It’s not just Guido: all of DuVine’s guides speak the language and know the roads and regions like the backs of their hands. They also happen to be former pro cyclists, winemakers, and PhD scholars. They hail from the Champagne merchants who introduced bubbly to the United States. They’ve worked in Michelin kitchens and as Editor-in-Chief of a cycling magazine. But above all, they’re local—which translates into personal connections worth sharing.

It’s a given that guides are leaders on and off the road, preparing picnics, fixing flat tires, and cheering you on through challenging rides. But a DuVine guide does more. They’re your compassionate and intuitive companions, carefully selected, trained, and trusted to make spontaneous detours. They’re your personal paparazzi, your support van chauffer, and the ones who slip champagne in your room—and by the end of your tour, they’re family.
