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
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 .
in 2018 we are offering 7-night exploration of the wines of Jerez plus the food and the culture of the beautiful region of Andalucía. Sherry, is an underestimated and misunderstood wine and this is your chance to spend a week in the region and learn all about it with Wendy and Carlos. Wendy is a qualified Sherry Educator with a great passion for these wines and Carlos, our Spanish guide will ensure you get the most out of the trip with no language barriers.
In 2018 we are offering a 3-day whistle stop tour of Burgundy which will be ran by Wendy Gedney and includes the famous Côte-d’Or but also the southern appellations which many people unfortunately miss when they go to Burgundy. The southern wines have long been a favourite of Wendy’s, especially the whites from the Mâconnais and the countryside in that area is also very beautiful.
