My team at Vin en Vacances has a wide span of collective wine knowledge and language skills which we are putting to good use by offering a small range of top quality tasting tours in regions other than Languedoc-Roussillon. They are called Taste Tours! and every year we will offer a small selection of specialist wine & food holidays.
Specialist Tours for 2017
Taste! Côtes du Rhône
Every year we offer tours in the Côtes du Rhône which is just a hop skip and a jump from Languedoc where we are based. Our Côtes du Rhône tours are always customised for our clients but we have plenty of suggestions for you to choose from.
Catalonia has its own identity and language and a history that stretches back to the early Middle Ages. The landscape is breath-taking, the food delicious and the wines are some of the best in Spain. When I think of Catalonia I think of Barcelona, Salvador Dali, tapas and Paella, Cava, Costa Brava, Girona and of course one of my favourite wines Priorat so I’ve designed a week long holiday to taste all that’s wonderful in Catalonia .
Taste! Rioja & Ribera del Duero
Rioja was once heralded as the finest wine of Spain and in our opinion it is still one of the greatest however in recent years Ribera del Duero has risen to challenge its position. Join us for 5 nights in Rioja and Ribera del Duero to explore these two rival wine regions with our Spanish guide Carlos.
