Wine, Food & Cuisine Tours of France

With a Wine, Food & Cuisine Tours of France we recommend planning. It is wonderful to discover hidden gems of vineyards and wineries that offer superb products but often hours and even days can be spent just trying to find places that are open and offering wine tastings. Local tourist information offices are a good source of on the spot planning and local wine advice. Area and regional caves can provide a very good overview especially for those with limited time.

However nothing compared with a tour with a local tour guide - we recommend the experience.

    Recommendations

    For a real wine experience you must get into the actual vineyards and wineries where you can get the whole atmosphere of French winemakers. We focus on small ten to one hundred hectare vineyards, often with family owned wineries. Here you will find generations of tradition and passion for wine. The mainly French owners will give you a warm welcome and a number have at least one English speaking staff member and often younger well trained vignerons who have had international experience.

    Wine Tours France supports the Vigneron Independent organisation which has an emphasis on producers who grow the grapes, make the wine and sell it to the public.
    They say, "Discover the diversity and wealth of our wine heritage by meeting independent wine makers."
    Look for their sign when visiting cellars.
