Who are we ? or should I say Who am I ?


Let me first take this opportunity to introduce myself : I am Jean –Pierre LAFITTE, founder of "Lafitte Wine Tours” company. This company specialized in private tours organization about the Bordeaux region and particularly its prestigious vineyard, was created in 2011 in Bordeaux. (First name was "Bordeaux Wine & Tourism”)

I was born in 1960 very nearby Bordeaux and grew up between the "Basque country” and Bordeaux city …not so bad ! And this is very young that I’ve been educated to good food and good wine as my father was a "sommelier” and "maitre d’hotel” on cruise ships and my  mother an excellent cook !

After studies in Architecture and a school of Arts in Bordeaux, I experienced many different professions not always directly related to my real passions…

That’s why, when I turned fifty, I decided I wanted to wake up every morning and share my passion for good wine, gastronomy, architecture and much more …. with you !

So I look forward to welcoming you next...

Jean-Pierre Lafitte.
