Bernasse Earns Condé Nast Travel Specialist Eight Years in a Row
French Wine Explorers announces that Pascale Bernasse, President of French Wine Explorers, is honored as a Condé Nast Travel Specialist for 2019. This is the eighth year in a row that Bernasse is recognized with this prestigious distinction.
Condé Nast Traveler states: “Serious oenophiles seek out Bernasse for her access to top winemakers, estate owners, and landmark private castles not open to the public.”
Bernasse has been in the travel industry for nineteen years, and acquired French Wine Explorers in 2007. She has earned a reputation for curating exceptional tours that provide educational and memorable wine tasting experiences. Part of her success is due to deep relationships with top estates and guides in France. Her company offers wine tasting tours in Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Loire Valley, Champagne, Provence and beyond. These exclusive tours offer guests VIP access to vineyards and tasting rooms.
French Wine Explorers’ tours and high level of service inspire repeat guests, some three or more times. One guest said of their second trip coordinated by Bernasse, “You not only met [our] high expectations, you again exceeded them, but this time beyond anything we possibly could have imagined.”
“Being included on this very special list for the eighth time by Condé Nast Traveler is inspiring,” says Bernasse. “We strive to offer the most creative, memorable experiences for our guests. We value our association with such a renowned publication. This title assures guests receive the highest quality of service in the industry.”
