Come to California for a fabulous wine tasting tour through the Sonoma and Napa Valleys and ride on the Wine Train. Visit wineries, sample champagne, and learn how olive oil is made. Take a road trip to some of California’s less famous, but equally fruitful and bountiful wine growing areas.
Napa Valley wineries are famous not only for their Cabernet Sauvignon, but also for a range of white and rose wines. On wine tasting trips and Napa Valley tours you’ll note the valley’s distinct microclimates – which help growers produce grapes with individual character. When you visit on one of our Napa Valley wine tours, always remember to stop in smaller villages and sample olives between your tastings.

Vineyards in New Zealand have a great reputation: cool temperatures lead to long ripening times and distinctive flavors.
If you’re unsure where to travel in New Zealand to sample their flavors, head to the east side of the islands. Sauvignon Blanc is by far the most commonly grown variety in New Zealand – a favored destination during Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays.
Each winery benefits from the island’s shape: no matter where you are, you’re never more than 80 miles (120km) from the sea, so there’s lots of sunshine and cool breezes off the water. Contact Us for help planning your New Zealand Wine Tasting Holiday.
