OUR STORY

Private Food and Wine Tours in Bordeaux

1938

My grandparents moved from Switzerland and bought a winery in Dordogne, Chateau Monestier La Tour – the beginning of our family's love affair with wine…

2001

I moved to NYC, started working in the food and wine business and fell in love with the American culture

2014

Back in Bordeaux, in my hometown, 10 minutes away from the beautiful village of Saint Emilion, I decided to start a business that brings together everything I love in life: people, wine, food and travels … Bordeaux With Elodie is born!

2017

We taste so many delicious wines and know how difficult it can be to choose, so we created one of Bordeaux's first wine clubs, BWE, shipping carefully selected wines to the US and worldwide.

2022

We survived covid, quite the rollercoaster, and we are back in action! So grateful to see our lovely guests travelling to Bordeaux again. Our heart is full!

The Team

Elodie JOUANNEL
Signature Elodie

I was born and bred in the Bordeaux region, just minutes from the magnificent vineyards of Saint Emilion; I am as much a product of the area’s unique terroir as the local wines.

My grandfather spent his entire life in the wine and food business, my brother manages a chateau, and my cousin is a wine merchant. After living in the U.S. and Central America for over a decade and working for gourmet food businesses, like Les Trois Petits Cochons (The Three Little Pigs); I am thrilled to have returned to my roots, and to the beauty and grace of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux with Elodie gives me the opportunity to share my passion for the region with wine and culinary enthusiasts from around the world.

Laura wine guide_JPG

Born and raised in Pessac Leognan, one of the oldest appellations in the Bordeaux region, Laura has been immersed in the world of wine since childhood.

For several years Laura has worked in prestigious vineyards in Bordeaux, learning everything there is to know about winemaking and wine tourism.

Since 2015, Laura has been Elodie’s right arm. Both at the office and in the vineyards, Laura loves being surrounded by travellers, good wine, and good food!

With her great personality, deep knowledge, passion, and commitment – trust us, you won’t want your tour to end! 😉

Emilie

Emilie spent years in Paris, working in the world of luxury, hospitality and tourism – including eight years as a commercial agent for Air France. She left still loving hospitality but not the subject, and her life changed when she decided to reunite with one of her first loves in Bordeaux: red wine!

Emilie will show you the very best of Bordeaux with endless knowledge, love, passion and emotion.

Marina

Marina was born around Lyon, the capital of French gastronomy, and grew up surrounded by vineyards.

She knew her future lay in Bordeaux, so she completed a Master’s Degree in wine marketing and interned in a winery in Saint-Emilion: the love story had begun!

After working at several prestigious wineries throughout the Bordeaux appellations – Sauternes, Pomerol, etc., –  she met Elodie, and the rest is history! She is now living the dream, and can’t wait to share it with you, our lovely guests. Cheers!

The first man to make it to the Dreamteam!

He is exceptional, as reaffirmed by our guests lucky enough to experience his guides. 

​Jeremy was born to an English mother and a French father, who raised him here in Bordeaux. Loyal to the region,  he has worked in some of the most exclusive estates from a young age, developing a strong passion for winemaking.

Jeremy has vast knowledge and loves meeting fellow wine lovers, sharing his passion for great foods and wines and, crucially, having fun!

Margaux

Born and raised in French Polynesia, on the island of Tahiti, Margaux’s parents are both from Bordeaux. Needless to say, her name was the natural choice for two wine lovers!

Margaux returned to her roots years ago to work in this beautiful wine capital as a sommelier and wine tour guide. Passionate about everything to do with wine and in love with the Bordeaux appellations, she can’t wait to show you the best it has to offer!

Guillaume

Born and raised just south of Bordeaux city, Guillaume was naturally drawn to work within the wine and food environment.

After 10 years of experiences abroad – between Canada, Argentina, Australia, England and South Africa- Guillaume returned to his roots and is excited to share his passion for his region and its opulence!

Trilingual and passionate about people, he will be delighted to host you and make you fall in love with Bordeaux itself, along with its wines and culture.

Safia

Safia grew up in the Libournais, an area famous for the beautiful wines of Saint Emilion and Pomerol.

Safia always loved traveling and knew she wanted to work in the industry. She met Elodie many years ago, and in 2020 they decided to start working together… But then covid happened! 2 years on, Safia was finally able to join the BWE dream team! She’s been a happy member of the company since April 2022: working from the office, planning visits for our guests, and helping with administrative and accounting tasks.

Charlotte

Charlotte has been interning at BWE since January 2022 and oversees communications. She will be graduating with a master’s degree as a communications manager next year!

She is behind the posts, stories, articles, etc., as seen on our social media and website.

You can quickly put a smile on Charlotte’s face: go and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok, YouTube, Pinterest…
