Wine Tasting Holidays and Tours in France
A wine tasting holiday in France is fun, interesting, informative and a great wine shopping opportunity. Many of the properties advertised on our website are farmhouses, chateaux, manoirs, watermills, cottages and giites whose owners offer wine tours and organised wine tasting sessions. With destinations all over France, you can find a holiday just ripe for the picking!
Wine Tasting Holidays in Bordeaux
A popular wine tasting destination that really draws in the tourists is Bordeaux. Probably the world's most famous wine region, Bordeaux is home to some of the world's most aristocratic wines.
Wine Tasting Holidays in the Languedoc
A less visited region, but still famed for its quality wine is the Languedoc. This region is blessed with old vines, great weather, good soils and a host of interesting grape varieties.
The pleasures of wine tasting holidays in France
Fine wine is born out of the natural environment in which grapes are grown and the culture and traditions of its producers. France is a perfectly successful mix of both factors and the ultimate destination for wine tasting.
Stroll round a vineyard on a hot summer’s day, admiring juicy ripe grapes on the vine and verdant hillsides stretching before you. Venture into the shade for tasting straight from the barrel in cool medieval cellars. Gain insight into the art of wine tasting – the fragrant aromas, the subtlety of flavours, the rich colours. After a leisurely afternoon of wine tasting, you can be sure you won’t walk away empty handed. When you open a bottle at home, your comments will be expert and the holiday memories will all come flooding back!
