Private Natural Wine Bar Tours

About Wendy Lyn

Wendy Lyn is a straight-talking Southern food writer known as the “Insider’s Insider” in the international food + drink industry from having worked as a PR & Restaurant Consultant to the some of the world’s biggest Chefs & Winemakers and launching the first US Michelin Guide.

Today, this Professional Eater is a tv/film producer, podcaster and journalist traveling 200+ days a year on epic eating trips with industry friends in search of the people & places influencing the way we eat + drink today. Follow the adventures on Instagram, or join her on a private food + wine tour in her favourite city Paris, France.

There is a reason Wendy’s food + natural wine bar tours sell out months in advance. She’s been featured in The New York Times | The Wall St Journal | NBC TODAY | Travel + Leisure | Food & Wine Magazine | The Travel Channel with Andrew Zimmern + Anthony Bourdain


Not a “tour” person? Wendy isn’t either. Like most of you, she is independent, doesn’t want to research the internet for hundreds of hours, or discover that her wish list of places to eat is closed on Sunday, etc.  She wants a local industry insider to get her to the right spots to eat & drink and meet fun like-minded people.

These private, custom experiences are just for you & Wendy (more fun that way) so that you can dig in deeper, eat and drink what you want, linger, laugh, ask questions, and have casual spontaneous experiences that are not scripted. One layer at a time, you’ll start seeing and understanding things you wouldn’t have seen on your own. Not only will you gain tons of local knowledge, but you’ll also be eating & drinking like a pro in no time.

Not only the was the tour a total learning experience, it was just plain fun. Wendy’s knowledge, outgoing personality and connections made for quite the boring afternoon after our rock star morning with her. Within minutes of leaving her we were asking each other, "Can we hit rewind and do that again?"
