'll ever have! Of course there were some hard days along the way but it's nothing a bottle of Côte Rôtie couldn't fix! Come along with Josh and I as we talk behind the scenes of filming and remember why the Valle and Ensenada are so special!

from the Bordeaux, France Episode
The great thing about the city of Bordeaux is that it acts as a central hub for the wine region. The trains go in and out of the city, there are plenty of hotels and restaurants and things to do, and there are literally wineries in every direction!
LA CITÉ DU VIN
A wine museum? You bet! This place truly is an amazing feat; the architecture is really innovative, and the museum is a blast! Learn about the history of wine, see regions from around the world, talk to master sommeliers, and smell wine aromas in interactive exhibits!
Feel like seeing Bordeaux from the sky? Head to Château Venus and take a private plane tour. All the famous regions and Châteaux of Bordeaux can be seen that much better from the sky. Then stick around and try the wines!
This winery is located in the area of Bordeaux between the two rivers that's home to a lot of the hidden gems of the region. The family who runs it is beyond hospitable, makes amazing wines, and the property is stunning; they even have guest houses available!
Another wonderful family winery, visit their home and estate for a tasting in Entre-deux-mers M-F 9-5.
St. Émilion is a name that sets wine collectors' hearts racing, and this historic town is the center of it. Spend a day exploring the restaurants, shops, and the famous monolithic church!
Visit the Moreaud family, taste some beautiful St. Émilion wine and maybe even take your own wine blending class like I did!
BORDEAUX SUR L'EAU
I can't recommend booking a Bordeaux boat tour with Bordeaux Sur L'Eau enough! Seeing Bordeaux from the water is an amazing experience, and they do a great job providing food, wine, and music. Once the lights go down, the city skyline and bridges are magical to see from the water!
