The 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.
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. During this 4 day tour you will visit famous Châteauneuf du Pape plus what we think is the most beautiful vineyard in France tucked away in the stunning Dentelles mountains
In 2020 we are offering a 5-day tour of Burgundy that 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 ours, especially the whites from the Mâconnais and the countryside in that area is also very beautiful.
This wine tasting long weekend is based in the village of Falset, the capital of Priorat with restaurants and wine bars to enjoy in the evenings. You also get to taste great Cava and Penedès wines.
Specialist Private & Bespoke Tours
Why not let us create a bespoke tour for you in a European wine region of your choice. For ideas take a look at our Taste! Jerez holiday which we first ran in 2018. We suggest a 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 Carlos our Spanish guide.
Other regions to consider:
France: The Loire Valley, Champagne, Bordeaux, Provence and Roussillon.
Spain: Catalonia (Empordà & Penedès), Rioja, Jerez.
Italy: Tuscany, Piedmont.
