Basilicata and Puglia Food and Wine Experience with Jetsetter
Lynn and I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how very much we have enjoyed recounting with friends and colleagues just how wonderful your wine and food tour of Puglia was for us. As you know, much of my motivation was professional since I import wines from the region. My goal was to acquire a greater knowledge of Puglian wines ;meet producers who might be interested in doing business and generally enjoy the region's many attributes. You delivered on all counts. Thanks to visits included in your tour, I was able to acquire import rights to two of the region's finest producers. Ivan of Tenute Rubino will be joining me in Seattle this coming September to introduce his wines to my customers. On the social side, we found the small group to be absolutely perfect. As a result we now have 8 new friends who we are sharing experiences with on a near weekly basis. I hope you are well. We look forward to scheduling another Robertson Wine Tour in the coming year.
Best wishes, Bob Stevens

Exceptional wine experience for two world travellers. Chile, Mendoza and Buenos Aires.
“Robertson Wine Tours provides an experience that is as close to perfect as any human can get. Attention to every detail, timing and selection of sites to visit, all done with care and kindness. We have travelled in many parts of this planet during the past several decades, and never, have we had such a delightful, delicious, relaxing and insightful experience. This is a rare time when the phrase, "above and beyond the call of duty" is absolutely true! Gratitude in large measure to Tim and all who guided, drove, and helped in all ways."

Once-in-a-lifetime wine touring experience with Robertson Wine Tours
"We enjoyed an once-in-a-lifetime wine touring experience with Robertson Wine Tours. Tim architected a great itinerary of world-class accommodations, unparalleled private wine tastings and exceptional restaurant bookings. And he added numerous small personalized touches such as a private wine tasting, a hilarious hands on cooking class with an amazing chef and a two hour tasting in the cellars of one of the most famous wine makers in Argentina. If you want to learn about and experience South American wines, Robertson Wine Tours is absolutely the way to go."

"Tim Thanks so much for everything. I don't remember a single part of the package that you didn't manage to get absolutely spot on, well worth the money. The wines in Chile, wow, just amazing. I think I was most blown away by the whites that I tried, Mendoza, though, you were totally spoiling me … and I loved every minute of it. I can say right now, that my taste buds and olfactory functions have never been so alive. I've never seen so much depth in wine (or food, for that matter) in my life."

"What can I say ... thank you, and your team, for a wonderful wine experience in Chile and Argentina. It surpassed all of our dreams. Your staff were very knowledgeable, reliable, and courteous, the wineries visited were fantastic - a very varied selection in terms of size, technology, and the wines they produced - including the bio-diverse vineyard. In an age where time and holidays are such precious items it was tremendous to be able to utilise your vast knowledge and experience in putting together a superb itinerary that was executed without fault and delivered with style and unquestionable service by your team."

“Our trip to Chile and Argentina was perfect. Your drivers were professional, friendly and had good language skills. It is apparent that you have many good contacts in the South American wine world. Your attention to detail and personalized service truly exceeded expectations. Meeting us personally at the airport from post-tour activities, dining with us in BA, putting us on all the planes. Truly a first class trip and I would recommend you to anyone.”

“Touring the wineries of the Salta Region of Argentina and in Uruguay with Tim Robertson, Director of Robertson Wine Tours, was a marvelous experience. Tim's attention to details as well as his concern for the personal needs of his clients gave us a wonderfully customized tour. His experienced palate and exceptional rapport with the top wine makers in each region made for an excellent journey. The high quality of the wines was a revelation and the warmth of the winemaking families further enhanced the experience.”

“My tour in Uruguay and Argentina was most memorable maybe because Tim was my personal guide, but also because of the hospitality at each winery. I traveled alone on this trip and it was one of my favorite vacations to date. I would hire Robertson Wine Tours again and highly recommend his services.
