We were welcomed with open arms and spent about an hour and half being shown around and tasting. It was so interesting and the lady was very knowledgeable. The wines were ready for us and we actually bought another case. Top class.
Mr R Griffiths, Warwick – July 2017

We arrived as 3D partners and left as friends. Superb wines, and good value for money. Looking forward to the Loire weekend, this will be our third time and all have been different.
Mr & Mrs A Hewling, Cornwall – July 2017

As ever, the wines were wondrous. Such good quality and also value for money. My friends love Gewurtztraminer and knew little of Pinot Gris and Riesling of Alsace. They are now committed converts! As usual, superb organisation.
Mrs S Hopkins, Kent – June 2017

It was lovely to meet such a genuine character very much of the village and with such a long history of the area. My father came with us and they were of a similar age and got along so very well. We have opened a few bottles, not surprisingly they are tasting a little young but our friends, family and ourselves are very pleased with this delightfully flavorsome and fruity wine. Friends have been so impressed by our experiences that I do know that you have had 2 enquiries, if not sales. We are very happy with our experience.
Mr & Mrs L Jones, Wellingborough – June 2017

Experience: Brilliant as always!  Wines: Really superb. All very positive – great company who really know their market and products, lovely staff, and really superb wines to suit all tastes.”
Mr & Mrs J Hall, Devon – May 2017

A fantastic visit. Pierre made us very welcome and we learnt a lot about champagne. We had visited Moet the day before and the contrast in his operation with that of Moet was fascinating. A very enjoyable visit. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs M Burden, Devon – May 2017

We always enjoy visiting Mr Riffault. He is always welcoming and hospitable and gives us good advice.
Mr & Mrs J F Cook, Surrey – April 2017

Warm welcome from team! I was with some relatives and they were also impressed. Looking forward to next year. The champagne is fantastic. As I said to them at the vineyard we regard it as our house champagne!! Thanks for arranging visit.
Dr J Hanslip, Dundee – April 2017

Very friendly reception and conversation at the vineyard. Excellent wines. As usual, a great experience facilitated by you all at 3D.”
Mr P Banham, Surrey – March 2017

We have got to know Valerie and Pascal well over the years and always get a very warm welcome.  Wines are very good quality, excellent value.
Mr K Beaumont, Buckinghamshire – March 2017

Mr R Thomas, Kent – January 2017

Just to wish you all a Happy Christmas! Thanks for all you do for us merry members – and a very good 2017!
Ms F MacDonald, Cornwall – December 2016

Just wanted to thank you for organising the tasting in London last night, as always I am hugely impressed buy your knowledge and passion for our wines. There was certainly a great selection of wines on offer and I need to get organised to get my hands on my Sancerre as that was just great!  Also looking forward to having some more of the Savigny Les Beaunes as that was exceptional and just to my taste.  I look forward to seeing you next time and hopefully will be able to join you on another tour sometime soon.”
Mr K Milsom, Surrey – November 2016

We received a very interesting tour of the cellar and an excellent and generous tasting. This was somehow a “homely” as well as professional visit and we felt we belonged – in spite of the harvest having begun just the day before. We were treated to an excellent tasting of a large range of wines all of which were delicious and also good value. We were also given the opportunity to taste grapes straight from the vine – so we really feel we got to experience the vine to bottle process fully!
Mr S Pitts, London – October 2016

The whole experience is great, we have been members for a number of years and are getting to know many of the vignerons! Looking forward to trips to the Loire to collect.”
Mr D Harris, Buckinghamshire – October 2016

As always, all at Gruss are very welcoming and we love visiting. We are always impressed by their command of several languages. They make us feel like old friends. I have only positive comments – it is always a pleasure to deal with 3D Wines.
Mrs A Thornley, Kent – October 2016

All excellent. Jean-Michel has a delightfully light touch for such a big bloke! We drank 08 Gevery Chambertin at my daughters recent wedding – delicious.
Mr A Batchelor, York – October 2016

Extremely glad we were made a Riffault customer by chance, many years ago – would not dream of changing. After so many years as a client it is like visiting a friend.
J G Knox, Southampton – September 2016

An excellent visit with slight variations on previous visits as host recognised that we were returning guests, good tasting, and a very friendly welcome. The Champagne is excellent as always.
Ms H O’Connor, Middlesex – September 2016

Super visit with M. Mary, who gave us loads of his time and was very happy to chat and explain his wines. Very tasty wines and excellent value for money. Our sons love it, so we bought some more!
Mr R Winning, London – August 2016

Just a quick note to, once again, say thank you for all your hard work in putting together such a wonderful few days in Burgundy. We had a truly wonderful time … You even managed to organise good weather which, considering what most of France was experiencing, was little short of miraculous … The choice of restaurants was perfect. It was great to have dinner with Vincent and Genevieve on Thursday night. Have to say that the meal at LA Conty was a revelation. Absolutely loved that fish dish and the desert was good, as well … Drinking wine is all very well but it makes a lot more sense when someone takes the time to explain it all. Who knows, I might even get my head around the Burgundian Appellation rules in another couple of years!
Mr & Mrs Muth, Cornwall – July 2016

