Exploring Wine trips are about much more than wine, including all the following elements:
beautiful scenery and time to enjoy it
history, with opportunities to absorb it
city life and local culture time (museums, shopping, etc.)
winery visits and tastings, including talks with winemakers
free time to explore
chances to dine independently of our group
special pre-planned gourmet dinners
upscale boutique hotels
on the first day of the trip, a review of local history and culture
a briefing booklet with practical information, maps and profiles of key destinations
Our itineraries are fine for first-time visitors, but also feature some places that experienced travelers won’t have been to. And wine expertise certainly isn’t required! Meticulous pre-planning is a hallmark of these expeditions.
