  • The Top Four Wine Tours

    Wine tours are a fantastic way to really immerse yourself in the heritage and culture of the grape. They are equal parts education and entertainment, giving you the chance to learn about the wines you love in the heart of the regions that produce them. However, there are almost as many wine tours as there are wines, so here’s a look at our top four.

    1. France off the Beaten Path offer small group tours to the Provence, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Dordogne and Loire Valley regions of the world’s most famous wine producing country. The six-day tours focus on local experiences and activities, with luxury accommodation and stunning French cuisine thrown in to complement the wines you sample. Visit: traveloffthebeatenpath.com

    2. Burgundy Discovery is owned and operated by an English couple living in the Burgundy region of France. They offer a variety of tours through the Burgundy region, visiting local, family-owned wine cellars and world famous vineyards. Their five-day wine tours combine visits to the Burgundy region with trips to Tuscany, the Rhone Valley and the Savoy region of France. Burgundy Discovery wine tasting tours are all-inclusive and escorted by an English-speaking guide. Visit: burgundydiscovery.com

    3. For bolder flavours, you might want to consider a trip to America. Napa Valley’s oldest continually operating winery, Beringer Vineyards, offer you the chance to enjoy a wide diversity of award-winning wines in beautifully landscaped grounds. You can find more details at beringer.com

    4. A renaissance in exports has put Chile back on the map as a serious wine producer. Neighbouring Argentina has also established itself as a force to be reckoned with, producing some of the most exciting dessert wines to be found anywhere in the world. Winetours.co.uk offers a South American Wine Tour that takes in some of the best vineyards of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay.
