Introductions

Dave Kasper

My name is Dave Kasper and I am your host and full-time guide for your Select Wine Journey. Together with my wife Margaret, our passion for wine, travel and history inspired us to create a wine travel company for wine enthusiasts like us. From start to finish, our local team and I will be with you to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable wine adventure that will be truly memorable!

Many years ago, while on a family vacation in the Loire Valley, France, we were introduced to the fabulous wine and the strong traditions and culture of the region. The beauty of the Valley, the significant history, the strength of the local culture, and the incredible people and their passion for wine making, were unforgettable. I remember a particular day, sipping wine in a vineyard nestled into the chalk slopes of St.Nicolas de Bourgueil. The simple lunch among the vines, the sight of a far off storm blowing down the Loire River, and the delicious Cabernet Franc in my glass, inspired me to pursue a dream . . . Select Wine Journeys! Over the subsequent years we have developed great relationships and friendships with wine-makers who are passionate about their family history, their land and their wine.

Our friends Mireille and Laurent Daubert are long-time residents of the famous Appellation of Vouvray. Their contribution to Select Wine Journeys is invaluable as we plan our Journeys down to the very last detail. Whether it's enjoying a gourmet picnic lunch among the vines, or being introduced to another great wine-maker, you will surely enjoy their expertise and generosity.

Whichever Select Wine Journey week you choose, we promise you an authentic vineyard travel adventure like none other!
