Rustic Vines Wine Tours Bordeaux - Wine Tours of Bordeaux, Saint Emilion & Medoc. Bike Tours of Bordeaux.
My name is Tim Cowley. I'm an ex professional rugby player from New Zealand who made the Leap to Europe about 12 years ago.
Through my time in Europe my appetite for travel grew.
After retiring from rugby a few years ago I decided to follow my passion for wine, travel, and the French culture. Bordeaux, for me seemed like the perfect place to capture everything I loved.
After just a few months here I knew I'd made the right decision. Bordeaux had it all.
It presented me with everything that I loved in a place. A close coastline, amazing wine, great food, classic french culture, thousands of vineyards, and a city rich in history with beauty to match.
As an experienced traveller and someone who enjoys socialising and relates well with people from all backgrounds, I knew creating something like Rustic Vines will give other travellers to Bordeaux a chance to get the most out of their time here.
I want Rustic Vines to be about people feeling comfortable about knowing nothing about wine and can just come on a tour and have a great time and still take away some knowledge about this art of making great wine.
