Vino, a community of wine lovers our small independent wine company

Wine host for tours to the wine country; wine communicator and lecturer for wine weekends and wine cruises.

"In the evening, at the parador’s private dining room, there’s the first tutored tasting of the trip, with our excellent wine guide, Marc Millon, who is to spend the whole 10 days with the group, telling us about the wines we encounter and leading our tastings. He is an inspired choice, proving to be an amiable companion and a fount of information, but wears his knowledge lightly – so no one feels awkward asking questions (even stupid ones)." Terry Ramsey, The Times On-line
