Top Ten

Wine Tours for 2018

2018 looks to be a bumper year for wine tours, with both long-established favourites and new offerings on the table. Today we’re sharing our Top Ten, to help you choose the tour that’s right for you.

1. Ontario and the Finger Lakes – The landscape of Canada never disappoints, and its wines are just as inspiring. Embark on a journey of sweet ice-wine, eco-vineyards, and modern-day classic producers in this unmissable adventure

2. Introduction to Bordeaux – The perfect tour for the fledgling wine taster – plus any oenophiles who still haven’t made it to the lovely Left Bank. A wonderful way to get to know one of the world’s best wine-making regions

3. Wine Cruise of the Spain and Portugal South Coast – A luxury yacht sails between award-winning bodegas, in a cruise that pairs fantastic wines with engaging excursions to the Alhambra and beyond

4. Prosecco Weekend – Tried one of our famous Champagne Weekends? Then perhaps it’s time to head to the blissful rolling hills of Italy, and fill a whole weekend with prize Prosecco

5. Châteaux of the Loire – Prestigious and exquisite, a week-long tour of the lovely Loire Valley combines some fascinating history with an abundance of heavenly wines

6. Melbourne and Tasmania – Fully escape the winter chill in South Australia, sipping wines in the sunshine in November and December. Spend the last days of the trip on the island of Tasmania, for organic goodies aplenty and a tutorial in sparkling wine

7. Burgundy and Switzerland – A rich blend of lesser-known Swiss varietals – less than a quarter of which are exported – and some of the finest French classics around, combine for a unique encounter with northern Europe

8. The Wine Gardens of Tuscany – The great outdoors is made greater still with wine tastings, garden tours, and freshly-made feasts, all served beneath the warming Tuscan sun

9. Churchill and Champagne – From Chapel Down to Pol Roger, this flavourful tour explores Churchill’s role in protecting the multiple charms of the Champagne region

10. Valencia in New Year – See out the old year with oodles of fizz and glitz. Enjoy welcoming wine cellars, dazzling fireworks, and a luxurious gala dinner