We really like our wines. The white is fresh and delicious and the reds rounded, smooth and a great representative of the area. They are remarkable value.
Mr & Mrs Wynn, Norfolk – July 2016

Many thanks for making our Bordeaux weekend such an enjoyable and educational event.  Both Sally and yourself made this a great trip and one that we will remember for a long time.
John & Sally Hayes – July 2016

We had a fantastic time on the Bordeaux weekend. The hotel was excellent and the owners could not do enough for us. I don’t think I shall ever forget the last meal, under the stars and the owner attempting to pour champagne into our glasses whilst riding a bike… Meeting the vignerons at their vineyards confirmed just how passionate they are about their product. Not surprisingly and certainly not unexpectedly was their enthusiasm for 3D wines… It is also worth noting how well everybody in the group got on together.
Mr B Cartwright, Kent – July 2016

As always a delightful morning meeting the Baudets again. They are generous with their time and make you feel very welcome. The wines – continuing excellence. Every year I consider whether to try a different vineyard, but always feel it would be crazy to do without a wine we all enjoy so much. You continue to do a wonderful job. Thankyou.”
Mrs S Hembry, Saffron Walden, Essex – June 2016

We really enjoyed the weekend. We thought the first night was excellent and it was really good to meet the producers. We were very impressed by the visit to the cooper, and learnt a lot. Also, it was nice to stand in a Meursault vineyard with the producer. Saturday was brilliant. We really took to the producer at Domaine Jacob. The dinner  on the Saturday was very well chosen. We really thought we were not going to do that meal justice, but the style was perfect, as was the venue.
Mr J Holt – June 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and visit. Picked up recently bottled 2014 but also tasted the last 5 years Chateauneuf and Cotes Du Rhone vintages. Purchased some organic olive oil in addition. 2014 already very drinkable – full bodied & slightly peppery as expected. Might improve over a couple of years but doubt it will be in our cellar much longer than that.
Mr A Bone – June 2016

We had a wonderful visit and learnt more than at the tour we took of a major champagne producer in Reims. I love this champagne as do far too many of my friends!!!!”
Miss A West, Berkshire – May 2016

It is not just the excellent wine – it is the great team and friendly service that makes all dealings with 3dwines such a pleasure.”
John Hall, Devon – May 2016

Jean-Luc and Jean-Albert were as warm and welcoming as ever, what a real pleasure it was to see them again and, of course, to enjoy the excellent wine tasting that Jean-Luc always provides. As the ‘grand père’ of 3D Jean-Luc has had many years of practice but the warmth of his welcome, the courtesy that he extends and the enthusiasm for his wines has not diminished one iota. If anything, his excellent command of English, now, makes him better than ever. We will be back! … Very pleased to witness how the range of wines from this vineyard continues to expand and how the techniques of both production and presentation keep developing. The wines are a delight. … Keep doing what you are doing! The 3D Team remains as charming and efficient as ever.”
Mr & Mrs C Davis – May 2016

We have been drinking the wines for the last 5 years and they are excellent.”
Mrs C Banham – April 2016

We were made very welcome and treated as old friends. My wife speaks French fluently and I understand quite a lot, so language is not a problem. However our host can speak good English. We like the wines and have just ordered some more!
Dr W H Robinson, Worcestershire – April 2016

What a gem this place is [Alsace]. We will go back later in the year after the harvest when we will have more time to do everything we missed on our first visit and stay much longer. My parting memory is seeing the storks floating lazily overhead as we left the village.
Mr D Hambridge, Oxfordshire – April 2016

3D were very helpful and friendly at all stages of the booking process. We had an excellent, very generous visit, they could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The wines are excellent across the board. Great difficulty in deciding which other wines to buy as well…
Mrs D Dixon, Warrington – March 2016

As usual with this vineyard the visit is always enjoyable. They always make you feel most welcome and we always look forward to their events.  Wines – excellent!
Mr K J Rawnson, Hampshire – February 2016

“Although the vendange had just started, the family were most friendly and welcoming and even shared a glass of their wine with us whilst we watched the very first grapes of the harvest arrive for pressing. A wonderful experience shared with the family. Once again, a most enjoyable visit and a chance to experience a part of real French vineyard life with the people who make the wines.”
Mr P Banham, Surrey – October 2015

“Always a warm welcome and give generously of their knowledge, information and time. Keep up the good work! We are hoping to spread our wings next year:)”
Mrs A Jenner, Cheshire – October 2015

“As good if not better than all the previous 14 visits! This was our 15th annual visit and as always most enjoyable to catch up with Christine and the Jacob family.”
Mr M Stevens, Bucks – October 2015

