Whether you prefer bold, fruity reds or light, balanced whites, wine lovers can partake in unique wine tours and tastings at a wide variety of our international luxury villas and city apartments in destinations including Puglia, Provence, Santorini and Waiheke Island in New Zealand.
Our network of wine experts allows us to pair guests with specialists in their field who can organise tours for everyone from wine tasting novices to collectors of the finest vintages. Inspiring and educational, you’ll gain insight into a vineyard’s history, production techniques, awards and bestselling bottles while discovering a raft of little-known producers you might not find at home. You’re sure to leave with a few new favourites to add to your personal wine collection.
In Italy, for example, we are delighted to work with Have a Glass in Venice, a wine tour provider run by master of wine Giorgia Chiozzi. Taking guests to vineyards across Venice and beyond, Have a Glass in Venice can also introduce you to food markets and under-the-radar eateries with dishes to complement the various local wines on offer.
In Mykonos, we can arrange a unique wine tasting adventure with an expert sommelier in a magical beach location. Luxuriate on beach cushions in a relaxed Bohemian style and enjoy a stunning wine tasting complemented by tales of Greek mythology, delicious local cheeses and sea and sunset views.
In addition, many of our villas are located on private estates that offer wine tours of their own vineyards and cellars, and we also have links to drivers in key winemaking destinations worldwide. The Owner’s Villa on the Delaire Graff Estate in the Cape Winelands region of South Africa is just one such stay. At its nearby Wine Lounge guests can enjoy unforgettable tutored wine tastings and food platter pairings which are guaranteed to please even the most discerning palette.
Perhaps you have a penchant for port? We also have a selection of superb villas in the Douro Valley that are perfect boltholes for those looking to learn about the history and production of this classic tipple.
If you’re looking for a port or wine tour with a difference, we can organise every last detail of your tasting experience, making it as effortless and enjoyable as possible. Simply notify us of your requirements and let us arrange wine tours and tastings unlike any other.
