Family holiday into the central wine valleys of Chile
“Yes, overall we were very impressed and would certainly recommend you to anyone. Good pace, the choice of wineries was very good and everything flowed very well. If any of your prospective clients would like to talk to us, we would be more than willing to answer any questions they may have.”

Texas comes to Argentina – horseback riding, wine and food in Mendoza
“Tim helped us with so much more than just the wonderful tours of Mendoza Bodegas. As our interests are wide ranging, he was also able to line us up with a tour of artists’ homes and workshops that was the best ever, and horseback riding in the Uco Valley foothills of the Andes. What a wonderful trip!”

Dear Robertson wine tours Team My Wife and James and I would like to offer our sincere thanks for such a well thought out and executed tour. Effortless travelling was what we wanted and we felt you exceeded our expectations. Wine Wise which country did we prefer? we are torn, with James and and Janet being with Argentina and I fall into the Chilean camp. I wish you all much luck in the future for your plans to expand to Italy and keep us in touch when you are set to go there. Kind regards

Puglia & Basilicata: Wine & Food Experience in Southern Italy.
Puglia & Basilicata: Wine & Food Experience in Southern Italy. Tim, When my friend Laura Hamilton sent me a link to the trip you were offering through Jetsetter and said "This has us written all over it" and asked if I was in...I very quickly responded "Hell ya!". It didn't take long to realize that this trip would be like no other... I really liked the smaller group and we were so blessed to have a fantastic group of people who I now consider friends. I learned a lot about the wines and the delicious food of the region...While there were many great experiences, one of my favorites was the cooking class with Gianna, John & Sara at Cooking Experience Lezioni di Cucina Salentina, Lecce, South Italy. The food was fabulous and I enjoyed learning to make orecchiette pasta along with everything else we made that day, DELICIOSO! Last weekend, I shared part of that experience with friends where we made my sauce and meatballs paired with fresh pasta using the recipe from our class. I only made about 10 orecchiette before switching to cavatelli, soooo much easier but we were pleasantly surprised how good it was! Our second cooking class at L'Astore Masseria, also fabulous and what a setting...beautiful!! The wine tastings were plentiful and very, very good! MORELLA was one of my favorites and it was really great to hear Lisa's story. I even made it home with one bottle of Old Vine but for how long, we shall see. Thank you Tim & Cristian for planning and delivering on the trip of a lifetime and the memories!!! I look forward to travelling with you again! Baci a tutti!

We will be back. Now we are going to Cape Town this week 6/22. We want to know if you have any knowledge of wineries or wine tours there. Ciao Terry”

‘Grazie Mille from Louisiana!’
Yes, we are home! The return trip is always harder because of the long hours and saying 'goodbye for a while' to new friends!
What a unique and memorable trip! We came home with 'little pieces of Italy' and BIG memories! I truly believe it is the people we meet on life's journey that make the difference. You made that difference! Tim, your desire to continually improve and your belief that 'it can be better', are the foundation of each great trip. I feel the same way! I guess we are kindred spirits!
Cristian, I really enjoyed our conversation at dinner. We are alike in our optimism. The most important difference we make may be in the small connections we make with people each day. Like the waves in a lake, each ripple touches another and so do each of our connections with people touch others. I will be back and look forward to planning my next adventure in Italy!

BASILICATA AND PUGLIA. Exclusive tour with highlights of the region
When reading a review it's often difficult to associate that persons view with your own standards. So with that I give you perspective .. I am considered "High Maintenance" by my closest friends. It's true...I have very high expectations of service providers. I have no problem asking people to stretch and customize their offerings to suit special needs. Once that is agreed to I expect to receive what I am promised. With that I will simply say..Robertson Wine Tours has exceeded my highest expectations every time, at every turn. My husband and I first worked with RWT several years ago on a wine experience in South America. Tim Robertson put together an itinerary that was customized specifically to the experience we wanted. We were met with English speaking drivers and guides. Our tours and accommodations were first class. When Tim moved to Italy we knew we would follow. We invited several friends to join us on another RWT trip. These friends are also world travelers with "High Maintenance" leanings themselves. When you invite others on a trip you can worry .."will things come through? will they be happy?...Not with Tim Robertson. I had no doubt they would be more than happy with their experience because I had no doubt about Tim, Cristian and their team. It actually made planning the trip a pleasure in itself. I won't go into the details of what made our trip so wonderful because if you are considering a trip with RWT I won't spoil it by telling you. I will say a few objective things I think its important to know about RWT. Here's what you can expect: - To be treated like an individual - There's no cookie cutting with them - Honest feedback - If there's a place not up to expectations he will tell you, if there's a place he endorses..trust it. - Above and Beyond- Once you are in his hands his team will do all they can to make sure you are getting the best experience possible. If adjustments need to be made they will work with you. - Value- Whatever the cost of the trip you design, you will feel like you got what you paid for and more..That's pure value - No Stress - RWT designs tours to take the stress out so you enjoy the experience...drivers, guides, hotels.. all high quality Last but not certainly not least - WINE- if your goal is to experience wines and everything we love about wines- the makers, the regional differences, tasting them, talking about them, learning, wines with food...Ahh.. just thinking about how much fun a high end wine tour can be makes us want to head to the airport... If you love wine like my husband and I do then look no further. If you are beginning to love wine then fair warning...RWT will turn you into a wine lover for sure!!! Enjoy the wine and cooking experiences Tim and his team have to offer. These are special places with wonderful surprises and touches everyday.....RWT will create a wine experience you won't soon forget!