“As always we had a truly wonderful welcome, we are always made to feel so welcome. We are never rushed, even when other tasters arrive. Jezebel (not sure of spelling) is brilliant at sharing her love of the job she does. This year we even got all our wine, all 9 cases of it, packed into our car for us by Andre. The trouble with visiting Gruss is that we like all their wines, which are excellent and finish up buying so many extras that we have no space in the car to include other vineyards… continued thanks for your excellent support and continued access to good wines.”
Mrs C Hanby, York – October 2015

“Daniella and Pierre were very welcoming and informative . They went above and beyond considering it was just the two of us and our 8 month old baby.”
Mr J Davers, Hants – October 2015

“Pierre Riffault was delightful, and took time to explain the how and why of his wines. He also showed us round his bottling area and explained how the harvesting machinery worked. We were made to feel most welcome.”
Mr D Watson, E Sussex –  October 2015

“It was a delight to meet Christine Jacob again. She gave us a thorough tour of the Cave despite being in the midst of harvesting…. We enjoyed hearing about the pleasures of hosting the grape-pickers in the warm September sunshine. Echevronne remains as charming as we remember it from our previous visit.”
Mr & Mrs A Durrant, Sheffield – October 2015

“As always a friendly, welcoming reception from Daniella, despite the grape picking only finishing the day before. It was great to see the vineyard in operation, and Pierre plus staff did not make us feel as if we got in the way at all. Love all the champagne.”
Ms H O’Connor, Middlesex – October 2015

“Met with very genial gentleman Pierre. After a very informative talk and tasting of whites, rose and reds he kindly took us for a short drive to view the vines. Great view across to Sancerre and again very informative on the vines and the history of the area, the appellation and also on the goats and cheeses. Overall an extremely welcoming host in a nice rural setting for a wine tasting.”
Mr M Cummins, Cheshire – August 2015

“We always look forward to visiting Domaine du Carroir Perrin, he makes us so welcome never in a rush, always pleased to exchange family news etc. He is a gentleman. We have been with the vineyard for a few years now, the rosé and white are a delight to drink and have introduced them to friends and family in the past and always have to bring back more than ordered through 3D wines.”
Mr L Carpenter, Hants – July 2015

“We visited 5 vineyards on our trip and this was our favourite. Daniella was brilliant, she explained everything in so much detail with such enthusiasm. We felt like we really learnt so much and enjoyed the whole tour. We asked lots and lots of questions which she answered in detail and was a really welcoming and friendly host. She wrote down directions and suggested a place to go after our visit which we did and had a fabulous time, we would not have had any idea about it if she had not done this. We bought two champagnes from Fresne Ducret, although all that we tried were wonderful. While tasting it was interesting to hear Daniellas serving suggestions and about when to drink the different champagnes.”
Mr K Weston, N Yorks – July 2015

“Lovely people who made us very welcome – and the wines were good too!”
Mr J Turner, Herts – July 2015

I just wanted to thank you for organising such a wonderful event around the vineyards of the Loire.  As you know ,my last trip with 3D was to the Sancerre Foire Au Vins and Pierre Riffault’s “picnic” some 15 years ago and it is nice to be back in the fold!  … Apart from all of the excellent wines and food, I thought our winemakers showed great passion and knowledge that they were clearly proud to share and it made for a very educational, as well as gastronomic, trip.  I think a highlight I will not forget is the lovely Steph at Chevalerie in Bourgeuil taking us all the way back through each year of her Busardieres to 2002. Thanks also go to Debbie for her company and also all the organisation that makes a trip like that run so smoothly. I look forward to seeing you again soon
Keith Milsom, Surrey – July 2015

“Christine and Jean-Michel were very friendly and informative. We had a morning to remember – thank you.”
Mrs A Clark, Herts – June 2015

“We were made to feel most welcome and had a most enjoyable visit. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you so much.”
Mr M Walne, Rutland – June 2015

“Lovely people – very warm and welcoming as on all previous visits – like visiting old friends! Comprehensive tasting of their superb wines, and very interesting to see how their business is investing for the future. Overall, a really enjoyable and informative visit – well worth the drive from the UK! My wife and I have had enormous pleasure – and greatly broadened our education of vinous matters – since we joined 3D over 10 years ago and started sampling the wide range of superb quality wines on offer. Overall a great organisation with lovely staff who are patient, understanding and knowledgeable!…”
Mr & Mrs J Hall, Devon – June 2015

“An absolutely excellent visit. We are delighted with the wines.”
Mr A Sprake, Suffolk – June 2015

My wife and I have had enormous pleasure – and greatly broadened our education of vinous matters – since we joined 3D over 10 years ago and started sampling the wide range of superb quality wines on offer. Overall a great organisation with lovely staff who are patient, understanding and knowledgeable! The opening up of regional options (with the increased range of choice) is a brilliant idea, and encourages partners to get even better value from their membership. “
Mr J Hall, Devon – June 2015
