The origins of Valentine’s Day are much debated, but if you want to celebrate with a loved one we have a selection of wine tours that offer you the perfect opportunity to do so in a range of glorious locations… From shorter breaks to full-length trips, show your affections with an expert-led wine tour this year.
First up, we have our indulgent Champagne Weekends. For just £895pp, you can accompany either Matthew Boucher or Conal Gregory, Master of Wine, to glorious Reims, where the doors to revered Champagne houses will be opened to you. Tours and tasting experiences await at the likes of Taittinger, Champagne Brice, Champagne Jean Milan, André Jacquart & Fils, and Champagne Mailly. The visits vary depending on whether you choose our April or November departure, but both are via Eurostar, which means you can bring up to 36 bottles of bubbly back home with you…
Next, we have something for those among us who value a spectacular vista. Join our Friuli & Slovenia wine tour this October and make the trip out to Lake Bled, set rather majestically in northwestern Slovenia’s Julian Alps. The bluish-green water and little castle that’s perched atop the islet make for a very romantic scene indeed. What’s more, this multi-centre holiday will allow you to compare two countries’ wines in the company of expert Lys Hall.
Finally, we have a unique exploration into wine and culture on offer that will take you to the amazing Italian city of Verona. Along with visits and tasting at some fantastic wineries and vineyards, we will also give you some free time with which you can choose to visit Juliet’s House. Here, visitors rub the right breast of the bronze statue of Juliet, which can be found it the charming courtyard, as it’s thought to bring good luck in love. Additionally, there will be two included opera performances on this tour, with the option to add up to another two at further costs.
