With every passing year we expand our repertoire to include new and exciting destinations in the farthest reaches of the wine world — and those closer to home, too. Explore the famous, familiar, and up-and-coming in Europe, from perennial favourites Champagne and Bordeaux to Georgia, Greece, and even Scotland! Or go further with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the volcanic landscapes of South America, the sun-warmed valleys of California, or the modern cities and emerald forests of New Zealand.
Our Wine Guides are experts in their field, these Masters of Wine, wine consultants and writers will accompany you on each of our tours. They convey their knowledge with passion and panache, not just experts in wine, put experts in telling the stories behind every glass. Our Tour Managers work behind the scenes to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
You can make a lot of friends in thirty years— and that’s exactly what we’ve done. From Sussex to South Africa, we’ve built up quite an address book, whether it’s our very own under-the-radar discoveries, or established veterans of their regions. Our tours include access to top-notch producers all over the world. From First Growth Bordeaux producers, to Super Tuscans, to the English Sparkling Wine makers. No other Wine Tours company comes close.
Our tour groups are small enough to feel intimate, but large enough to ensure a variety of wonderful characters. The maximum size of our groups (excluding Champagne) is 25, with the average number of passengers around 16. If you are looking for an even more exclusive experience our Reserve tours are restricted to a maximum of 16-20 clients.
Great wine and great food make excellent bedfellows, each bringing out the best in the other. In light of this, we’ve crafted each tour to include the very best food of the region. We hand-pick our hotels and the vast majority of our accommodation is based in characterful, often family-run, 4* hotels. One our Reserve tours, we feature 5* accommodation, often within wine estates.
